Many of you will be firing up the grill and cooking some of your favorites like brats and hamburgers this Memorial Day weekend.
And many of us are guilty of throwing them on the grill, and once they look done, we take them off and eat them.
But experts say you shouldn't do that because they need to reach a certain temperature before they're safe to eat.
The USDA recommends steaks have an internal temperature of 145 degrees.
"Anytime it's ground meats, it should have an internal temperature of 160 degrees," says Ray Ingman, meat manager at Trig's.
Of course, you also need to make safety your number one priority while using a grill.
"Remember to never use a grill inside, that's a big thing with charcoal grills, there's CO that comes off of them, never use them in a garage, make sure they're outside, well ventilated area," says Chief Deputy John Happli with the Rib Mountain Fire Department.
You should also never dump gas on a grill, and if a fire does start, call the fire department.
"That's what the holidays are all about, slowing down and relaxing, having a good time, so just take that same approach with a grill and you'll have a great weekend," says Happli.
