Sandwich Cooked on a Double-sided Grill

Cooking on a Double-sided Grill Research by Washington State University found the best method of safely grilling meats is using a double-sided (clam-shell) type grill that cooks both sides of the meat at once. These grills also are one of the fastest and easiest means of grilling meat.

An added benefit of a clamshell grill is the ease of taking the temperature of thin cuts of meat from the side. According to a recent U.S. Department of Agriculture study, 1 out of every 4 hamburgers turns brown in the middle before it reaches a safe internal temperature.

Using a food thermometer (shown in the photo - lower right corner) is the only way to assure a safe temperature. Using a thermometer also assures the best flavor by helping you avoid overcooked foods. For more information on recommended cooking temperatures, see "Pass the Taste Test: Use a Thermometer"
