Minimum pork butt rest/FTC time?
Is there a minimum recommended rest period before pulling a pork butt? Cook is running slow today...
LBGE & SBGE. Central Texas.
Not really. I like to let it cool till I can touch it but that's it.
Be careful, man! I've got a beverage here.
I hardly ever rest. Maybe a foil tent for 15 mins or so then pull and eat

I let mine sit on the counter for about 30 minutes.
Straight from the grill to pulling it unless I finished early. It's a bit challenging to pull when it comes off the grill, but I'm rewarded with fresh hot pulled pork to snack on while I'm pulling. yummy!

As mentioned above, no minimum, really. Just let your schedule set the pace.

If you're ready to eat immediately, don't tent it....let it cool down like Travis said so it's not so damn hot. If I'm eating in an hour, I'll let it sit on a cooling rack for an hour. When you pull it and it's 200F, the moisture comes out as steam. Not that you can't replace it with a finishing sauce, but there's no need to tent or FTC unless you're holding it for a prolonged period of time.
This is my signature line just so you're not confused.

If I'm not FTCing, I'll just let it sit on counter for 30-60 min. It's too damn hot to handle before that.
