    Long story short I had a 7 pound but go a lot quicker then expected. My 4 pound ones take anywhere from 13-14 hours, this one took 10 so it threw off the time table. How long can you rest it in a cooler wrapped in foil and a towel? It is 8:30 and it will not be enjoyed until around 4:00.

    You should be fine, as a matter of fact you should be real fine!  Just keep it tightly wrapped in the foil and a few towels with the ice chest.

    Perfect! Thanks for the quick reply! It is at 195 now so I will remove at 205. I figured it would be fine but I have never rested this long! Thanks

    Remember the temp will continue to rise once you put it in the ice chest.  If you are looking at a final temp of 205 you may want to pull it from the smoker a bit early.
