We’ve all been there before: You cut into your seemingly medium-cooked, char-broiled burger only to find it’s still a little too pink inside. What gives? Many things can affect how long it takes to properly grill perfectly tender meats, seafood, and vegetables. Take the guesswork out of grilling with this guide to average cook times.
The guide provides average times for a wide variety of beef, poultry, pork, and vegetable items you might plan to throw on the grill this summer—all you’ll need is a watch and a meat thermometer.
ALSO SEE A VISUAL GUIDE TO SEASONAL PRODUCE.
Remember, however, that nothing can ruin a BBQ faster than improperly cooked food. Always use a meat thermometer to make sure that any meat item is at the USDA-recommended safe internal temperature guidelines, which are also included on the guide. Happy grilling!
