It takes a lot of grilling practice to know the temperature of meat just by feeling it. This is an admittedly useful skill you can work toward, but really there’s no need. You can grab a great instant-read digital thermometer like the Habor Foldable Thermometer ($16). The small, foldable design is easy to palm so you can temp your food on the sly and then poke it with your finger and say, “Ah yes, medium rare” when your friends are looking. If you fancy something fancier, the MeatStick ($65) is a wireless thermometer you can leave in the meat, and it’ll broadcast the temperature to your phone.
