Fire Died on Pork Butt

  1. Put on a 7.5 lb pork butt last night. When I fell asleep at 1 am the meat temp was about 130 and the fire was still burning 225 steady. Woke up at 7 am, fire's dead and meat temp was 104 degrees. Pretty sure it hit 140 before the fire died. It's a loss, though, right?

    That's a tough one. Probably OK if it hit 140, but if someone gets sick you are a villain.
