Brand new to the site, been using the search function all night though. Need some advice.
I won a Masterbuilt electric smoker from work and fired it up last night. Did the seasoning, and everything went smooth. Around 2:30AM I put a 10lb pork but at 230 degrees on. Went to sleep but set alarm for 3 hours. When I got up, the smoker had shut off at some point. No idea when! Meat was warm to the touch, the smoker said it was 86 degrees inside, so I immediately fired it back up. Been running strong at 230 degrees since with no issues.
My question, is the meat possibly bad? I have no idea how long it was off in that 3 hour time frame. Outside temp was mid 50s last night. Should I throw it out or is it ok?
Many thanks in advance for your help here!
