Temperature card

Let us thank you on behalf of your customers for keeping them informed and safe by giving them Food Temperature Safety Guide. These cards contain both USDA recommended and Chef recommended benchmark temperatures for meats. We all need to do a better job of teaching cooks the importance of digital thermometers. Please use these cards to help you sell them.

We will even provide you with a free acrylic stand so that you can make them readily available at your checkout counter or elsewhere in your store! Please stuff them in shopping bags. When you run low, just scan the QR code on the back of the acrylic stand and you can get as many as you need. Or if you prefer, send your request to

Each card is printed on 100-pound cardstock and they are perfect for your customers to display permanently on a refrigerator for quick and easy reference. The cards also have a QR code that enables them to get one of our Deep Dive ebooks for free, providing them with an in-depth info on their choice of steak, chicken, ribs, turkey, brisket, and sous-vide-que.

High quality websites are expensive to run. If you help us, we’ll pay you back bigtime with an ad-free experience and a lot of freebies!

Millions come to every month for high quality tested recipes, tips on technique, science, mythbusting, product reviews, and inspiration. But it is expensive to run a website with more than 2,000 pages and we don’t have a big corporate partner to subsidize us.

Our most important source of sustenance is people who join our Pitmaster Club. But please don’t think of it as a donation. Members get MANY great benefits. We block all third-party ads, we give members free ebooks, magazines, interviews, webinars, more recipes, a monthly sweepstakes with prizes worth up to $2,000, discounts on products, and best of all a community of like-minded cooks free of flame wars. Click below to see all the benefits, take a free 30 day trial, and help keep this site alive.

2) Try to post your question to the appropriate page.

3) Tell us everything we need to know to help such as the type of cooker and thermometer. Dial thermometers are often off by as much as 50°F so if you are not using a good digital thermometer we probably can’t help you with time and temp questions. Please read this article about thermometers.
