Butts: What to do?

I am cooking two butts for a family get together in South Carolina. We are leaving here tommorow at 4:30 p.m and will be there at 6:00 p.m. Gonna start cookin tonight. Should i leave the butts in a cooler whole, or should I go ahead and pull them? And what temp should I pull them off the smoker? I normally do 195-200, but they will be holding for a couple of hours. Thanks in advance Gents.

Pull at 195, leave whole, wrap in foil, place in cooler, pull when you get there.
They'll still be hot.

Re: Butts: What to do?

While on the topic of butts ... At what temperature should I smoke the butt? Is there a point to foil or not foil? Do I have to raise the pit temperature towards the end to get the internal up to that 190 - 200° range? Thanks for letting me "piggyback" on your question SR

Just smoke at what ever temp you normally do, My UDS and WSM usually cruise at 250 so thats what I smoke at.

I usually foil my butts at 160 give or a take a few. That gives it enough time to get a good bark in my opinion. But I aint no expert

I think you will find that a butt is the easiest thing to smoke.
