What's Our Favorite Summer Accessory? 

A food thermometer! It's an important tool for summer grilling and without one you can't be sure that your meat, poultry, and other foods have reached a safe internal temperature. 

We can improve the number of consumers using food thermometers. We've got tips and resources to help.
Food Thermometer Tips to Share:  
  • Use these links to share this postcard and make sure everyone knows that 165 F is the safe temp for grilled chicken: Facebook or Twitter
  • Always use a food thermometer to make sure food has reached a safe internal temperature. The food thermometer should be placed in the thickest part of the meat and should not be touching bone, fat, or gristle. Check the temperature in several places to make sure the food is evenly heated. This USDA handout is a great reference sheet. 
  • Take the guesswork out of temperatures. Keep a copy of this chart for quick reference. 
  • Choose the best kind of food thermometer for grilling. Digital Instant-Read (Thermistor) or Thermometer-Fork Combination are best. Read more >
