When is the Grill Hot Enough? (Ready?)
When is the Grill Hot Enough? (Ready?)

Preheating the grill is essential....

Preheating ensures that the grill grate is hot enough to sear the food, and can help loosen old debris.  Always cover your grill during the preheating process. A charcoal grill will generally be ready about 30 minutes after the coals are lit. A gas grill will be ready after about 15 minutes of preheating.

To gauge the temperature of either a gas or charcoal grill, measure the amount of time you can comfortably hold your hand above the fire. Place your hand as close as possible to the grill without touching it. Use caution and care when doing this to prevent accidents and burns. Be sure that sleeves are pulled back, and that nothing flammable will approach the grill-you may want to remove jewelry. Count the number of seconds you can comfortably hold your hand there, being sure to pull your hand away before it hurts. Use the following chart as a guideline for grill temperature:

Very hot (you can hold your hand just above grill level only 1 to 2 seconds)
Hot (you can hold your hand just above grill level only 2 to 3 seconds)
Medium-hot (you can hold your hand just above grill level only 3 to 4 seconds)
Medium (you can hold your hand just above grill level only 4 to 5 seconds)
Medium-low (you can hold your hand just above grill level only 5 to 6 seconds)
Low (you can hold your hand just above grill level 6 to 7 seconds)
