Resting butts in the smoker

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Just wondering if anyone ever rests their butts in the smoker? Lately I've been going no foil on my butts for the bark which turns out great but when I wrap it to rest it does soften it some. That's why I was thinking I could rest in the smoker without wrapping. My concern would be at what temp to put the smoker or just keep it off and would you think it could dry out resting in there?

Also forgot to mention the idea of resting in butcher paper. I've heard about people doing this never tried it though. Supposedly doesn't soften bark like foil.

bags, morning.... resting in the smoker at 160 ish is no different than sitting in a buffet line under the lights... Keep the meat temp above 140 and it should be fine....  Dave
