dh asked what happens when meat reaches the internal temp and you continue to cook it. I said when it reaches that temp, it's well done and after that it will burn up. I said it can only get so hot before it dries up and burns.

I would think the same thing as you. I guess I don't know for sure, though.

After it reaches the desired temp and it continues to cook, it continues getting hotter and then the moisture cooks out of it and it dries out and becomes overcooked. It depends on what food it is and the size of the food how long that takes. What was he disagreeing with?

He thinks that meat will just continue getting hotter after it reaches 160-180. I say that there is no way that meat will reach the boiling point of 220.

We're talking about burgers, turkey, roast, butterfly pork chops, ham.

Yep, it'll get too dried out and tough and not taste good.

 Cook him two hamburgers side by side, take one off when it's done, then let the other keep cooking. Let him do a taste test. I think that will be the end of the discussion. lol
