I meant the pics were great as a representation of doneness.

The verbiage...we could debate what is perfect and what is undercooked/overcooked.

I think you are SPOT ON. It's a texture thing with me also. Medium is often criticized as overcooked.

Why waste perfectly good charcoal on a medium rare cook? Just put it on the grates and give it a good once over with the blowtorch.

I'm a new member so I'll take some grief. Anything coming off my grill is well done, no pink. When I was 12 years old, me a friend and his dad went to a steakhouse for dinner. Me and my buddy thought it would be a good idea to order our steaks rare. Then we got to goofin around about it. When the steaks got there we both cut into them, it was a blood pooling experience, literally. They were cold, heck the mushrooms that came with it were still semi-frozen, and stretched off the fork. My friends old man made us sit there and eat everything. No sending them back no complaining. That's what we ordered, that's what we got. Traumatized me to the point of whether or not it has been cooked to the safe temp if there is pink it is still going to make me sick. I have tried to get over it and 18 years later I just can't push through it.

danparker77,

Welcome to the club.

See Ron, I'm not the only one with "The animal is still bleeding if it is red" phobia.

It depends on what it tasted like rare. If it was safe, and tasted good, sure.

As far as beef goes, hey I'm a rare-dang near raw meat guy. You've heard people say "Cut off it's horns and wipe it's butt." Not for me. Leave the horns on so I have something to hold onto. Since I don't like my steak handled too much, wiping it's butt is optional.

WvSmoke,

Not only are you not in the club, I think you made some of the hard core undercookers grimace.

My usual comment, when asked how I like my steak:

"I like my steak so rare, that if theres a good vet in the house, he might be able to save it!"

Cheers!

Bill
