    WessB,[p]Directions to your fest would be appreciated ;-). That sounds wonderful![p]I would remove at 140°F internal as the meat is medium at this point and a 10-15 minute rest will allow it to finish without drying.[p]Spin

    Spin,[p]How long should 1 1/2 inch stuffed chops be on the grill. I have had trouble with them in the past being too dry.[p]FYI, I do not use a polder.[p]Dec

    Dec,[p]A polder or reliable temperature probe is very convienent in helping to understand meat doneness, especially with stuffed items. Since the stuffing is cooked to almost done prior to the cook it only needs to reheat. A temperature gauge needs to read the inside of the meat - not the stuffing.[p]Sans the gauge, you can use the feel method. Press on the raw meat with your finger to get a feel of it. As the meat cooks, it will stiffen. Check the doneness by slicing and peeking when the meat has the same feel of pressing your finger into the meat of the web between your thumb and forefinger when your hand is closed into a loose fist.[p]Lower cooking temperatures tend to be longer cooks, but provide a moister meal along with a longer time window between when the meal is almost done and overcooked.[p]Spin

    Spin,[p]As of now I just use the feel method. Forehead, well done. Nose, medium. Chin, rare. The downside is it doesn't work well for the larger pieces of meat. [p]Dec

    Nor does it work if you have a bony nose or chin!
