Don't pull it 'till right before you serve it. You'll be fine. It'll keep at a safe temp in that cooler - if that hairs you out, keep the butt wrapped in foil and in an oven at the lowest temp, but really you're good in the cooler. It'll start drying out once you pull it, so put that off as long as you can, plus the heat retains much better when it's whole. With such a nice long rest, you're gonna have some damn good pulled pork right there.
