OT -- Resting Your Meat

Confirmation of what I've learned on the forum.   Not that confirmation was required . . . but SWMBO got a kick out of seeing someone in the public sphere endorse my obsessive FTC ways.

    Thanks for sharing and what @SGH has been saying about butcher paper may be the way to go.  I know my first brisket on the egg I FTC'd it for about 5 hours and it was still hot to the touch and was very juice.  I have wrapped ribs in plastic wrap and foil them then reheated the next day and they were awesome.

    Interesting article, but I'm not buyin' it. Not where pork butts or shoulders are concerned anyway. I have read many times on here that resting butts or shoulders is not necessary and does not improve the meat. Doesn't hurt, but doesn't help either.

    That has certainly been my experience. I have FTC'd, but only when the pork was done before I was ready to eat. Admittedly, I have done this only a few times, but I have never noticed any improvement in taste or texture as result of the rest. If I'm hungry when it's done, I'm gonna pull and eat!

    I hate it when I go to the kitchen for food and all I find are ingredients!

    i believe it applies more to sliced brisket where you can see it dry before your eyes when slicing it hot. pork butt on the other hand is best picked right off the grill, the best part is the stuff stuck right on the grill =)

    I find when I let the pork butt rest uncovered for about 15 to 20 minutes it is juicer and easier to pull.  That's just my experience.  I pulled most of 2 one time right after coming off the egg and it wasn't as juice as I like.

    Thanks for linking this.  It supports my bias - at least for brisket.  And it reminded me that I needed to order some butcher paper for an upcoming brisket event at a friend's house where we will be cooking on a large offset smoker for 110 people.
