Broiler Temps?

I've got a recipe that says to heat my broiler to 500 degrees. My (gas) broiler only has a "High" and "Low" setting, and I have no idea what temps those two cover. So which should I go with?

Some more detail - I'm making broiled tomatoes, and the recipe says to have them about 3 inches from the heat for 10-15 minutes. I'm pretty sure that if I had it on high for that long I'd end up with tomato charcoal, but maybe I'm wrong...
