Warmer weather and summertime approaching means more food being prepared on the grill. K-State Research and Extension Food Safety Specialist Karen Blakeslee says to use a food thermometer to make sure your food is fully cooked and to make things simple there are three numbers to remember.
Blakeslee says a variety of food thermometers are available and they all work a little differently, so she suggests buying one that best suits your style of grilling. Blakeslee says to prepare several ice chests to keep food cold and to separate items. Keep beverages in one chest, ready-to-eat foods in another and raw meats in a third.
