Foiling question

Sorry in advance since I'm sure this has been posted roughly 1000 times but I'm rushing around and have plans to have food on the table at 6. I pulled my butt off of the smoker at 205 and was curious to know how long I can leave this in the cooler and wrapped for. I want to pull this as close to 6 as possible and not reheat it. 

Thanks again guys!

When well insulated, they will hold heat for several hours. Just foil tight, cover with towels, and keep the cooler closed. It's all good my friend.

After 5 hours you're pushing it when I kept them in the cooler.

Foil tightly and place it on a bed of towels in the cooler.  Stick a probe in it and run the wire to the outside of the cooler.  Cover with more towels and slam the lid.  Grab a cold beer and monitor the internal meat temp at your leisure.

Good luck and enjoy!
