Grilling Good Eats: Give your steak the finger

Beef tempsGrilling Tip #10:  How do you know when your steak is done? Give it the finger. No, not the middle one, well, you can use that one if you want….. Poke the steak with your finger. If the meat is soft to the touch and doesn’t bounce back, it’s still pink inside. If it’s got some give but bounces back a bit, it’s medium. If it’s firm when poking, it’s well done.

Better yet, purchase a digital thermometer to check for the desired temp.  Remember, grilling isn't about how much time that steak has been on the on the grill (fires are like snowflakes - they're all different), it's about the temp.  Don't spend money on a beautiful steak, only to over-cook it on the grill.  That would be a disappointing meal.  In my Grill Master opinion, anything grilled to "Well Done" sucks, it's a waste of meat and money.
