Pictures: Testing the perfect meat thermometer
This grilling season, instead of relying on poking, stabbing and old-fashioned guessing to tell us when our meat is done, it is time to step up and find the perfect meat thermometer. We tried several types and found a wide range of accuracy and features.
Word to the wise: When checking doneness, we found a combination of intuition and science works best. Use your senses in tandem with your tools, and with a little practice your steaks will come out to order every time.
