Pork Butt is done already and I'm not eating til 6!!!

Title says it all.  Will the butt be ok in the cooler for 3.5-4 hours?  My smoker did run a little hotter than i usually do.  I try to keep it at 235.  My smoker was running around 245 the entire time but the 10.5 lbs butt only took 8 hours??? whats up with that?

It'll likely still be almost too hot to touch at 6 if you wrap it well and your cooler is preheated with boiling water. As for the speedy smoke, it just happens sometimes.

Yep, double wrap that puppy and cooler it with some towels until dinner time. It will be great!

I would double check whatever you are using for chamber temp. I'm betting you were running 300 plus.

Double wrap it in foil and then in a couple of towels and into an empty ice chest all is well.

If you have a good cooler, I only use 5-7 day coolers there is no need for even towels. 4 hours later you'll still be hard pressed to pull with bare hands. The longer butts rest the better.

If you let a pork butt rest in a well insulated cooler wrapped in foil and towels for 4-6 hours it will be about as perfect as you can get it.....even if there was an error in your cooking. A nice long rest is a very good thing.....
