Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
It doesn’t get much hotter than the EGG cookin’ in July! Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with a bit of whatever you’re using for the Beer Can Chicken. Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

Done at 10am, resting in towels in the cooler now. Should I refridge and reheat or what?

    If you placed some hot water in the cooler for about 30 minutes. Throw 2 large towels in the dryer for same time period or if no dryer around place towels on cement driveway if sun is hot. empty water, place one towel in cooler, wrap all butts in heavy aluminum foil( hopefully u did that already). place the other towel on top wrapping around butts. Should hold you for 4-6 hours. (Yep,Car Wash Mike told me about this early on).

    If you keep them hot in the cooler with lots of foil and towels, they should stay safe temps for 6 hours. you can always check them with a thermometer. If things are looking dodgy, then put them in the oven at its lowest setting. This might help:
