Cooking Temperatures

There are a lot of meat recipes in this man pleasing meals roundup! The one thing that you want to get right whenever you are cooking meat is the internal temperature. Because it’s sometimes tricky to tell if meat is done, then use a meat thermometer every time before you eat your meat just to make sure.

  • Rare: 115 to 120 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Medium-Rare: 120 to 125 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Medium: 130 to 135 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Medium-Well: 140 to 145 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Well-Done: 155 to 160 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Burgers (Ground Beef): 160 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Pork: 145 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Chicken: 165 degrees Fahrenheit.

Keep in mind that the temperature of your meat rises about 5-10 degrees after you take it off the grill.
