Always Gauge the Grill Temperature
You don’t bake everything in the oven at the same setting on the thermostat. Grilling is no different. Some foods require high heat (450° to 600°F), others moderate (350° to 450°F), and still others low (275° to 350°F). This is easy in most gas grills because they have a thermometer in the lid, but charcoal grills usually lack this feature. A deep-frying thermometer with a long metal stem can double as a grill thermometer. Insert the stem into one of the vent openings in the grill lid to take the reading.
