My timing is off and I could use some advice on how to proceed...
I started a 7lb butt yesterday at 4:00. It got to 140 by 9:00 and I foiled it and moved it to the oven. At 2:00 am it was 205 so I moved it to a towel-lined cooler. By 7:20 it had hit 163. I estimate that at 10:30 AM butt will cool to 140. The problem is that the Father's Day gathering doesn't eat until 3:00 PM.
What is the best way to bridge the 4.5 hour gap?
A. Pull and load crock pot
B. Pull, put in fridge and re-heat
C. Load foiled butt in crock pot and pull and finish right before eating
D. Something I haven't thought of but you would be glad to share
Thanks in advance for the advice.
