FANTASTIC GIVEAWAY – JUST IN TIME FOR SPRING!
Sprng is here again in Missouri. I can hardly believe it. I’m hoping it will stick around a while this time so that I can finally enjoy grilling season!
Have you ever prepared a meal, waited and waited for the meat to get done, then finally pulled it out, placed it on the table, only to find that it’s undercooked?
I HAVE A GREAT GIVEAWAY that I can’t wait to share with you! It will take the guesswork out of cooking.
I decided on this because so many of my students ask me how to tell when their meat is properly cooked. Besides the touch method that I blogged about in July of 2009, there’s a tried and true method which simply uses a temperature probe.
For the past 10 years I’ve been using the same temperature probe. It works perfectly and still after 10 years looks like new. Of course, I take care of mine and have followed the cleaning instructions so it doesn’t get damaged. I still like to use the touch method as well however, but for true accuracy of internal temperatures a probe never lies.
I especially love it when I’m grilling and hanging out with my guests outdoors waiting for the food. It alleviates running back and forth to the grill, opening and closing it causing the heat escape. With the long temerature probe you’re able to view the gauge on the outside of your grill and know when your meat is done. It also works great for the oven or even on the stovetop with its special clip attachments for pots.
Since I love the Polder Classic Cooking Thermometer so much I’ll be GIVING THREE (3) OF THESE AWAY so that you too can have perfectly done meat everytime.
