Default Holding butts

How long is too long to hold a couple of butts double wrapped in foil and towels in a cooler? Dinner is in another 4 hours.

So whats the going rule on how long they'll be safe in the cooler?

Thanks brothers!

I have held butts for that long. They were wrapped in foil and padded with towles in a small cooler with very little free space. When I took them out they were still hot. you should have no problem.

Thats what I was trying to tell the wife ... but I think she probably would feel a little better if she heard from some of the Brethren!

I've held pork butts for as long as 12 hours in a 5-day cooler with additional blankets/towels to fill up the space. They were always above 140 when I got ready to pull them. Butts need a few hours holding to get real happy!

At comps we regularly hold the butts and brisket 4-6 hours. We pull or otherwise prep the turnins at turnin time...they are always too hot to handle without gloves.
