Your friend wants hot dogs, your aunt wants chicken and your dog wants steak. And of course your vegetarian daughter wants kebabs and corn on the cob and your son wants pizza and avocados. That's a lot of different food on the grill for you to keep track of — even with the help of a trusty thermometer. But now, thanks to this infographic by Column Five Media, you don't have to worry.

It's a cheat sheet that you can have handy for quick reference so you don't undercook those burgers or overcook those hot dogs. It lists the average times you must grill a variety of beef, poultry, pork and vegetables. All you’ll need is a watch and a meat thermometer to make sure all meat is at the USDA-recommended safe internal temperature guidelines. Don't know them? No problem! They are also included on the cheat sheet.

Happy grilling!
