The most I have held is 8 hours in a good cooler with towels and all. When I pulled them they were still at 165 IT.

If you have access to an oven or slow cooker at any point you can stick them in that at low heat with some apple juice and a little vinegar and it will stay warm enough not to make people sick. I would keep an eye on it though.


Good Luck,

The cooleer works well , you might try heating the cooler with boiling water to extend the heating of the cooler . The meat will continue cooking some , but problem , Butts are forgiving .
When arrived , place in Crock pots. Even if they doo cool abit , they will still keep for se eral more hours.

Have fun and . . .
