How long is it still safe to eat cooked chicken left out?

I cooked some chicken on the barbecue last evening and brought it inside.  Worrying about flies or whatever I put it in the microwave temporarily to cool down while I ate the chicken for the evening while the remainder was for the next day.

TV on and doing other things I forgot it.  It sat in the microwave from 7pm to 1am.  It was room temperature, about 75 degrees for that time.

It really is hard for me to toss away expensive organic chicken so I thought I’d do an experiment for the sake of survival training.

First I looked online for guidelines.  2 hours is apparently the rule by the USDA for safe handling so it should go in the trash can.  But I’m not a restaurant and I am not asking anyone else to try it.  So what to do.

Lots of other people asked the same question and many said they had done the same with no problem up to 9 hours in some cases.  If if was covered it might be safer, maybe.

It was smoked on the barbie and we know that smoking all kinds of things has a preservative value of its own.  I put it in the fridge at 1 a.m.

9:30 am  next morning – I just popped a portion of it in the microwave and intend to give it a try.  Worst case If I see  any ill effects I’ll eat a Pepto tablet to help suck up the toxins.

I’ll let you know.  It is my breakfast   Meat? Yes, I know.  It is a habit.  I stay away from big carbs from breakfast.  Protein, fat, vegetables, and some carbs as a follow on.

9:45  YUMMY!!! I hope

Down it goes.

Noon:  No issues yet

Two PM.   No issues and I have more chicken yet since I split it up into smaller amounts.

2:30 I’m eating some more for lunch and this includes a drumstick along with a breast fillet.

3:15pm No problems yet.

10:00 pm No problems.

Next Day  No problems.

I suspect the smoked chicken gave it some more staying power than if I had just cooked it in the microwave.  For me this was enlightening in that tossing food is not necessarily required depending on the circumstances.  In this case barbecue smoked chicken does fairly well.

Disclaimer: I’m not food expert so I recommend you follow normal food safety rules and if you don’t then you do so at your own risk.

My point here is that in desperate circumstances I know I have more options for food lasting without refrigeration.  Still, I wouldn’t do this as a standard practice but consider it only under extraordinary circumstances.

Midwest AK Scope Mount

I’ve tried a number of different scope mounts for the AK and this is the best I’ve come across so far.   Here you see it mounted on an AK-74.

If you notice the low positioning over the cover it gives you perfect alignment.  This thing is solid.

The rail is excellent 1913 mil-spec.

It is adjustable but you need to read the directions.  It is not obvious as to how it works but it works easily once you know the trick that was easily explained in the instructions.

Germany Lost

If you wonder how it looks to see a country still going through the death rattle of multicultural suicide take a look at Germany and here are some links to confirm that finally now some of the  somnolent horde known as Das Volk are showing a fluttering of the eyes.

If you can imagine their minds considering and pondering this thought, “Can this be true, are we really being attacked by those loving guests and new Germans.”  Yes, oh yes.  It is coming dear friends in Socialist Paradise and Multicultural haven of diversity.

I expect to see what we haven’t seen in Europe in almost 70 years and isn’t good newsreel footage what we all live to see as long as we’re not part of the show.

German fear growing

Germany on Edge

Just hug the new arrivals and show that you care and they’ll think better of you and maybe not strap on or go on a truck joyride.

Ansbach, denied asylum seeker goes postal or whatever they call it in Europe. He was an ISIS guy.

He was setting off Diversity Fireworks.  Video of explanation.

Who needs a ticket when you’re out to punch your ticket.

He was just showing some good cheer to his hosts before the sendoff.

So, dear friends.  What does this mean for the rest of us.

Shut the borders and stop taking in future threats, but that won’t likely happen unless Mr. T wins.

Next, keep training.  Do whatever it takes to ramp up your skills in the area of firearms handling including home defense and concealed carry.

Finally, stay informed because simply knowing the threat and circumstances around you is an edge.  Remember, we live for information and the lack of it can be fatal on an individual basis as well as for a culture.  You are watching a culture die in Europe simply from the intentional disinformation indoctrination accomplished over the past 50 years.

Repeat after me.  Diversity is our Strength.

