    Use a Thermometer for Consistency & Safety

    Using a thermometer is very easy and can really help in your cooking, grilling, and sausage making to ensure your cooking is consistent each time you smoke or cook meat. People have a tendency to under-cook beef and over-cook pork and chicken. Using a thermometer can allow you to easily know exactly when your product is done and avoid under-cooking or over-cooking and produce a much more consistent cook cycle for a perfect result every time. Thermometers are also great for meat safety to make sure you meet lethality and kill as much bacteria as possible for a safer product. There are tons of options for thermometers available from the extremely small and inexpensive units plus even fancier features and wireless capabilities. Check out the Meat Thermometers page at waltonsinc.com to find all the options available and make your cooking and grilling safer and more consistent.

    @parksider Thanks for the follow up!! I was really watching the internal temperature when they were in the rolling (HOT) water and making sure to pull them right at the 165. And then right into the ice water bath.

    @Jonathon Yes Jonathon-it’s in your head 🙂
    @mikeihuntr My only advice is to keep the water around 170F, not a rolling boil. If the casing are too tight they WILL explode then you have a really big pot of bad soup! A nice simmer is the way to go, take them out 155-160 and into a water bath. Here is a pic, we just use the turkey fryer with the basket. It makes it really easy to remove from the water and rinse. I will also recommend keeping a temp probe right in the meat you can see the wire going into the water. Good luck!!

    This was a big topic of conversation because we do freeze/thaw/process/refreeze venison and pork, never an issue. As a former restaurateur and certified food handler here is what Dept of Agriculture has to say. I’ll defer to the experts:

    Author: Alice Henneman, MS, RDN

    The U. S. Dept. of Agriculture (USDA) advises:

    Once food is thawed in the refrigerator, it is safe to refreeze it without cooking, although there may be a loss of quality due to the moisture lost through thawing. After cooking raw foods which were previously frozen, it is safe to freeze the cooked foods. If previously cooked foods are thawed in the refrigerator, you may refreeze the unused portion. Freeze leftovers within 3-4 days. Do not refreeze any foods left outside the refrigerator longer than 2 hours; 1 hour in temperatures above 90 °F.

    If you purchase previously frozen meat, poultry or fish at a retail store, you can refreeze if it has been handled properly, according to USDA.

    DO NOT thaw meat at room temperature, such as on the kitchen counter.

    Safety will depend on whether the raw product was handled properly before it was frozen, refrozen shortly after it was thawed, cooked to a safe temperature when it is eaten and handled safely if there are any leftovers.
