Steak Myths Debunked

Just read this article on Serious Eats. It might be a good idea to read through it before the grilling season gets started in earnest.

I believe this to be common sense when cooking a steak..

I still allow a steak to sit out of the fridge before grilling/cooking. Perhaps more out of habit as, I've known Kenji's thoughts on this for a long time.. Also, I still have a hard time using anything other than tongs to turn a steak.. I suppose "don't poke it" was planted within my mind, long ago..

I only ever use either tongs or a spatula for meats on the grill.

That's easy to say when you already know how to cook one properly.

Same, although I use one for stovetop cooking, too. I'm not into burning my arms.

I use 12" tongs for stovetop and longer ones for the grill (15"?). I also have a nice long grip spat that keeps my hand away from serious heat.

I do, too, although the long spatula is too long to be comfortable for me. That's why DH grills the burgers

Earnest, ID is the grilling capital of the U.S. Grilling season doesn't officially start until grilling starts in Earnest.
