  • I would say it's okay. As long as it's cooked all the way through, the hour and a half shouldn't hurt. The foil probably kept it a little cool anyways.

    Can't be any worse than when you're shopping and have everything in the buggy for 2hours and the trip home, right?

  • 2 hours... That's how long you have until bacteria starts to grow.
