I have 10 butts on last night and this morning I got up and my cooker had stopped. The butts where at 100 degrees. I'm not sure how long the cooker had been off but will the butts be ok?

Oh man, now that is a bummer. I know I wouldn't risk serving that to anyone just for the simple fact that you don't know how long they were in the TDZ, and I am guessing it was more than 4 hours.

Yeah I'm not going to serve it but thought about keeping it for myself but I don't think I'm going to do that. Guess throw these out

I wouldn't eat them.

This is a good reason to not 100% rely on your cooker working and should be periodically checked throughout the night.

Cut them open and see if the meat is cooked or still raw. If its cooked i dont see a problem with eating it. Im sure the worry warts and thermometer nazis will have a different point of view though.

This blows a big one, My pellet grill went out one night also. Tossed 20# of butts into the trash.

Sorry to hear, I know it's difficult to throw hard earned money away like that, but it would cost a lot more in medical bills if you got food poisoning which could show up weeks later.

I ate some bbq food from a family member last year and he told me later that day, that his cooker was off for a few hours, I was NOT happy being told after the fact.. I never got sick but I wasn't happy....What kind of cooker do you use?

Just wondering ... would it be safe to fire it up for a hot and fast ? thoughts ?

That's what boiling is for. He should have put them in a crock pot, added a little water at the bottom and went to bed. :heh:
