Last night/early morning, I put the pork shoulder in the smoker. Woke up this morning after 7.5 hours and the pork appears to be ahead of my scheduled time. What are my options in regards to keeping it warm until dinner time? How long can I keep it wrapped in the towel, in a cooler before pulling? Any drawback to doing it that way? Should I keep it in the smoker at a low temperature?
Have about 15 more degrees to go before it reaches 200 internal. And planning on having company over to eat in 6-7 hours. Certainly won't take that long to get the temp to 200. What is the best way to keep it warm without ruining it?
