  • Top sirloin grill temperature is a little nuanced.

  • The best way to do it is to have two levels of heat: You want one side of the grill to be at around medium-high for searing and browning and the other at a medium-low level for cooking the meat through.

  • If you're using propane, simply light two sections, one for each of the temperatures.

  • If you're using charcoal, you can accomplish this by putting most of your coals on one side of the grill and leaving a few on the other side.

  • Start by putting your steak over the medium-high heat and searing it for a good three to four minutes on each side.

  • After that, you can move it over to the medium-low side until it reaches your desired doneness.

  • Be sure to use thongs as using a fork will cause all the delicious juices to run out of your steak.

  • The best way to check for doneness is to go by firmness.

  • A good trick for this is to place your index finger to the tip of your thumb, forming a circle with your thumb and finger.

  • Now use your other hand to feel the base of your thumb. 

  • This is what a rare cut would feel like.

  • Now use your middle finger and thumb to form the circle.

  • This is what medium-rare would feel like.

  • Moving down your fingers, your pinky and thumb would be a well-done steak.

  • It takes a bit of practice but using this method, you'll soon be able to tell the doneness of a steak by simply feeling it directly.
