Should I Salt Meat Before or After Cooking?

Do you salt meat before it's cooked or after? I heard salting before or while cooking made meat tougher and not as juicy?

Near the end of the cooking time or after it is done cooking. I checked it out online and many websites say that salting meat before cooking coaxes out the juices and makes the meat drier.

I prefer to salt meat just before I start cooking it. I watch a lot of the cooking shows on Food Network, and the chefs do it this way.

Every chef I have seen on Television (I watch lots of Food Network and Cooking channel) all salt before cooking. I salt my meat before cooking.

In my experience it depends on the cut of meat and how it's being cooked or the recipe. I definitely don't salt the steaks when marinading them and some steak cuts are just so tasty stand alone that I can't bring myself to add anything to them before or after ;-)
