Resting Time for a Boston Butt

First I wanted to thank eveyone for the great info I have received on this site. I cooked my first Boston Butts a few weeks ago. 17 hours of low and slow and the results were awesome![p]Now a question for the experts!![p]I would like to transport a cooked Boston Butt to a picnic I am attending that will require it to sit for 3 to 3.5 hours away. I have heard a lot of talk about wrapping a butt in aluminum foil and towels and putting into a cooler. Does anyone have any comments on how long the butt will hold a safe temperature?[p]Thanks in advance[p]Skipman

    It will still be hot 3 - 4 hours may want to consider taking the towels you are going to use and soaking them in hot water first, just as added insurance..HTH[p]Wess

    Skipman,[p]I have held large roasts hot for 6 hours. You can pour some hot water into your cooler prior to putting the roast in it. Of course, be sure to empty it first.[p]You can also line the bottom with newspapers or more towels.[p]Stogie[p]
