RE: Pork -- medium rare??
A long, long time ago, my brother and I decide to grill some pork chops in our parent's absence. This something never done before in our house. We weren't experienced grillers, but we took a stab at it, and the chops came out a little pink. Hungry daredevils-we, trichinosis, or not, we ate them, declaring them the best pork chops we'd ever eaten. My mom flipped out when we told her.
IMHO there is nothing worse than overcooked pork. I loath the pre-marinated pork bits the grocery stores sell to people who can't cook pork. Its 'Moist and Tender (tm.)' but it'll keep you up all night guzzling water...(and of course eliminating said..).
Therefore when the gods are with me, my pork is...I guess you would call it medium rare.
