Other than the flavor, the most important part of barbecuing is serving safe-to-eat meats.
Preparing meat to the safe-to-eat temperature is the only true way to ensure that you and your fellow diners are getting the safest experience, and remember, you can’t tell whether meat is safely cooked by looking at it.
Also, you don’t want to overcook your meat; meats can be pink in the middle even when they have reached a safe internal temperature.
