If it was not chilled, it has probably grown bacteria. cooked food, or any food left at room temp has about a 2 hour window for bacteria to grow. even in the fridge the bacteria doesn't stop growing, it's just slowed in it's growth. having been in hospital infection control for a while, I'd say, don't take chances, dispose of it and consider it lesson learned.

I always judge by whether it's worth being up all night with an upset stomach and cramps. It never is.

Okay, so you have a roast worth about , what? Let's say $10.00. If you throw it away you lose that. If you eat the roast you save the $10.00 but you take the risk of having a hospital bill worth what? Let's say $3000.00. Which risk would you rather take?

I don't see you mentioning where you live or what your kitchen is like. When I lived in Hawaii and Florida? No way. Here? You can hang meat in my pantry (not kidding, peanut and olive oil solidify in the winter). Here, I wouldn't think twice about eating it. In other places, no way.

I'm kind of che... thrifty.

Cooking it again does NOT make it safe to eat!!

This is old of course and it doesn't really matter. But pork depending on how it is cooked could be very forgiven. If it was well done roast, I bet it was just fine seating overnight, even if it is 70 deg in the house.

On hollidays, my inlaws leave leftover roasts, and even turkeys out over night and serve them the next day on cold plates. I would never do it, but everybody there seems to get on fine. It is a colder farm house and the temp does drop quite a bit over night due to the cookstove fire being very low, but still. It makes me a bit cautious to eat the stuff.

It would definitely NOT be safe to eat sitting out all night at 70 degrees.
