Boston Butt

Butt is at 189 degrees but not planning to eat for another 2 hours. Is it best to wrap in foil or shred and then wrap? Thanks!


  • IMHO, I would leave it on to 200 or so. I think they taste better.

    +1 to keep it whole and in the foil. Then wrap in a towel and stuff into a picnic cooler until your ready to shred.
    I knew all the rules, but the rules did not know me.
