It is important to ensure meat is thoroughly cooked.
Use a meat thermometer if you are barbecuing over the weekend, that's the advice from Safe Food if you want to avoid food poisoning.
A reading of 75 degrees Celsius for meat will ensure it is thoroughly cooked.
If you don't have a meat thermometer, there are three visual checks Safe Food recommends, juices in meat must run clear, It has to be piping hot and there is no pink meat left.
Communications Manager with Safe Food Dermot Moriarty says using a thermometer will leave nothing to chance
