What are you guys using to monitor temperature of steaks and roasts when bbq-ing? I over cooked 4 nice NY strips last night and I was really pissed at myself. Would love a good recommendation on a thermometer. Iíd say I missed it by 3 minutes and blew the medium / medium rare I was after.

Thanks

Gas grill?
I'm sure the pros here will laugh at me but I use the Weber grill guide. Long ago they had a printed book that really went into detail with the types of meat, weight and/or thickness and desired doneness. It was on the money. They scaled back a bit and don't have specific times for rare, med rare etc. but it still works. I found it online and use it anytime I grill. It will show say a steak 1 inch thick 6 to 8 minutes on direct high heat, so 3 minutes then turn for another 3. 2 inch steak - 14 to 18 minutes - sear 6 to 8 minutes direct high heat and 8 to 10 minutes indirect high (meaning shut center burner(s) and continue to cook with no flame directly below the steaks).

I prefer on the med rare side and would rather put back on than overcook so I will cut time off.

I use a thermopen instant read for things like that, and a "Tenergy Solis Digital Meat Thermometer" to monitor larger longer cooking meats and the cooker itself.

Thermapen, if you really want to know right down to the gnat's ass. Mavericks are reasonably accurate. The great thing about the Thermapen is how fast it is. I can push it into a steak slowly and find the coldest spot, so I know exactly when it's done.

When I do steaks, I do them over really high heat using lump charcoal. I usually use rib eyes about 2" thick, often bone-in. I get them to 95-98 degrees at the coldest spot I can find, and then foil them tight and rest them for 10-15 minutes. Turns out fabulous.

When they're that thick and cooked over a hot fire, the middle is a lovely light pink at about 125 degrees when they're done resting, from the internal heat transfer.

Slightly off subject, but I found this (while going down a rabbit hole)Youtube video that you guys might find interesting on chef knives. Itís on David Holly from Knife Merchant, and he seems to really know his stuff. Curious what you you think!

I've used Victorinox for 10 years or so, after having used Wusthof prior to that. The V-nox won the "Best Chef's Knife" review from America's Test Kitchen (maybe it was still Cooks Illustrated then) against a lot of expensive knives. I have huge hands, and the V-nox grips are outstanding. I use whetstones and I can get them shaving-sharp with ease, though getting an initial 10-degree edge on them took some effort.

Anyone have experience with wireless temp probes you insert and read remotely ? I had the one with the wire from the unit to the probe that got all charged inside the Bbq in short order.

Thanks Iím chasing the perfect steak temp medium / medium rare. Exploratory surgery looks horrible lol.

Thank you guys for the inspiration! This was one of the easiest and tastiest smokes Iíve done. I followed Franklinís recipe here which was 275 for 5-6 hrs open, not wrapped. Still held together but it was like butter on a stick when cut. Bad photo before resting for an hour:




BTW, Costco had the plate ribs, but was told they donít get very many in.

I had a Maverick remote with probes for the pit and the food. The range wasn't great, though. About 50', as I recall.

Those are Traeger rib racks in the photo, BTW. They're the perfect size for my 22.5" Bullet.

Bumping my own Post...

I decided to buy a Wilmington grill. Assembled it on Friday and cooked steak on it for the first time last night. While the grill is obviously not yet seasoned, but the meat tasted great and the grill cooks most excellently.

But really what I want to convey is the build quality of this product is just fantastic. Every metal part save the drip tube (aluminum) and the ball valve (brass) is 304 stainless steel. The wheel axle is a solid stainless rod, the cotter pins are stainless steel, even the hinges for the hood are stainless steel. The grill body is welded, break-bent sheet stainless steel, every joint or connection is either welded or bolted with 300-series stainless hardware. The wheels are 10" solid rubber tires on plastic rims with bearings! The warranty on the grill body is 7 years. The burner carries a lifetime warranty.

If you want a rust-free all-stainless steel constructed BBQ grill, the Wilmington line of grills is a top-notch product.

Nicely done! Did you use a marinade? Or a baste? They're gorgeous.

Thanks!
Homemade marinade: Worshestire, lemon, onion powder, garlic salt, pepper, olive oil.
I've been experimenting making my own. I plan to do some Chicken Kabobs with a Ginger, orange, garlic glaze soon...

They were delicious!
