I put in a 9 pound Boston Butt into my Masterbuilt smoker last night at 12am with temperature at 205F. Then I went to bed. When I checked at 7am this morning, the Masterbuilt showed it was trying to heat. Internal chamber temp was 69F. Heating unit was not on. Internal pork temp was ~140F. I brought in the pork, wrapped in foil and put in oven at 220F.
Does this sound ok? I considered throwing out the pork, but wasn't sure since the internal temp was 140F - it sounded safe enough.
