Key Temperatures

Cooking foods to the right temperature is the best way to guarantee great flavor and food safety. Before you do anything else, get yourself a reliable thermometer, preferably an instant-read thermometer.

This will help you know how your meat is cooking, when food is safe to eat, and what temperature your grill is holding (and no, it will not “let out all the juices” if you probe your meat). Here are some important temperature points you should know:

  • Fish should be cooked to 145° F
  • Ground meats (including your burgers) should be cooked to 160° F
  • Poultry should be cooked to 165° F

Beef Temperatures

  • Rare is 120-130° F
  • Medium-rare is 130-135° F
  • Medium is 135-145° F
  • Medium-well 145-155° F
  • Well-done is 155° F

Veggies and Fruits

Grilling isn’t just for meat. In fact, many fruits and vegetables take on a whole new flavor after a few minutes on the grill. Take these tips and tricks for grilling your favorite produce:

  • Brush vegetables with oil before throwing on the grill.
  • Thin, tender produce (like asparagus, bell pepper, and onion) is best over medium, direct heat and cooks quickly.
  • Thicker, tougher produce (like cauliflower, squash, and potato) is best with lower, indirect heat and cooks more slowly.
  • Root veggies like potatoes will cook best when they’re cut into disks or chunks.
  • Cook veggies and fruits until they are tender with just a bit of crunch.
  • Fruits from trees are best on the grill. Try apples, peaches, figs, and pears.


If you want to be grilling for years to come, it’s important to clean and maintain your BBQ Grill Box. Use the info below to properly care for your grill:

  • Clean your grill grates before each use. Leave the grease and food on your grill grates after you’ve finished cooking, as this will provide a protective layer between cooks.
  • To clean before you cook, heat the grill for 15 minutes on medium with the lid closed until it stops smoking. Then scrape the grates with a grooved spatula or a grill brush.
  • Dip the brush in water for steam to help loosen stubborn food bits.
