I cooked a small boneless smoked ham after wrapping in foil about 2 hours and forgot and left it in the oven for about 12 hours after turning off the oven. Then I put it in fridge. Is it safe to eat?

Perishable food left at room temperature (such as a turned off oven) for more than about 2 hours should be discarded. The ham has well exceeded that time.
