I cook on the grill most of the time. When The Woman asks, you sure you got that done enough? I always say...yep it's done cause I'm tired of cooking it.
Pretty scientific method of cooking.
I thought, after mangeling a piece of steak to the entirety to done side of things, there's got to be a better way. So I started searching for a good cooking thermometer. I had a grease thermometer and a meat thermometer. One of those old style dial jobbers that took forever to read the temp on anything.
This is what I landed on...a Thermapen Mk4. Have had it for about three weeks and it's everything it's advertised to be. Worth the hundred bucks it costs, to me.
I don't cook anything without it anymore. Getting something the right temp can really make a big difference. Take a half assed piece of meat and turn it into something good...just by cooking it to the right temp.
