Electric smoker went out...
I started a pork butt last night. I smoked it for about four hours in my offset smoker but at 1 am I was ready to sleep. I transferred the butt to my Bradley smoker to finish off the cooking process. Sometime while I slept the power went out! Are you kidding me?

When I woke up at 7am the internal temp of the butt dropped to 85 degrees from the 114 degrees when it was originally placed in the electric smoker. I restarted the electric smoker and it is cooking away now.

Will this butt be safe to eat if I continue cooking it off to 190 degrees plus? Has anyone else had this happen to them? If it is safe will it even be edible, texture wise, etc.?

<edit> I think I am going to scrap the butt, too much time in the danger temp zone. Besides its not like it is an expensive cut of meat.
