Would you eat a hog that was out overnight last night? It was 35 degrees last night and she was in shade.

I wouldn't but I'm far from an expert on the subject so take that with a grain of salt...

35 degrees the meat should be fine but with that said I wouldn't if it was gut shot or you have second thoughts about it. 35 degrees overnight in the shade this morning shouldn't be a problem.

No I would not. Internal temp was nearly 100 degrees and releasing internal gases. Even at 35 degrees that hog did not cool down internally. Would you get sick, maybe not. Grind it all up for sausage and find out.

I agree. I have a relative who used to be a health inspector in another state. She said one of the problems she often encountered was restaurants that cooked a large pot of beans and then put the entire pot into their refrigerator. When she found something like this she would get the owner/manager and then put a thermometer into the middle of the pot. Even though the pot had been in the refrigerator for several hours, the middle if it was usually still warm and a good home for bacteria. A hog at 35 degrees would be much the same.

If it were 20 degrees out, I might take the leg quarters if it were a smaller hog.

I have recovered a deer under similar conditions, and ate it. I think it would be OK. If nothing else, you could remove the back straps. Think of this, how much of the meat harvested is touching the internal organs/guts where the heat is? I would not take any rib meat, or tender loins.

Well he took the hind quarters and backstraps. Hope it was ok. Thanks for all the responses.
