  • If you can withstand 3 to 4 seconds, the grill is medium, or 350° to 375° F.

    Interesting quick reference points.

    My Weber seems to cook at a much slower during winter months than during summer. Quite noticably, though I'm not sure why, given that I keep the cover on both seasons. Wonder if I can detect a difference using your hand method? Will try it.

    Thanks.

    This seems dangerous to me. I hate getting burned.

    Hmmm... I think I'll use my oven thermometer instead. It's a lot easier on my digits. Blisters always did bother me.. .
