I grew up in the same kind of house as you .

I like mine juicy, slightly pink on the inside if it's a roast or chops.

I like it dry, and cooked longer than well done due to my paranoia of getting sick.  
 

it is literally next to impossible to get trichinosis anymore. pork is safe to eat at less than well done status, just fyi.



This is generally true, but it's important to know the one exception to that and that is "organic" or "anti-biotic free" pork.  The trichinosis is under control because of the use of anti-biotics in the feed.  Trichinosis has been found in pork from animals not given anti-biotics.

which is why meat is something i am fairly adamant about not buying organic on, unless I know where its coming from and have seen where the pigs live etc.

Organic pork is supposed to be one of the meats most likely to benefit in flavor and texture from organic/non-organic processes.

I've never tried organic pork though, but I want to, just to see a difference.

you just have to be more careful with it.

I eat my dad's homegrown pork. Its amazing, and he keeps his pigs antibiotic free, but I also know where he raises them and have helped keep them clean etc.

I haven't found organic meats to takes any better than non-organic, however there are some older breeds of pig, such as Berkshire, which have a much better taste than standard supermarket pork.  It's because they have more marbling in the meat; more fat, therefore more flavor.

I'm not nearly as much of a stickler for how my pork is cooked than I am for steak (I'll eat medium-rare beef begrudgingly and refuse to eat anything cooked more). As long as it's crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside I'm fine; medium to medium rare is usually fine.

Pork? Always full done.

Chicken and pork are disgusting if not baked well.

For beef steak it's different story.
