Grilling & Temperature Tips:

While the degree of doneness of your beef will vary depending on the preparation method and size/shape of each cut, these recommendations can serve as a starting point. 

Honest Beef Internal Temperature Guide

To measure temperature, insert a meat thermometer or instant-read thermometer into the side of the cut, with the tip at the center of the cut, not touching bone or fat.

Remove steaks and burgers from heat when the thermometer reads 5°F below the desired temperature for doneness, and removed roasts 5-10°F lower than desired doneness, as the internal temperature will continue to rise as the beef rests away from heat.
