Low & Slow, or Hot & Fast?

To determine how hot to grill or smoke your meats, you must first know what food you’re grilling....or smoking. Items such as steak, hamburger, boneless chicken breasts, and vegetables do well at medium, medium high, to high temperatures and cooking over a direct heat source. Meats such as ribs, pork shoulders, Boston butts, whole turkeys and whole chickens need longer to cook and will require a lower temperature and cooking with an indirect heat source.
