    Hey all- I am making a fatty to take to a dinner this weekend and want to smoke ahead of time and transport to the dinner in a pre-heated cast iron pan in a Hot/Cold cooler bag. What temp do you think I should pull it to avoid it over cooking on the 40 min rest that it will get on the trip there?

    The fatty will be pork/ chicken with spinach and feta cheese in a bacon wrap.

    Thanks in advance for any input!

    I have transported some before . I don't remember the internal temp I did ...........but I smoked for 2 hrs at 250 exact then wrapped in foil doubled up and stuck in a cooler with some towells an hour later it was still perfect temp to eat and juicey as can be.

    I would pull it at 160 and wrap it in foil and put it in a cooler with towels and it should still be hot when you arrive at your destination.

    Thanks for the input guys. Hey whta do you think about adding some kalamata olives to those ingredients? Think that would be too strong?

    I would also say that you should pull it about 160° also and then you can like Rbranstner said and put it in a dry cooloer wrapped in towels or you can pt it in your cast iron pan but the cooler method is tried an tested true. Just make sure you have the cooler packed with towels.
    PS: Don't you your best towels for hey will be messed up. I have towels just for the cooler. Then you don't have to us ea real big cooloer either.

    This is so true. If only I had thought about this before my first smoke...Could have saved a wife blowup!!
