:ohmy: Can't believe it - left out a 7 pound butt all night. It was slow smoked (on the egg of course) - we'd wrapped it and put it in the 'fridge (did 2 at the same time over the weekend). My wife got it out in case the meat I'd already pulled wasn't enough - she heated it in the oven (still whole.) We didn't need it so we left it to cool then absent mindedly went off to be without storing it.
And I know the food rules.....
BUT - I know smoke preserves, and it is about 68 in my house at night - I put it back in the 'fridge at 4:45 AM - so it was out from 6 PM til 4:45 AM.
Do you think it's a goner? Or did the smoke save me?
