Question...Hold Time

What is the maximum time you would ever hold a butt after cooking (wrapped in foil, towels and in cooler)[p]I've got 4 butts going on this afternoon. 2 are 8 lbs, 1 is just under 7 lbs and 1 is just under 6 lbs. They will of coarse be finishing at different times so the above question is kinda important. [p]Thanks in advance for the help.


  • Hasenfeffer,
    I held 2 - 7lb. butts for 7 hours and a 8lb. brisket for 4 hours in a warmer cooler foiled and wrapped in blankets. The brisket was put into the coller about an hour after the butts were placed into it. All were nice and hot when taken out.

    Everyday is Saturday and tomorrow is always Sunday.
  • Retired Railroader ,
    I really appreciate your help with my question. I've never done this much meat at one time, not to mention the variation in weights. This is for a company dinner so I'm a bit anxious on the timing. Thanks for putting me at ease ;-).[p]I'll let you know how things turn out.
