BBQ It Up – November 3

/, Home, Moi, Photo Challenge, Reviews, Shopping/BBQ It Up – November 3

Holiday season is approaching and I am staying home and cooking… a lot!

I’ve recently gotten brave enough to start cooking everything in the kitchen by myself… this includes meat! If you know me, you know in the past I wouldn’t even touch meat, let alone cook it!

Cave Tools was gracious enough to offer a review of their meat thermometer! It was super easy to use and it made cooking steaks a breeze! I googled the correct temperature for steak (see below for suggested times) and just waited for it to be done in the broiler. It was so easy and I felt really comfortable pulling out the meat when it was done, because there was no guessing game. I have since used the tool multiple times and it is as easy to use each time.
