    Temperature danger zone is 41-135, you can hold above that no problem. If it's long enough, you pasteurize the meat

    I've said ths before, but it's worth repeating. If you are worried about food safety, let you mother in law try it. If she doesn't get sick, it's good to go.

    Then you always have a recommendation I gave to a fellow member. Is there a neighbor you don’t get along with or a brother in-law you’re on the outs with.

    Thanks, Gents! Very much appreciated!

    Yep, most of the cook was 220-250. It spiked to 270 after I added fuel a little while ago (turned one of my vents the wrong way, but now that's fixed, temp is dropping again, and it's around 260 now. Meat's up to 182, and I think I''m just about out of the stall.

    @Mr.Bones, I love that graphic!

    It’s probably OK. And here is my thinking process.

    1. Internal temperature got to 170, in the “safe” zone.
    2. Cooker temperature fell to 150, so the meat couldn’t have fallen lower than that
    3. Since the cooker was operating at normal temperature (I’m assuming 225-250) it is unlikely any nasty bugs were able to make their way in, and whatever nasties that may have been in the cooker got scorched

    The only thing is that the meat might be drier than usual, because of the double cook.

    At least that is my thinking. Let’s see who else chimes in.

    Especially given the meat got into the 170’s so it should be well past the danger point, I would say no problem with the fairly short drop. Cook on!

    Smoker temp dipped...food still safe?

    Hi Guys,

    I did an overnight cook last night. It's a 5 lb pork butt. At 5am, the meat was in the 170s. When I woke again at 8, both the meat and the pit were in the low 150s. I've added new coals and the meat is back up to 169 now. I'm imagining I'm okeay since it didn't get down below 140, but when I touched the bark, it didn't feel particularly warm, so thought I'd ask some more experienced smokers.

    Thanks ahead!
