Will you be cooking over an open flame such as a camp fire or fire pit this weekend? Remember these simple tips to ensure your meat stays juicy, tender, and delicious! Tips: Cook over a low heat and plan to remove your food from the grill just before you think you should. Remove large pieces of meat, such as steaks or whole fish, about five degrees below their target temperature. Cover the meat with foil allowing it to continue to slow cook on the inside. Let the meat rest for 10 min. before slicing.
