I read that as pretty obvious. As for grilling cuts, no, I don't like my steak to flinch when I try to cut it but it can't be anything above medium either. Med/rare is perfect to me.
Kinda like this
Once you go past med/well the texture changes IMO. Some like it... but on a great cut of beef or esp. lamb I "personally" think its a shame to take it to well done...
