Default holding food

I'm doing 12 pork butts tomorrow for my work.
After I pull the meat, wrap in foil, wrap in towels, and place in a cooler....

How long can the meat sit before it needs to be served?

At least 4 hours. Probably longer if you pre-heat the cooler with hot water.

Good luck!!

I've held as long as 6 hours. I've heard of 11.

12 PB's in one cooler together? They will still be too hot to touch. That many will definitely keep themselves nice and warm.

Default cooler choice

Greetings,

I have a cooler similar to this that we use on the boat.

http://www.polarbearcoolers.com/pola...r-coolers.html

Close it up tight and it keeps ice cold and hot stuff warm for a LONG time. It is superior (and $$) than a plastic cooler AND is easy to carry. Could be the right balance between a plastic cooler and a Cambro?

as stated above. 12 butts in a cooler is will hold at least 12 hrs. if you have a maverick stick one on top then close the lid. 140 is you magic number.

You can hold them as long as you want as long as the temp remains in the "Safe Area" above 145*. Once it falls below this temp, you are going to either need to re-heat it or start chilling it down.
