Ok now things are getting weird, that's my home town 
I didnt find the word guesstimate offensive. But I can see how some chefs would.
Me too!
Who knew people had such strong opinions about thermometers. I didn't. Whether you're a poker or a stabbed its all good. Keep calm and carry on. Peace.
I don't understand your question. Are you trying to make stock?
I would agree with this as opposed to what @French Fries said.  I don't use a thermometer for steaks, chops and chicken but I do use it for large roasts.  You can't use a touch test on a roast beef.  But while you're learning to touch and fee the doneness of a chop it's ok to use a thermometer.   I used to have a very good sense of direction.  Now if I go somewhere without my GPS I'm lost.  So I get it, but using all senses is always good.
 Indeed lol
@SunshineRivera the method you used in your first post is fine, I do this all the time because loin chops are pretty dry even if you brine them and don't overcook them. I sear the pork chops on both sides and remove from the pan. Then I make a sauce in the pan and add the chops back in to cook. Cook to 150 internal. I love chops this way, seared and smothered.
I love chili!  I use this recipe and it's great.  I too go very easy on the heat so my little one can eat it. I add chopped green bell pepper to this, can't go without.
