Do you know what temperature you should cook BBQ meats to? If not, you are not alone – 50% of adults don’t know that it’s 75°C. That’s why we‘ve teamed up with safefood to ask people to ‘Trust the meat thermometer’ and cook meat safely on the BBQ.
Burgers, sausages, pork and chicken should always be cooked to 75°C. To check the temperature correctly you should:
- Take the meat off the heat
- Insert a clean thermometer into the thickest part of the meat – usually the centre or for a whole chicken it’s between the breast and the leg
- The meat is fully cooked when the temperature reaches 75°C. You can use a dial or digital meat thermometer and you should always wash the meat thermometer properly after use. For more advice, go to safefood.net
If you are unsure about cooking over coals, or if you’re cooking for a large group, you could cook your meat indoors before adding it to the BBQ for that smokey flavour.
