Default How long can a fresh brisket last in a cooler?

Just pulled a brisket off the cooker. Wrapped in butcher paper and a towel and put in a cooler, how long can I keep it there before I need to refrigerate? Going to have it for lunch tomorrow

If its tmrw probably fridge it. Think 40-140 for food safety and it will dip under the 140 pretty soon.

Yep. If the cooler was pre-heated and stuffed with towels you could probably go 5 hours, but any longer is taking a risk.
