This meat is not safe to serve to a crowd at a church with members that maybe very young or older with health problems you may not have information on.
The only safe thing to do is toss the meat.
Jim, no offense but I do not understand your advice. "The problem is a refrigerator can not cool 8 hot butts safely that are wrapped. The only safe thing to do is toss the meat."
I can't grasp that concept. I think the food would have been fine. I understand "Better safe than sorry" But I do not think this situation called for throwing away $100.00 of meat. JMHO
