Botulism and face thuds… very weird guy.
I guess you don't understand... Botulism is the deadliest bacteria known to man/woman...

Does cooking kill Cl. botulinum and its toxin?
Normal thorough cooking (pasteurisation: 70°C 158F 2min or equivalent) will kill Cl.botulinum bacteria but not its spores. To kill the spores of Cl.botulinum a sterilisation process equivalent to 121°C 250F for 3 min is required. The botulinum toxin itself is inactivated (denatured) rapidly at temperatures greater than 80°C 178F

Great, cooking at 250f for several hours will be ok then. Seems like I understood.
But I’ll be sure to let all the people smoking at 225f around the world know your concerns.
