    I have my thread here:

    My gut says based on this, it should be fine.  I didn't think about probing temp until ~3.5-4hrs.  It was @ 135* then.  Thoughts on potential danger??

    Looks like you had it at proper cooking temps so i don't think stabbing it after 3+ hours will hurt. Good lookin brisky there... Now you need to do a packer so youl have the point for burnt ends..

    Maybe I'm missing something---Everything looks fine to me.

    I think you're asking "Since it was only at 135˚ when you probed it at 3.5-4 hours, is it still OK?"

    If that is your question, the answer is "Yes--that is great!" ----It also shows how close you would have come to not getting it through the danger zone, if you would have injected it or probed it before you started.

    Since you didn't probe it until 3.5-4 hours, that 40˚ to 140˚ in 4 hours doesn't pertain to you. All you have to do is complete it to the temp you want, like you have been doing since.
