Internal temps.



  • I am somewhat confused on cooking/smoking internal temps. Is there a chart for this? I’m talking mainly about snack sticks, summer sausage, bologna, kielbasa-smoked sausage and hot dogs. I’ve seen from 152 to 165 degrees F. Thanks

    What you are looking for is Appendix A from FSIS/USDA.

    There is a temperature chart there that can be used as a guideline for what temperature to reach and for how long that temperature must be maintained.

    Many recommendations are for cooking to 160 or 165 F as a safety precaution to make sure you hit “lethality” and kill bacteria that could be present in your meat products.

    160 F is what I would consider to be a best practice for cooking met products in general, but depending on what meat you are cooking, it may be acceptable to cook to a different temperature.

    Let us know if we can help answer any other questions!
