I am a fairly new egghead.  I smoked two pork butts for a party at my house tonight at 6 pm.  This is my second time and they were ready waayy earlier than with my first cook.  I took them off the egg stuck a thermometer in them and wrapped them in foil and a towel and put in a cooler around 8:30 am this morning.  There is no way they make it to tonight w/o refrigeration.  What do I do now???

Do I pull them before refrigeration?  Do I refrigerate them whole?  Stick them back on the egg whole to warm back up?  I have no idea what to do.  Please help! Thanks.

    I would just keep them warm in the oven still wrapped in foil ... try to keep @ 140º or better until about 5 pm and should be good to pull @ 5:30

    i'd recommend pulling and foiling in a foil pan, then refrigerating.  reheat it slowly at 250-275 for an hour or so.  you can add a small amount of anything from apple juice to coke, etc.  if you want to add moisture when reheating.
