Farmer's Daughter: National Grilling Month
Hi y'all, April Hamilton with Ag United. If you haven't heard already, July is national grilling month! I don't know about you, but for me, nothing beats a meal where I can cook a burger or steak on the grill! I work at the SDSU meat lab while I attend SDSU and have learned many things with one of the most important things is food safety. Practice food safety while grilling by using separate plates and utensils between raw and cooked products. Also, use a thermometer to check the temperature of the meat to make sure it is fully cooked. Ground beef and ground pork should be cooked to 160 degrees Fahrenheit, whereas steaks, roasts and chops should be cooked to 145 degrees Fahrenheit. After taking the meat off of heat, let it rest 3 minutes for it to reach its peak temperature.
