(I'll start by saying I don't have a pit...so no crock pot jokes!) I cooked a pork tenderloin in the crock pot yesterday, and turned it into some great pork barbecue. I put it in containers, and left them sit on the stove to cool. This morning, I realized I forgot to put them in the refridgerator...about 12 hours. Can I assume the pork isn't safe to eat after that long unrefridgerated?
