I put a pair of 5.5 lb butts (4 inches of space between them) in last night at 2 am @250
. At 7am the internal temp was 139 (it is 159 now). It is my understanding the safety zone is "four hours between 40 and 140 degrees".
I'm not sure the exact temp of my fridge but I am assuming is close to 40.
So, even though it was in the egg, did it spend too much time in the danger zone?
