Boston Butt pulled pork question
 
Is it a big deal if when the Butt is done if I wait 3, 4 or even 5 hours after it is finished to pulled the pork?

What I have read said wait 1-2 hours before shredding the meat. Would 3-5 hours make a big difference say if I just left it covered in foil?

It does not make a difference if you pull it while it is hot. The boston butt will remain hot for more than 6 hours if you wrap it tight in foil and then put it in a cooler and cover in towels.

For the 3 pork butts I did for New Years, they finished about 1pm and I needed to keep them warm till I pulled them at 6:30pm. The pork butts were still very hot that I couldn't pull them with my bare hands and still had to use the pvc gloves that I have.

Yep, they can sit in a warmed cooler, cambro, even a 180F oven for hours, then you pull and serve when you want. Four hours is no issue at all, keep them wrapped though.

^ +1 .....

As Aawa said, I too have gone over 5 hours wrapped in foil packed in an insulated cooler covered with towels and / or newspapers.

Still too hot to pull by hand.

If you are smoking butts the day before and want to eat it the next day, are you better off keeping it wrapped and pulling it the second day or pulling it the first day and just reheating it?

Double foil and place in a cooler just big enough for the Butt, then pack remaining air space with towels. I have held them this way for over four hours in the past. They will come out to hot to touch!
