Invest in a Thermometer: Make sure your meat is mouthwatering and ready to chomp with our internal meat temperature guide. Take the guesswork out of grilling, use a meat thermometer to make sure food is done, not overcooked.

Safe Minimum Cooking Temperatures: 
  • Steak and Pork: 145°F
  • Poultry: 165°F
  • Ground Meat: 160-165°F

Steak Tip: Turn the steak only once, halfway through cooking time.

The Grill: Oil the cooking grate to stop food from sticking to the grill and to create great-looking grill marks.
1. Heat the grill and scrape it clean with a grill brush or crumpled aluminum foil.
2. Wipe the grill with oil-doused paper towels. Reapply as needed. Select an oil with a high burning temperature, such as vegetable or grapeseed oil.
 
The Flavor: For best results, marinate meat with rubs or liquids for 3-12 hours to prepare them for the dry heat of the grill. Salt helps seasonings soak into the meat. Acidic liquids like vinegar, juice, or wine help tenderize meat and create full flavor.
