Do we not have a food temp chart anywhere?

Can we post one here? i  always forget what temps to cook different meats to and it would be useful for a lot of people i would think.

This is the basic.  You can vary it based on the time/temp charts in the food code as well.  Under the intact muscle rules.

I have a link to the USDA food code in this post.  http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/forum/thread/86620/feel-free-to-download-the-food-code-2009

What really made me think of this is i am wanting to do a pork loin and i see people only cooking it to 145-150 and i wanted to see a chart on it and Bballys chart is perfect but i dont see pork at those low temps, yes i know the temp will still rise a few degrees after taking it off the fire but its unclear to me?

There is a good one but its a pdf file so its only showing the first page, anyway it shows pork loins at 160 like i always thought too.

Maybe its a legal issue that we dont post one? Someone always wants to sue.

That is a good one pande, thanks!

CHOCOLATE GANACHE is my friend. I can't believe they have that listed. I have to go make a chocolate cake now. I'm drooling.

You need to use the intact muscle rule to cook pork medium rare.  I will post it later tonight for you.
