Hello All, I need some advice ASAP. Smoked an 11 lb pork butt last eve. didn't pull meat. wrapped in foil, put in plastic pan, wrapped in trash bag. Put all into a small refrigerator that apparently didn't get very cold. put in the frig at 2am, taken out of frig at 10:45am this morning and meat registers 96 degrees... HELP? Are we ok to reheat in oven and pull meat and serve today?

You should be ok since you completed the cook and wrapped it hot maintaining a sterile surface. It is very unlikely any bacteria got on the meat. Reheat, wrapped at 325°F. Once the IT gets to 130, you can unwrap to set the Bark and finish reheating to <150 and pull it...JJ
