One frequently asked question about pork is when is it done.

Chops and lean roasts should be taken off the heat at 150 degrees Fahrenheit to 155 degrees Fahrenheit and allowed to rest for 10 minutes. The temperature rises five degrees while resting. The USDA recommends a serving temperature of 160 degrees Fahrenheit for ultimate safety.
