21. Use a meat thermometer

If you don't have an instant read thermometer, I recommend this one:

If you have $90 to spend on a thermopen, get one of those, but the one above will work fine.

Pork cooked to 130 degrees is perfectly safe, but will still be pink in the middle which is a bit unsettling to some people. I prefer to cook mine to 140 degrees when grilling 2" pork chops. After you take them off the grill, the internal temperature will continue to rise to about 145 degrees at which point they are perfect, IMO.
