    Don't make the pork gods angry. Trash it and take a long hard look at yourself in the mirror. You failed as a man.

Fire started and temp stable at 240. Put 9.5lb Pork Shoulder on at 10:30pm. Check temp at 1:30am and it was stable, life was good. At 9 am this morning the temp dial read 0. 


The pork was not injected, and no probe was stuck in to the meat to check the temperature. Removed the meat, restarted the fire, and now stable at 250. 


Not self loathing that I didnt check this early, I am concerned that I fell in to the emphamis danger zone. Do I charge ahead or trash it and rethink dinner tonight.

It's fine....   whole muscle is considered sterile on the inside...  The outer surface was exposed to high temp to kill any surface bacteria.....    You are good to go......
