The Beef Checkoff Where would grilling be without an instant-read thermometer? Admit it - most of us aren't used to cooking meat over an open fire or hot coals, and our sense of timing is a little thrown off. It's always helpful to have a meat thermometer, whether you're cooking inside or out, but we find absolutely necessary when grilling. Today the Beef Board and their $1 Beef Checkoff are giving us five meat thermometers for five readers and their grilling efforts. Read on to see how you can win one! The Beef Checkoff is an information drive to help consumers cook their beef to a safe and healthy temperature. You can check their site for info on cooking beef, including cooking videos and thermometer tips. This thermometer is a specially branded Beef Checkoff meat thermometer, so we don't have any retail options for you to buy it. But we do have some good suggestions for similar thermometers: • OXO Good Grips Analog Instant Read Meat Thermometer - Our contacts at the Beef Board say that in their opinion, this is the best analog choice because it has a large, easily readable display. • Polder Kitchen Thermometer • Taylor Connoisseur Series Digital Instant Read Meat Thermometer Do you have a favorite instant read thermometer? Also check out our post on how to sanitize an instant-read thermometer. TO ENTER THE GIVEAWAY: What would you like to grill with this new thermometer?