Guns and Living Safely

Buy more guns and live with more safety.
Get a gun and train and always carry.  That is the message of this article and it proves again that relying on protectors other than yourself is a foolish proposition.

Officer shoots due to presence of a gun.
Let’s see how an investigation proves out what this article claims.  Any cop now has to know that an unjustified shooting is a very dangerous thing to do when it comes to their own freedom.

Don’t worry about the law

@Unless you’re an average citizen.

This is the message we received today from a clearly compromised FBI.

The same rules applied to someone of lesser position seem to justify prosecution.

A different set of rules for our betters.

The truth is that we are all at risk of punishment for minor infractions that don’t apply to special groups such as illegals.  You try using a fake ID and see how easy they go on you.  If you came here illegally such a violation won’t even be considered a problem.  The IRS is okay with fake social security numbers from illegals.

Government officials routinely get a free pass on infractions that might land you and me in jail.  It all depends on who you know and how important your friends are.

What to know:  We are in a post constitutional period where the old rules no longer apply.  The leader of our country routinely ignores the constitution and makes regular decrees that in the past would have resulted in impeachment.

The weapons of government are applied against citizens who dare to disagree.  So take note and if you publicly disagree don’t be surprised if you fall under the glare of a malevolent government.

Vote like it matters just to keep your conscience clear if times get sporty and it becomes necessary to resist when all other options are exhausted. 

Meanwhile, live life as if it might end tomorrow.

Prepping for Apocalypse

It can get you killed according to Zerogov.

He has a point and it relates to my philosophy of focusing on what is common rather than all risks.

On that basis it is better to work on handgun skills rather than 600 yard head shots.

It is better to focus on a vehicle that will get you 25mpg rather than a rock climber for your bugout that gets 8mpg.

As for prepping for survival, I’d add that focusing on your health by exercising and having some recreational activity that you can enjoy and pass the time with sure beats working on squad tactics.

Armchair warriors with all the latest ninja gear are often the guys that never conceal carry even though they live in a state where it is legal.  They may never make it to the end of the world as we know it if they take a curb sandwich by local thugs because they didn’t work on daily risk.

Pandemic Watch: Gates Foundation Warns of High Pandemic Risk

Gates Foundation warns of high Pandemic risk due to urbanization.
Risk comes from everything but unfettered travel combined with increasing population densities of urbanization virtually ensures that any new pathogen can spread with lightening speed among the world population.  Only those less plugged into the high speed modern life of cities and suburban congregations may find themselves less at risk.

On that basis, I’d make an effort to reduce your exposure footprint by joining the rural community of your choice that still allows you to create a life and earn an income.

10 new Zika Cases in Florida
Travel related they say.  Well, how about reducing travel from places loaded with Zika.  Not gonna happen.

Get your bugout location in place or just move to where your risk is lower.

Bringing Hate to America

MS-13  imported and let loose on Americans
The hate seems to start with our rulers that don’t have any interest in protecting Americans and are allowing horrific crimes to be committed by aliens.

170k Illegal convicts not deported 
Roaming the streets and being released onto the streets to harm Americans.

Record number of Syrian Refugees allowed into USA
This won’t be a problem.  Right.  Nothing to see here.  Move on.  What a mess.

American Flags vandalized 

Mexican National deported 6 times kills in Oregon 

Where to live.  It’s hard to say since our dear leaders are intent on spreading the pain around as well as the wealth.  Here’s an idea.  Choosing a place with a low livability rating.  A short list of free services comes to mind since the Feds won’t want to send a family of freeloaders into a working area.  How about West Virginia. 

You’ll hear from some that WV is very high on the governmental welfare wagon, but that probably comprises lots of disability and social security checks, and not as much section 8 and other generous programs.

Benefits of living there.

Lowest livability rating in the USA.  That should mean fewer aliens coming to town.

Look away, West Virginia 
Population loss every census.

 Sounds like my kinda place.  No offense intended to West Virginians.  I have nothing but good things to relate about my travels there.  Nice people.

This is why having cash in place while reducing exposure to Real Estate debt probably makes sense.  The lies about the economy in the MSM, (Mainstream Media), are so obvious now, especially employment.
