So why aren't you sending this by telegraph? Or smoke signal?



Do you ride a horse to get places? Eat only the food you raise and catch yourself?


No, of course not. Use a dang thermometer, stop risking the well being of everyone you cook for. Just like my dad, who has served burgers that were FROZEN in the middle because they "felt right". An instant read thermometer is only not "old fashion" because it wasn't available.


Not like we're advocating you cooking Sous-vide, where it takes some relatively expensive dedicated equipment. It's a thermometer.

I saw that. I bought a lower priced pen a few weeks ago. It is all I need. These are really handy. Thermopens are the best though, especially for heavy duty carnivores.

Sometimes, I cut into the pork as is cooking, and it looks pink, and I see some red juice. Is that red juice blood or just myoglobin? Is it okay to eat pink pork meat and that red juice?

I have been making a lot of pork recipes. I usually cook till all the meat is white though. I think I may be over cooking.

I dont want to get swine flu and the what nots.
You cannot catch swine flu from eating pork--directly from the CDC

Can people catch swine flu/variant flu from eating pork?

Swine influenza has not been shown to be transmissible to people through eating properly handled and prepared pork (pig meat) or other products derived from pigs. For more information about the proper handling and preparation of pork, visit the USDA website fact sheet Fresh Pork from Farm to TableExternal.

Cook it to 145 and your fine. I know when I was a kid trichinosis was a concern of my mother's. Pretty much safe from that now.

Pinkish pork is fine.
