Tipster: Resting Meat
Let your meat rest
Don’t forget that, when grilling or roasting meaton your barbecue, you need to take it off of your grill before it hits your desired temperature. All meats, especially large roasts, will increase in temperature after you take them off the barbecue. This occurs as the heat migrates from the outer layer of the meat to the cooler interior.
Steak needs time after it comes off the grill for the juices to absorb back into the meat. Putting it on a plate and covering it with foil for a few minutes will keep the steak nice and juicy, and give you a rest – whether or not you need it.
