I cooked a batch of venison and stored it in a barrel. A few days later I took it out of the barrel and put it in my jacket. A couple of minutes later I noticed I was overtemping badly and losing health. Checking the venison it still showed ~75C
I checked out some previously cooked venison and chicken and they were also still hot after several days.
I don't know if other items that can be heated demonstrate this same issue.
