|It is strongly advised that you use a instant-read thermometer, which will help you
know when your meat is fully cooked. Meats will continue to cook after you
remove them from the heat. Small cuts like pork chops and hamburgers
will rise an additional 5° or so while large roasts will rise 10° or so.
You should always remove them shortly before they
reach the desired temperature.
A food thermometer should be placed in the thickest part of the
food and should not be touching bone, fat, or gristle.
