What would you say is the max to keep them coolered. Double foiled and toweled in a warm cooler. Thanks


  • 3-4 hrs without having to rewarm after pulling.
  • That was the answer I was looking for, Thanks B)

    How many butts and how much empty space in the cooler?

    I have had 2 butts in a cooler tightly packed with towels and newspapers and after 6 hours they were still too hot to handle.
  • I agree with you Rod. It totally depends on the temperature of the meat. I do some catering and I have had butts in a cooler for 6 to 7 hours with little cool down.
  • I've got two in and there's not much excess room.

    I done one last week and the guy I gave it to said it was still hot when he got it 6 hours later. I used a small lunch cooler, double foil, and a heavy bath towel.
