I have made all kinds of sausage now with my spring bear and it is great, I would like to make a roast or ham, what does the internal temp need to be to be safe to eat, can you cook it medium and live to tell about it's deliciousness?
Make sure that the internal
temp is at least 145 degrees F. This isn't something you want to be "close enough" on! Trichinosis will make a bout of Giardia seem like a walk in the park.
Definitely well cooked...
Here's an ADF&G pamphlet on Trichinosis...it includes some cooking recommendations:
Here's more detail from CDC:
Opinions range from 160 - 170 degrees.
good post. I was wondering this myself, since I had a roast off my bear smoked and one made into a ham.
So what this say.......
Is basically as long as I smoke/cook this to an internal temp of 160 degrees I should be good to go......?
