Who couldn't use a few tips right from the meat cutters themselves about making sure your fourth of July barbeque is safe to eat by cooking it to the right temperature.
Meat cutter Matt Battel said,
"it would be at least 145 for rare and then um medium er well done is 170 175"
Picking out the best piece of steak for grilling can be a challenge. Battel says pick thicker cuts like Rib eye, T-bone, and New York so they don't get too dry during the grilling process. He says cook the meat until the juices run clear for red meat. And for boneless and skinless chicken cook about 20 minutes on each side.
