My wife left 15 pounds of (frozen) chicken wings out over night. When I went downstairs I noticed the bag and immediately grabbed my thermapen. The top few wings were at about ~44 degrees, everything else was between 30-38, with ice still at the bottom of the bag. The house is about 72 degrees.
Given that I don't know how long the wings had sat above 40 degrees (2 hours is the max guideline)-- thoughts? My inclination is that they couldn't be above 40 degrees for that long considering they were just hitting 44, and only a few wings, but maybe that's just crazy talk.
