Egg doneness chart

I guess I am like a lot of people and forget the correct internal temp for things I cook often, so I go to the forum and get the truth about temps. I think the internal temp usually seen are over cooked for safety concerns.I know get to the point. Can anyone provide a internal doneness chart that they have made or that does not overcook everything?

    The problem is eveyone likes things at different wife will not eat pork cooked to less than 160...but it is safe to eat at 140, so some do...too many variables..just stick to the old standard temps and adjust to your families preferences...this ain't rocket science... ;) :)
  • I think that is a great idea. We could put it under the cookbook section.
    BUT to make sure we account for everyone's tastes we can do one that is FDA recommended, then we could do one that is chef recommended, and then if people want to chime in at their preferred doneness level they can do that as well.

    Many cookbooks will have this info in chart form in an appendix, particularly grilling books B)
