Grill Temperatures

To determine the temperature of your grill place your hand at grill level. Depending on how long you can hold your hand (see chart below) determines the temperature of your grill.




Very Hot: Hand can be held at grill level only 1 to 2 seconds.

Hot: Hand can be held at grill level only 2 to 3 seconds.

Medium-hot: Hand can be held at grill level only 3 to 4 seconds.

Medium: Hand can be held at grill level only 4 to 5 seconds.

Medium-low: Hand can be held at grill level only 5 to 6 seconds.

Low: Hand can be held at grill level only 6 to 7 seconds.

NOTE: This isn’t a contest. It also goes without saying, but I am going to say it anyways, “Do NOT place your hand on grill!”
