Seafood Temperature and Cooking Guide

 Here are some guidelines for cuts, thicknesses, weights, and grilling times. Most of these are standard practice, but as a Pit Boss you to always use your best judgement.  Cooking times can sometimes be affected by things like – where you live, the temperature outside, wind, or even your desired doneness.
