Can I leave my butt any longer?

Happy Saturday!

I pulled my butt off the egg this morning at 9:30am (EST). I wrapped it with Al-Foil, newspaper and then another wrap with Al-Foil. It was placed in a small but very thick styrofoam cooler that it barely fit into. That was placed into a standard "Rubbermaid" cooler with warm towels taking up all the free space. I have not taken a look at it since and am hoping to keep it this way for about another 1.5 this unwise? :whistle:

My guests are running late and I put the thing on too early.... Would it be better to pull it and keep it in a warmed oven untill we are ready...if so, any recommendations for the oven?

As always, thanks for the wonderfull community you all help to create and thanks for making my cooking experiences as successful and pleasant as they have been!


  • What is the internal temp?
  • 152... I'm just about to start pulling it...

    Above 140 is ok isn't it?

  • I have a favorite BBQ joint in my neighborhood, and I noticed that the digital readout on his warming ovens indicates a constant temperature of 157°. He wraps his brisketts, ribs, and pulled pork in foil, and keeps it in these ovens to serve out of. Maybe you can duplicate this 'til your guests arrive.
  • Thanks for the input. When I unrapped it, it was plenty warm, the bone fell out and it pulled very nicely. Lovely stuff!
