How long should you leave raw meat out of the fridge before you eat it?

You pose the question as if it's a necessary thing to do, leaving meat out.

It's entirely optional and I'm not sure you are going to get a good answer. I leave mine out long enough to warm up a bit and maybe dry out a little if freshly sliced.

I probably wouldn't feel comfortable leaving red meat out for more than 12 hours before eating it, at this point. If it were sliced thin and dry/drying, though, much longer would be fine to me. Chicken and fish would be allowed less time.

Temperature humidity cut and type of meat are going to change things relatively drastically. Are you wondering about taste, safety or what?
