How Hot Does My Grill Have To Be?
How do you know when the grill is hot enough to cook your steak?
Apply the 2-2 rule.
Put your hand two inches above the hottest part of the grill. If you can hold it there for two seconds–no more, no less–then you’re good to go.
With the grill at this temperature, you will be able to get a beautiful sear on the meat, locking in the juices and creating a great, tasty crust.
