We’ve been doing quite a lot of grilling over the past year. While Tyla was pregnant, we were extra careful about making sure that the meat was cooked thoroughly. I got in the habit of using an instant read thermometer, but now that Elijah is here, I still find myself using it. Maybe it’s wimpy or geeky, but using that thermometer has saved me numerous times from either over or under cooking the meet. I use this Taylor thermometer and would recommend it. If you’re using Windows Phone, you can pick up a copy of GrillBuddy which will help you know the safe temperature for each type of meat. Don’t be afraid to geek out a little at the grill. You’ll know your dinner is safe and you’ll be able to pull it off at the perfect time!
