I know there are lots of existing threads about this but I couldn’t find one with a similar fact pattern. Put two 8lbs butts on the smoker at 11pm, done temp was 250. Went to bed around 12:30, dome temp was holding stable. Got up at 6:30, fire was just a couple embers and dome temp had dropped to around 110. At that time the internal temp of the meat was 155 and temp near the surface was 135-145. Stoked the fire back up to 275 and haven’t taken the meat off. Would you press on or toss it?

Side note- it got very windy last night which I suspect caused the problem with my fire.
It's safe unless you injected the heck out of it.

Here's a good read:
