When a skewer feels like it's going into butter. Make sure to probe several spots.

I apologize as this is not an attempt to hijack the thread but I was wondering about slicing a butt. I have never tried this but it sounds interesting. Do most of you slice it while it is still warm or do you let it cool and refridgerate for slicing? I guess it could depend on the desired thickness of the slices and the slicing mechanism (knife, meat slicer, etc.)

Sliced 165-170, pulled 190-200. You can slice after letting it rest as you would for pulled. If it's done right it'll slice warm or cold with a knife or slicer.
