I have a question about the recipe "Charred Corn and Avocado Salad with Lime, Chili and Tomato" from EmilyC. What exactly is "medium-high" temp on a broiler? My oven only has "broil." The temp can't be adjusted.
Are you channeling your best self with this comment? (If you're not sure, check out our Code of Conduct.)

My oven also only has "broil." Med high would mean to me - your oven rack should be on the next to highest level nearest the broiler flame (about 7-8" away)
Great. Thanks, Monita.

I agree with Monita. Your normal "broil" temp would be about 500F. For medium high I would set the oven dial to 400F. The reason for using the broiler is to put the char on with flame. Their are other ways to do this as well; an outdoor grill or even a blow torch.
