I am smoking 2 butts tomorrow for lunch on Sunday at around 1. My son is being baptized Sunday morning. So I am planning on getting the butts on by noon on Saturday I hope, I don't foil...they can go as long as they need as long as they are done by 9am on Sunday! Im figuring about 16 hours is about normal for 9-10 pounders for me. Now as to the question:
If they finish sometime around 4am as planned I plan to just rest until morning. Around 9 I would pull them and either into an electric roaster or foil pans. Which would be best to keep moist? I was thinking foil pans with the drippings tightly sealed and in the oven on 200 until we eat? Or would a roaster be the better option? Seems like I would get a better seal with the foil pans. I am worried as it could be up to 4 hours staying warm. I could leave resting in cooler until closer to 10 but I don't know how long I can keep them in the cooler and they wills tay hot. I have never rested for more than 4 hours or so.
