Headline

Easy read summary - Meat thermometers are lifesavers and an essential bit of HO kit - highly recommended

Longer version(see below)

Before I took the plunge into the world of HO cooking I trawled the internet for advice, which is how I chanced upon this wonderful site - I liked it so much I keep coming back to it thank you halogenovenrecipesforum

Anyhoo

One piece of advice that registered was to use a meat thermometer as the appearance of a beautifully cooked piece of meat in a HO can be deceptive. Suspect

Now I don't favor rare meat and like to avoid tummy upsets(despite the silver weight loss lining!)- so this seemed good advice although I'd never used one before or even contemplated using one in the course of my regular non-HO cooking exploits.

So I bought one as part of my HO investment(extender ring etc)

And today it has maybe saved me from the perils of undercooked chicken No

Bought a small(well the smallest available) pack of chicken breasts to slow cook for supper(OK I confess I'm still unfaithful to my HO)

Three pieces of chicken in the pack - Hmm perhaps too much for supper

*tummy rumbles*

Aha Roast chicken sarny for brunch yum

chef

Bish/bash/bosh two in the slow-cooker seeya in 10 hours guys

Put remaining chicken in HO

200C(put some stuffing balls in as well)

15 minutes on middle shelf with extender - nicely roasted so turn it over

10 minutes more - looks cooked

But wait - test it with the meat thermometer 150C - bit low 165C is the safe recommendation

5 more minutes - test again 165C+ and not
too brown outside

Let it rest for 10 minutes (and cool down enough to put in a sandwich)

feedme

devour

I'm convinced the meat thermometer saved my life and I'm so glad I shelled out the extra £3.50 to buy one.

Hi Valkyrtb

I didn't invest in a meat thermometer either until the HO but it is a priceless bit of kit. I'm glad it saved your life 'cos if it hadn't we wouldn't have got to read your entertaining post.
lol!
