That is what i figured, thanks for your post. :)

My brother just did one. He smoked it to 175, then cooled it down to 40 in his freezer then put in fridge. Next day of party he put it in his crock pot in morning and by after noon it was perfect.

What we usual do is we save some of the juices left over from then pan/foil and we stick it in a slow cooker. It taste like if you just took it off of the smoker. We sorta do what ddweatherholtz brother does.

I always save the juices since the butts get wrapped in foil. When the butts are done, I pull them and add a bunch of the juice which the pulled meat soaks in, then put it in a gallon or 2.5 gallon bag and into the fridge. Adding the juice when pulling I think adds lots of flavor and moisture when reheating. Then you don't have to add sauce to it and can serve on the side.

Thumbs up

Well with all your advice It turned out Awesome. I decided to start the cook about 1 pm so it would be done around 10:30 -11pm. With about 2 hrs left I put on a Fatty, since none of my family had even heard of it, let alone tasted one. Then at 10:30 I pulled off the butts and I wrapped it in foil and towels then put them in a cooler. About 10 min later the Fatty hit the magic 165* so wrapped it in foil and put it in the cooler with the butts. The next morning at about 11:30am, I was surprised that they were still warm. As was shredding it up it had about 3/4" smoke ring (sorry no pics) When I served it I served it with the sauce on the side so everyone could tast the meat. All day and into the night i kept getting raves, so I must have hit the mark with this one.

I want to thank all of the Brethren that offered advice.

Lake Sinclair, GA (strategically about an hour from darn near anywhere)
Started competing in chili cookoffs back in the 1990's and have competed in more than I care to count. I became a CBJ in MiM in 2005, then MBN and in GBA in 2010. I've probably judged 130+- BBQ comps (sanctioned and unsanctioned) over this time. That said, I really enjoy competing more than I enjoy judging, and hope to get back to doing 4 or 5 a year in the near future.
