Timing Technique

To my son Tommy,

One of the things to lament with your beef allergy is that you probably will never get into grilling.  This is a shame because your grandfather Leo has developed the perfect grilling technique for Downey's to cook steaks.  You put the steaks on a hot grill.  You go get yourself a beer.  You drink the beer in its entirety.  You flip the steak.  You get another beer.  You drink the beer.  You pull the steaks off the grill.  You eat.  That puts the steak at about medium rare.  There really is no temperature gauge or conversion.  You order your steaks by the beer count when your grandfather cooks.  I figure a three beer steak is medium and a four beer steak is medium well.  Anything more you risk never getting your steak because the grill master has lost focus on the beef and focused in on the hops.  But do not dismay, your grandfather has assured me when you turn of age he will teach you the same technique with grilled zucchini or grilled asparagus.

Sincerely with love from your dad,
