Default Holding butts

I pulled my butts off at 7:30 am, Can I keep them foiled and wraped in towel in the cooler until 1:00? That probably will be the soonest I can pull them. They smoked little faster than I thought.

I have held them for four hours before but not 5 1/2. Jus wondering if they would get mushy.

Thanks

How many butts? If it's just a couple I don't think there will be enough thermal mass to keep them cooking. I've held two butts in the cooler for 4 hours without hem getting mushy.

Just keep a thermometer in one to make sure that they don't go below 140 as time goes on.

Oh yea, Used it to make a chitload of ABT's for the neighbors. That thing works awesome. Used trays with holes in them and they smoked up great. Built up some arm strength also moving it around.

Will try ribs next.

Thanks for that Frankendera. Will post pics next time.

I've held two butts in a cooler wrapped in towels for just over five hours so I could smoke some ribs. I think I was at the limit because it was just about to get a bit mushy, but it was still really good. I think I'd conisder pulling after about 2 hours and actually do the pulling, add a bit of sauce and wrap it up until you're ready. I think it might be better to reheat than to cooler too long.

Any other opinions? This is an issue for me too since I usually need to do the butts seperate from the ribs.
