I'm going to be smoking a brisket overnight for a 4th of July party tomorrow and am anticipating that it will get done several hours before we plan to eat.  I wanted to keep it warm and then slice when we're ready to eat in the afternoon.  Would it stay warm enough (and be safe to eat) if I foil it, wrap in towels, and put it in a cooler for 4-6 hours?  Or should I just plan on letting it cool down and then reheating in the oven?
