help with a timing question on a butt

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I have a 10 pound butt that has been chugging along since early this morning and looking great so far.  However, I am trying to time things right as there is a lot going on today.  I am looking to serve our softball team tonight at a 7 :00 pm get together.  Here is the question.  I am shooting to hit 205 degrees and have it in the cooler to rest by 4:30-5:00, but the way things are looking, I may be there a bit sooner.  I will be basically unavailable from 5:30-7 pm tonight.   Question- if the meat is done sooner, should I pull it early and keep it warm in a roaster til we eat, or would it be better to just keep foiled, wrapped, and in the cooler then do a qick pull right before serving time at 7:00??  Any other suggestions??


Also, I am planning on doing a batch of Dutch's beans as well.  If I get them smoked and cooked up, can they sit in a crock pot for 1-2 hours without affecting anything? 


Thanks for any help guys.

Finish it and wrap in towels, put it in the cooler and it will hold 4+ hours easily...JJ

I've kept them in a cooler for over 6 hours & they were still too hot to pull without gloves.

They will stay hot for hours in a cooler.
