Knowing when the food that you’re cooking on your grill is done is one of the biggest challenges facing new BBQ masters. There are three grilling rules for knowing when your food on the grill is done:
- You can cook food longer, but you can’t uncook overcooked food.
- Undercooked meat can kill you.
- Trust and verify. Experience is your best friend when knowing your food has reached a certain level of doneness. A good meat thermometer is an essential tool for your BBQ toolkit, because only a thermometer can tell you if you have reached a certain temperature.
