Grilling Temperatures (perfect grilling temperatures)

grilling thermometer

With barbecuing being more of an art than a science, do you need a thermometer? know that all different meats have an ideal cooking temperature.

If you looking to go that extra mile and prepare the perfect piece of steak or that perfectly grilled chicken, then a grill thermometer would be essential...

Instead of using your hand and instinct to judge the heat of your grill a thermometer will tell you! (makes sense now!)

It can be difficult grilling large portions of meat like BBQ brisket for instance. Trying to figure out if it is done or not...

With a grill thermometer giving you the internal temperature, you will know exactly when it is done!! (oh yes!!)

No more burning your food on a charcoal grill because you have not judge the heat right?

Be able to grill delicate foods like chicken and fish just right. ( more dry chicken!) will know when the food is safe to serve! (no one getting sick)

So.. yes it is not cheating just a helping hand, get yourself a BBQ thermometer!

Grill thermometers come in many different forms, so which one do you choose?

Surface Thermometer: Gives you the surface temperature! Great for placing on the grill grid and reading surface temperature of the food. (makes sense!)

Internal Thermometer: Gives you a reading of the internal temperature of the food you are grilling! Perfect for large pieces of meat!

I have listed below a large selection of thermometers for you to choose from...

Some are digital, some are analogue and some have cool displays...
