I wrapped it in heavy tinfoil and in a couple towels and then put it back in the oven. The oven is a little warm but I think it should be fine in there. How long to rest it?

Thanks very much. I actually don't need the meat for about 5 hours or so. Since I don't need a crust (thanks I had no idea) I will just leave it at 250 until it gets to 190 degrees. Then let it sit for about 90 minutes and then wrap to keep warm. Sound good? Thanks for all the help. Too bad you can't try some!!

Help with Roasted Pork Butt

Good morning. I roasted the pork butts at an average of 240 degrees for about 11h 45m. The therm is showing the meat is about 183 degrees. Is it possible this is already done or close to it? 17.5 lbs of meat to start roasting at 240 degrees for just under 12 hours? I was going to crank up the heat to about 400 degrees once it reached 190 degrees to form a crust and then cook for another 10 min or so and then let it rest. Does this sound right? Thanks!!

Thanks for your help. I was actually talking to a butcher who said to cook it at 200 degrees for 12 hrs which doesn't seem enough to me but I guess I can always adjust in the am if necessary. He also said I should cook it to an internal temp of 160 and not 190. Any thoughts?

Thanks for your help. Was going to cook to 150 degrees in oven and let settle which should result in a finishing temp of about 160 degrees. Does that spun right? Thanks again

Thanks Naco. Do you think 275 degrees is better for 45 min per pound? Was just going to put it uncovered in roasting pan. Already sat for abou 24 hours in salt lick dry rub. Any other suggestion? Thanks

Help with Roasted Pork Butt

I am cooking 2- 8.5lb boneless pork butts with the intention of making pulled pork sandwiches for a group of about 30 or so. I was planning on roasting it in the oven at 300 degrees for about 45 min per pound or around 12.5 hours and then going from there. I made a carolina bbq sauce that is really good. My dilemma is that I was going to put it in the oven tonight before bed around 10PM with the expectation that it will be done by 10:30-11 tomorrow morning and if not I still have time to continue cooking before my guest arrive around 2PM. However if it is done at 11AM how do I make sure it is still warm past 2PM? After pulling the pork can I transfer to a slow cooker and add the BBQ sauce and set to warm without worrying about the meat continuing to cook? Any advice is much appreciated and I am happy to share my recipe if desired. Thanks!!!
