    I’m in the toss them camp. Likely no harm will come, but. Why risk health over a silly rack of ribs,

    All good stuff. Some of my research said you could not smell or taste the toxins, so I think erring on the safe side is always good. See, if I died from eating them, you would never have known!

    I started an answer saying “toss” then realized you had them in foil and could not have gone more than an hour without chips because of your method. Given that, I would keep them and reheat uncovered in the smoker. My wife might answer otherwise.

    Yeah. But aren't you a repairman for some of us who chose wrong????😀

    For a time I was a repairman for some who survived.

    One of my more important "rules of life" is:

    If I have to ask myself, "Gee, should I really be doing this", the answer, at least the safe one is just about always no. But that's just me.

    Since at max they were left not cooking for less than 2 hours, I think you are okay to eat especially since the smoker temp did not fall to zero immediately. The fact that you wrapped would also preserve temps somewhat. I would cook to finish and add sauce.

    OK, here's what I found.

    While heat will kill the bacteria, the staph bacterium may have made toxins which will not be killed off with heat.

    Thank you again.

    Thanks, guys. All interesting info.

    I could easily toss them, and perhaps I will. At the same time, I think this is a great learning experience.

    Thank Meathead for suggesting a cook log. I just checked. They went in, from fridge to smoker at 220F at 12:45. Not quite 3 hours later (15:30) I foil wrapped and put them back in. Somewhere between then and 17:15 (when I checked back) the fire went out.

    Does info this help? For learning purposes.

    I think what everyone was focused on was the line about "everything had cooled down."

    Re-reading it, I think you are saying sometime in the middle of the 2 hours wrapped part of the cook, the cooker shut down and didn't continue cooking. So you have at most 2 hours of no heat being applied.

    Assuming the meat was still warm and was cooked thoroughly when you went to wrap it, I think you are fine continuing to cook it through. Have no idea what a par-cook and then refrigerate and continue to cook will do as far as taste/texture though but it can't hurt to try.

    To the extent the ribs cooled down enough to bring it into the danger zone, that's a different story and I'd toss them... same thing if I wasn't certain that they were cooked through. If its a guessing game I wouldn't risk it for a rack of ribs

Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.
