I don't think my gas stove has an accurate themostat of any kind. I use my hand if I'm making a pizza or something. You have to keep an eye on the thing that's cooking I guess. If I cooked pies everyday, I would probably get it nailed down by trial and error. I wouldn't ever need to know the exact temperature as a scientific measurement though. The hand measurement is like "hot" vs. "really hot".
