Nice. Plan on 1to 1.5 hrs per pound. I would start early and you can always FTC it. Good luck.

Foil, TOWEL, cooler.

I've done the FTC for 3 hours and the meat is still pretty hot.  I've heard of other people going 4-5 hours.

I did a 4.5 hour FTC this last weekend and lost only 5 degrees IT over that period.

Mat,

Do you have a temperature probe? Internal temperature seems to be more reliable than time.

There are some great wireless ones. I took the advice from here and got a maverick.

Also, I have FTC'd overnight and the pork was still great in the morning.
