Trouble with my Butt (Boston, that is)
I put an 8 pound Boston Butt on yesterday morning at 8:00. It was roughly around 200 degrees until I went to bed at 11:00. Sometime during the night, the fire went out. When I woke this morning at 8:00 the dome and the butt were both about 110 degrees. (The butt was about 128 degrees when I went to bed.[p]I've restarted the fire and now have the dome at 325 degrees and the butt at 154 degrees (10:30 am). Two questions:[p]1. Do I have to worry about the meat being spoiled?
2. If not, what now? My plan is to just let it run at 300 degrees until the butt is at 200 degrees and then take it off and pull it and eat it.[p]Comments about both food safety and the plan for the rest of the cooking cycle (assuming no food safety problems) are sincerely solicited.[p]Thank you
