Default To Toss or Not To Toss This Brisket

I put a brisket on my WSM last night around 10, had a few and went to bed at 2 am while the smoker was cruising at around 250 with the assistance of my Pitmaster IQ 110. But as I went to bed, perhaps aided by the beverages I consumed, I turned off the power strip that was juicing the IQ 110.

When I woke up this morning at 8, the WSM was at 79 and the internal temp of the brisket was at 110. I don't know what it was when I went to bed. It was freezing last night, in the 20s.

Do I toss or not toss? Of course I invited half the neighborhood to come over this afternoon to feast on brisket. I'd prefer to serve it, but obviously do not want to get everyone sick.

Personally, I wouldn't toss it, but I wouldn't serve it to the neighborhood either.

You'll get a wide range of opinions of this, so you'll ultimately have to decide what you are comfortable with.

Since you have no idea how long it was in the dander zone, I would toss it and go buy something else to cook for the neighbors. You may be able to get another brisket or a couple of butts and do a hot and fast cook in time. Meat is cheap compared to doctors.

In this case, I think I would feed it to the cats.

I'd toss it. Grab something else and go hot & fast (275-325 degrees)

No right answer except for the one you are comfortable with. The fact that you asked means that you are worried. I would not throw it away, but that is just me. I'd be making some chili (all for myself of course since I wouldn't let anyone else eat it).

Thanks for the opinions, folks. I'm tossing it and heading to the grocery store for some spare ribs and chicken wings.

Good idea. Just so you know you could probably cook a brisket hot n fast the same time spare ribs would could. Good luck!

Yep, good choice. I wouldn't take the chance, but then again I'm not much of a risk taker either.

Something I don't understand. Let's say the brisket had developed something by staying too long between 40 - 140. Doesn't cooking it above 140 destroy the bug? For instance, I believe Salmonella is killed by heating it to 131f.
