I'm cooking 3 butts this week to take to a few friends and family members that had a baby/had surgery this week. I'll have to travel about an hour and a half to deliver them. How should I go about this? I want to have some fresh for them to eat when I deliver it, and then want to store some single serving bags for use while they are recovering. Should I FTC and drive down there to pull the pork when I drop it off, or pull it before I leave home? How long can you safely FTC before pulling without sacrificing the quality of the pork?
I'm also thinking of cooking a slab of ribs to take with me, which would add 5-6 hours to the time. If the butts won't old up for that wait, I'll skip the ribs and take them later. Advice is appreciated. Thanks!
