  • Aluminum saucepans react negatively with vinegar or citrus juices and produce off flavors. Always use stainless steel or enameled pans when heating barbecue based sauces.
  • Temperature – measure temperature by inserting the meat thermometer into the thickest part of the chop next to the bone.
