How long ham can sit in foil?

    I smoked an 11lb ham shank today (bone in) and finished about 2 hours ago. I wrapped it in a bunch of foil and towels and put it in the cooler. I plan on taking it home to easter dinner tomorrow and reheating it in the oven starting at about 10:30am CST (14 hours from now) for lunch about 12:30.

    My question is should I leave it in the cooler all night or will that be hygenically a problem? Do I leave it in there or just put it in the fridge to fully cool and then throw it in the cooler for the trip home tomorrow?

    Thanks everyone,
    Happy Easter!

    I'm not an expert on ham, but 16 hours sounds like too much time for it to stay at the desired temps....Some1 who knows for sure will be right along , i'm sure... Happy Easter to you as well [​IMG]
