    6 hours for a brisket. Still hot and fall apart goodness.
    It's not a science, it's an art. And it's flawed.

    I was just wondering about this last night.. I pulled a low and slow 4 lb pork butt around 11 PM (had cooked for 10.5 hours) and wrapped it in foil.. I let it set for an hour and then thought about FTC'ing it until this morning, but I was worried that might not work so well..
