What to do about my Butt?

GRE1GRE1 Posts: 68
Just pulled my butt off (6:30am), and it's nice! Problem is, dinner guests arrive at 6:30 pm.   Is this thing going to hold in a cooler or do I need to make plans to reheat somehow?

    I think that might be a little too long for FTC.  If your oven has a warm setting you could wrap in foil and keep in the oven.  Otherwise I would pull it now and reheat later. 


    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    Pull now and reheat this afternoon. Just curious though how did it get done 12 hours too soon?

    Pull it, pack into zip plastic bags. Chill. Drop bags into hot water before serving. If there is extra fat left, separate that, save, and right before serving, fry some of the PP in that to add back some crispiness.

    poor planning I guess, I've never had one cook so quickly. I anticipated a 3.5 hour or so resting period, but not this

    You may want to check the calibration of your thermo(s) and also see how the brisket that is riding along with the butt is doing.  FWIW-
    Louisville; "indeterminate Jim" here.  Rolling smoke in the neighbourhood. # 38 for the win.  Life is too short for light/lite beer!

    That's just it, brisket is right on track

    Sometimes that's how the cooks turn out.  It won't be the last time you have one run either way to quickly or on the flip-side take forever to get finished.  And there is no predicting how it will go...relax and get ready to enjoy the banquet on the horizon.  FWIW-

    the dome thermometer wasn't touching the butt was it ?

    didn't appear to be, but it was definitely high in the dome.
