Temp when out of the cooler was 130? Any idea how long it had been below 135?

Guessing is ok for home use, but at an event away from home there should be no guessing.

Also, the pork for your family...commercial rules are cut and dry on this (home use you can use your own judgement). Just remember that when feeding others (not your own family) once the temp falls into the danger zone for four hours you are not allowed to heat the food back up for use. Once the four hour mark is hit the food must be thrown away. What you did is for your family so it's ok...just don't become complacent with this method and think it's ok to do for the's not.

It's fun cooking for a crowd isn't it? Good job.
