Default Bought a boston butt - don't think it was done.

It's already been in my fridge as I had to just drop it off and go, so
I can't pop it in the oven to finish it. *Should I just throw it out?



Before I'd throw it away I'd cut it in half and heat it on a grill, or
a griddle with the middle closest to the heat source.
How were you going to reheat it? Many times now pork is done while
still pink inside., and the gelatinous matter may be fat from the
roast. Let us know what you decide. I've been married & cooking for
44 years and haven't poisoned us yet.
