• When you"re selecting pork, look for the darkest shade of pink that you can find. Pale pork is not your friend.
• When reusing a marinade that has been in contact with meat as a baste it"s absolutely critical that you bring the reserved marinade to a boil for five minutes to ensure that you"ve killed any germs. If you"d like to baste, just reserve a portion of the marinade for later use.
• Only flip your meat once! The pork will let you know it’s ready to be flipped when it stops sticking to the grill.
• The USDA doneness temperature for pork has been reduced to 145*. There is no need for grandma"s balsa wood pork chops. Slightly pink pork is not poison.
• Don’t pull your beans off the grill until the bacon is nice and crispy.
