Food Safety

Food safety is a very important part of enjoying the outdoor cooking experience. To keep food safe from harmful bacteria, follow these four basic steps:

Clean: Wash hands, utensils, and surfaces with hot soapy water before and after handling raw meat and poultry.

Separate: Separate raw meats and poultry fromready-to-eatfoods to avoid cross contamination. Use a clean platter and utensils when removing cooked foods.

Cook: Cook meat and poultry thoroughly to kill bacteria. Use a thermometer to ensure proper internal food temperatures.

Chill: Refrigerate prepared foods and leftovers promptly.

For more information call: USDA Meat and Poultry Hotline at 1-888-MPHOTLINE(888-674-6854)In Washington, DC

Or E-mail: mphotline.fsis@usda.gov

Or visit the USDA website at www.fsis.usda.gov

How To Tell If Meat Is Cooked Thoroughly

Meat and poultry cooked in the appliance often browns very fast on the outside. Use only thawed meat and a meat thermometer to be sure food has reached a safe internal temperature, and cut into food to check for visual signs of doneness.

We recommend food to be at least 40°F before cooking in your appliance.

Whole poultry should reach 165° F. Juices should run clear and flesh should not be pink.

Beef, veal and lamb steaks, roasts and pork chops can be cooked to 160° F.

NEVER partially cook meat or poultry and finish cooking later. Cook food completely to destroy harmful bacteria.

Use a meat thermometer to ensure proper internal food temperatures.
