    what temp to cook pork?

    googled pork temp after watching: The Best Pork Tenderloin Sliders I've Ever Made | SAM THE COOKING GUY 4K - YouTube
    The federal agency says it is lowering the recommended safe cooking temperature for whole cuts of pork from 160 degrees to 145 degrees and adding a 3-minute rest time.


    time for pork tender grilled to 145*F internal, and rest.

    Happy grilling to you and PBR too.

    I pull my pork at 140* and let carry over bring it to where ever its wants to go. I like a bit of pink and as much juiciness as we can get !!

      This pork chop was pulled at 138-140f. I did not take its temp after it came off.

        Tenderloin and chops I've always taken them off between 140-145.

          Well food safety is usually a matter of temp AND time. Not sure about the trichinosis figures as far as when it's killed but pork is WAY safer now, too. All that said, I'll never cook pork less than medium as I don't like it with any rare-ish part (texture thing).

              I aim for 135-140 after carryover, so I pull before that depending on the size of the piece and cooking temperature.

                Did you get the Food Temperature Guide magnet when you joined up? You should have. It will have that same info on it. A webview version of it is here: https://amazingribs.com/files/magnet_11_inch_v3.5.jpg

                Also here's Meathead's recommended meat temps article (including the agencies' references) with lots of detail: https://amazingribs.com/technique-an...g-temperatures

                  The magnet is stuck on my refrigerator.
                  As I was growing up pork and chicken need not be pink, no pink.
                  And that was the way it was.

                I am old and I remember when trichinosis caused real fear - worms would eat your brains, all kinds of horror stories. Even now I have some problems with pinkish pork - I know it is safe, but it is hard to get over something that terrified me as a youngster (my family was kind of insistent on the no pink part. My grandfather ran a hog farm for awhile and my mom and uncles and aunts ate a lot of fresh pork as youngsters). So my chops are usually on the dry side. I am working on it though. I SV them most times when I cook them; my wife makes a mean breaded and fried chop that is cooked to just past pink but still juicy. Without temp devices. She is an old school cook.

                  Similar comment to Jfrosty27: I am younger than you but I grew up with a mom who thought that. She cooked pork chops to about the same consistency as dad's wallet. I didn't care for pork chops or "roast beef' (which was cheap eye of round cooked to a thousand degrees internal) until my mid/late 20s when I started reading recipes for them and bought a thermometer and learned you could have safe, juicy meat.

                  Much like you I was raised in an old school farm family. Good grief everything was well done. Not only we're our pork chops cooked to death, they were sliced about 1/4 inch thick. I have no idea why the thin cut chop became popular. I still see them at the store once in a while. I'm not sure I'm even quick enough anymore to get one of those flipped and off the grill before it's over 145.

                  Thin pork chops sure do cook fast. We get them at Costco now and then.

                gboss what you said. Of course, my SUWYC picture would state otherwise from last night. That was my goal and then technology issues in the house messed me up.

                    This is old news. The USDA announced that the safe temp for pork was 145F in their 2011 temperature guidelines. In 2011, they said:

                    "Now there will only be 3 numbers to remember: 145 for whole meats, 160 for ground meats and 165 for all poultry."

                    https://www.cidrap.umn.edu/news-pers...safe-temp-pork

                    I used to cook pork loin dutifully to 160 - probably much higher as I had an analog dial probe thermometer - and hated it. Now I cook to 140, letting carryover take it to 145, and its fabulous.

                    I gotta go thaw out some tenderloins for my next cooking adventure!
