This question already has an answer here:

So I didn't realize my oven was broken until 10 hours after I had my pork shoulder in there. I realized it and then cooked it for 16 hours at 220F. What are the risks of eating this after 16 hours of cooking?

    Are you saying that the shoulder sat in a room-temp oven for 10 hours? – logophobe Aug 5 '14 at 4:10
  • @logophobe yes. Maybe even 12 hours at about 90-100F and then cooked. – Josh Mountain Aug 5 '14 at 4:14

    This might be a duplicate, but it looks like we have found a new reason for pre-heating an oven. – Joe Aug 5 '14 at 14:01
