I would like to rest it for an hour. But I have trouble resting it past 15 minutes. The smell drives me crazy until I'm slicing it up.

One hour minimum, but it is usually longer.

Rested one about 3 1/2 minutes tonight: just long enough for folks to smell it and come in the kitchen!

When we have guest over, I like to keep it double wrapped in foil on the kitchen counter and the smell permeates through the house. After about 1-2 hours of smelling it they are starving to eat it.

At the very least 1 hour, but prefer at least 3 if time permits.

as many as 8 hours (you got to pull them at the right firmness though) in my Proofing Oven/warmer wrapped in plastic.

And remember, my rubs makes my bark snap back at you when it sits on the table 10 minutes.
