Three thicknesses (2.54, 1.90 and 1.27 cm) of pork chops were cutl alternately from 20 paired loins of similar quality. Chops were cooked on Farberware grills or in a convection oven to internal temperatures of 60, 70 and 80°C for sensory and objective evaluations. Juiciness, percent moisture and tenderness decreased and cooking losses increased (P < 0.05) as temperature increased for both cooking methods. Pork flavor intensity increased in oven- prepared chops, while no change was observed in grilled chops at each level of increased temperature. Thickness had no effect (P > 0.05) on tenderness, juiciness or total cooking loss of oven-prepared or grilled chops. The thickest chops received the highest (P < 0.05) pork flavor scores.
