How hot do my coals need to be?

Grilling

Don't be in a hurry to put your food on the grill. If your charcoal hasn't reached the proper temperature, you will end up with a burned mess...black on the outside, and raw on the inside. Wait until your charcoal has turned white on the outside, and then give yourself an extra 5 minutes before putting your meat on the grill. This allows for more even heating of the coals, and gives you a slower, more desirable cooking temperature. Check out some great grill pans for indoor grilling.
