Wrap and cooler, or reheat??

Have a church picnic at 12 noon on Sunday. I'll be leaving home at 8AM. Should I make my Butts the day before and reheat at the party (there's an oven) or have them be ready at 8AM and wrap them and blanket them in a cooler for the 4 hours? I'm kinda hardcore, so cooking them overnight is fine by me.

    If cooking over night is not a problem for you, I'd do that. Wrap them in the cooler and insulate it well.

    4 hours in the cooler is fine but getting them done at 8:00 am is the hard part. Butts seem to have a mind of their own but still very forgiving.

    You should have no problem holding them for 4 hours in a cooler.
    I typically wrap in plastic wrap and then in a heavy towel. They are still hot when I go to pull them.
  • I agree, I won't inject so I don't really have to worry about the 4 hour rule. It will take a while to come down to 160 anyway. I've done it before and no one got sick :)
