Easy Steps To Grilling Beef
Prepare charcoal for grilling. When coals are medium, ash-covered (30 minutes), spread in single layer and check cooking temperature. Position cooking grid. (To check temperature, cautiously hold the palm of your hand above the coals at cooking height. Count the number of seconds you can hold your hand in that position before the heat forces you to pull it away; 4 seconds for medium heat.)
Season beef (straight from refrigerator) with herbs or spices as desired. Place on cooking grid directly over coals.
After cooking, season beef with salt, if desired. (Note: For steaks thicker than 1˝ inches, remove from grill when thermometer registers 5° F below desired doneness. Tent loosely with aluminum foil. Let stand 10 minutes. Temperature will continue to rise 5° F to reach desired doneness.
Grilling at medium to medium-low temperatures ensures even cooking. If the temperature is too high, beef can char and become overcooked on the outside before the interior reaches the desired doneness. Charring beef is not recommended.
Trim excess fat from meats to avoid flare-ups while grilling. To trim the excess fat off, you will need a good boning knife. Why not order one of our Forschner Boning Knives! This is the same knife we have used for decades at Jackson Frozen Food Locker. Order one today for only$24.99 - shipping included in this price! We believe we have the lowest price on the Internet on Forschner Boning Knives. If you find a lower price, including shipping, please e-mail us, and we will try and beat that price!
Use long-handled tongs for turning steaks; spatulas for burgers. A fork will pierce the beef causing loss of flavorful juices.
Place each steak on the grill for one minute. Turn and grill on the second side for an additional minute. Turn and rotate 45 degrees and grill for half the remaining cooking time. Turn again. If you do this right you will get a nice diamond pattern of grill marks.

The BEST way to determine doneness of your beef is to use a high quality meat thermometer. The following web page from the USDA tells everything you need to know about meat thermometers!
