Just made my first pulled pork but have no cooler!

I just got it off the egg.  Looks and smells unbelievable, but I just moved and somehow cannot find the cooler.  Can I let it rest in the oven?  If so, do I wrap in foil and set to a certain temperature?  What do you all think?

    I would use your microwave because it is a smaller space.  Pack in towels and such just like you would a cooler.

    I am no expert doing 3 butts as we speak, 2 are FTC and the last one is finishing on the egg. Depends on when  you are going to serve them. But I would foil and wrap it and put it in the oven, if you are eating within a couple or 3 hours, not sure I'd use the heat of the oven, if so it would be very low temp. Good luck
  • you can rest it on the countertop if you aren't holding it for dinner or something. The only reason you would need a cooler is for an extended hold. If you are eating it for lunch, just let it cool on the counter until you can handle it with your hands (still hot but won't burn you) then dig in. you don't even need foil for this process if you aren't holding it for later

  • Ive pulled several from egg and just let them rest 20 minutes and pulled them with two forks or bear claws. Just fine if you are eating right away.

    I'm not eating it right away, it's for dinner tonight (9 hours away). I wrapped it in foil, then towels and put it in the microwave to sit. Is this enough or should I quickly run out to buy a cooler?

    well, if you go buy a cooler, you will never have this problem again, plus you will have a place to store beers next to the egg the next time you are cooking.  You could have been back by now....
