    If you foil it now and put it in a cooler wrapped up it's gonna push on up towards 200 and you'll be fine. You'd be fine right where it's at in my opinion. I'd pull it before I'd let it sit for two more hours.

    You can foil it now if you want. I would throw it in the cooler and then pull it when you get back. It will still be plenty hot.

    Thats what I would do. I have rested PP for 3 or more hours and it was still too hot to pull without gloves! I guess it depends on the quality of cooler, foil, meat...etc.

    The longest I've rested a butt before pulling is a couple of hours, but I'm sure I've read threads here of folks wrappin' them in a towel and putting them a cooler for much longer than that. Perhaps as long as 4-5 hours.
