I was always afraid I wasn't cooking our meat long enough so I would always
cook it just a little bit more making the meat tough & dry. I invested in a
$30 talking cooking thermometer & I don't regret it one bit. If you can, I
recommend folks invest in one of these wonderful kitchen tools. If you are
unsure about what internal temp to cook which meats, just do a quick Google
search before cooking to find out.
