Re: Temperature of Brake Rotor, Caliper, & Wheel ???
Thanks for the feedback everybody. On a side note, the harbor freight infrared thermometer may be on sale now for $30, not sure if that is everywhere or just in my area.
The infrared thermometer has many uses, but I especially like to use it to cook restaurant-grade steaks at home. I get a cast iron griddle plate* up to about 600F using the infrared thermometer, then toss on a thick juicy steak using metal tongs.**
I sear both sides for about 90 seconds, then put steak on a smaller metal tray & into the oven under the broiler at 500F for 5-10 minutes (rare-medium doneness). When done this way, you can make a steak at home that's on par with Ruth's Chris Steakhouse.***
(*Note: when cooking at 600F on a hi power gas burner, use cast iron cookware ONLY...others will be ruined)
(**Note: Sear steak OUTDOORS using hi heat source (ie: BBQ or turkey fryer burner) produces SMOKE! Sometimes grease from seared steak will catch flame briefly, & airborne grease will smell up your house...do NOT try this indoors).
(***The results are SO worth it!)
