i threw a butt on around 4:30am ... expecting it to take about 12 hours based on the temps my smoker usually runs ...

i went back to bed ... when i woke up it was running at about 300 degrees and my butt is already up to 185-190.

i have people coming over to eat ... but im still about 5 hours from dinner time. how long can i hold it in the cooler?

Wrap it with suran wrap, then aluminum foil, then a thick towel. Put it in the cooler and expect it to lose about 3-5 degrees per hour depending. You will be safe for 5-6 hours easy. If you need longer you could always set your oven at 150 and put it in there for a couple of hours.

Add---You can also put boiling water in your cooler to warm it up before you put your meat in there to help hold longer to.

As babyhuey says it will carry that long in a "cooler", though I'd still take it a little hotter before I'd pull it off and wrap, (195 - 205).

I don't bother with the saran, (that's just me and not wanting to struggle with getting it off again later), I do double wrap in HD foil though. Wink

And I pre-heat the cooler with a pan of boiling water, surround the foiled butts with towels to remove as much airspace from the cooler as possible.

clarification - the suran suggestion is only to prevent a mess on your towel and cooler, it contains the juices better than foil alone. But, as suggested it is not necassary.

LOL no problem, I just wash the cooler and the towels, though sometimes it's funny as to how good a perfume BBQ pulled pork can be! Wink Laughing Rolling Eyes
