8 Tips for Foolproof Roasting on the Grill
3. Check The Heat
If your grill doesn’t have a built-in thermometer, you’ll need to hang a metal thermometer (one that reads up to 550°F) through the vent. To gauge the temperature without a thermometer, hold your open palm about 5 inches above the grill rack; the fire is high (450-500°F) if you have to move your hand in 2 seconds, medium (350-400°F) if you have to move your hand in 5 seconds and low (250-300°F) if you have to move your hand in 10 seconds.
