I am a volunteer at an International Boarding School and I have been smoking Pork Butts and Beef Briskets for the past 2 weeks I have been pulling them from the smoker, wrapping them after a "rest", and then transporting them to the schools meat locker.
I smoke about 40 lbs. at a time, and average smoking time is about 8 hours. So far, I have smoked about 225 lbs. of meat, about 8 Butts at a time.
I was wondering the following:
Exactly HOW LONG can I keep the wrapped Pork Butts in the oven at 165 degrees? I am having difficulty in making sure I take my finished product to the school before the Kitchen Staff closes. If I smoke past 7:00 or some in the evening, is it possible to SAFELY keep them in the oven until the next morning?
I am doing this for the 4th of July celebration and appreciate any responses!
