    LOL WUT? You do not need to let meat hit room temp before cooking and honestly, telling that to amature chefs is a great way to cause a full blown foodborne illness epidemic…

    The best bit of advice for grilling, patience… Don’t rush to put your meat on the grill as soon as the coals are hot.

    Put things like potatos or corn on the grill when the coals are all lit and cover it with the vents wide. When the coals are white, then add meat, when you see some of the liquid come to the surface, turn, I always turn 2-3 times depending on the meat and desired tempature. Saves sauces for last turn to avoid burning.
