Wow! A whole ton!?

Really, how much drips off? Guessimate it. A tablespoon? a couple of teaspoons? Subtract those.

The oil in the dressing keeps the meat moist, that counts. (Google 'oil smoke point')
The charring part of 'burn-off' is sugars (carbohydrates) caramelizing. That counts, too.
The smoke part of the 'burn-off' is water turning into steam, ignore it. No calories, no nutrients, and besides, you're not consuming it.
