this is the first thing i thought about when i read the other post. the mind is amazing. if you think you are eating blood, your mind will make you think you get that "metallic" taste. but its actually not there.

my parents used to be well done people. they are now medium-medium well. its all texture for them. but when we have cookouts, i'm cooking steaks. i over the past 10 years have slowly gotten them to where they are today.

as for chicken. a friend of mine raises their own birds. they cook their chicken, medium most of the time. i love slow cooked chicken, but i long for the ability to eat my chicken medium. it was that good.

Cooking chicken is my nemesis.
It is the most overcooked meat bar none, but for me I want that flesh silky soft and moist, want to get it off before it reaches the point of getting that sandpaper grain when you slice it, to have the blood flecks along the bone.
I almost always cook too far.
sigh

Your parents love you. They will probably choke down anything you serve with a smile. That's what parents are for.

I think there are many PNWBA judges in this club...at least the comments I've received on my perfectly cooked (IMHO) tri-tip lead me to believe so.

It seems I must pretend to be an "overcooker" to make them happy!!

I will never be a member of this club.

Some things are tender when well done but hardly anything that is grilled.

Moist, juicy and tender rule the grilling world.

Your club will be a cult and not mainstream!

sandiegobbq,

Enjoy your fresh roadkill. I'm sure it is plenty juicy.

If enjoying well cooked meat = Cult, I'm good with dat.
