Thermapen's internal meat cooking temperatures chart. A chart of meat temperatures you can rely on for succulent yet safe food
We have created a food temperature chart for UK cooks. This food and meat temperature chart enables you to easily refer to the temperature of cooked chicken, cooked sausages and beef based on your preference, as well as the internal temperature of cakes, jams and confectionery.
The number one meat cooking temperature chart.

Turkey Meat temperatures
Defrosted Turkey -1 to 4°C
Top Tip: Remove the turkey from the oven when it reaches 67°C. As it rests, the turkey meat temperature will rise to a safe and succulent 74°C.
Monitor the turkey as it cooks with a leave-in turkey thermometer, like the DOT. It will alert you when the temperature of your turkey is spot-on.
Double-check the internal temperature all over with an instant-read thermometer, such as the Thermapen ONE. Temperatures can vary in big pieces of meat, so ensure it's safe to eat throughout.
