Grill like a pro.
The world is a little out of sorts these days and 2020 is one of those years that is going to feel like a weird, confusing blur. It’s part of our job as humans to maintain some sense of the basic routines and traditions we’ve built up over that last few thousand years.
Like the caveman who rescued his family’s prized barbecue technique while the rest of the group was eaten alive by saber-tooth tigers, we too must preserve our own pieces of history, come what may.
You need to keep grilling, is what we’re saying.
Summer is here and that means it’s time to cook meat with fire. For many of us, it’s also a time to realize that we have no intrinsic talent in this area as we awkwardly rearrange meat on the grill while hoping for the best—bouncing back and forth between worrying about burning it to a crisp and worrying about undercooked salmonella burgers.
Isn’t this supposed to be relaxing?
It can be. You just need a decent meat thermometer. This one is built right into the tongs.
That means that each time you make another nervous and probably unnecessary meat flip, you can check in on the doneness of your burgers, steak, or chicken (or otherworldly plant-based meat substitute…we don’t judge).
And since you’re checking the temperature with a simple grab of the tongs, no one will even be the wiser. Your judgmental across-the-fence neighbor who tests meat doneness with the raise of one eyebrow doesn’t even have to know.
