  1. I've got a siloin tip comming off the smoker in a few minutes. I want to hold for dinner in  2 to 3 hours. Should i put it in a cooler and try to keep it hot or cool it in the refrigerator and reheat the dinner portion later?

    Double wrap it in foil then wrap it in towels and into a cooler and it will be just fine

    It will stay warm for hours and hours. I have held stuff for almost 6 hours and it was still hot as heck.

    How do you want to serve it - rare, med rare, well done?  If you want to serve it medium or below pull at 135 at the most - it is still going to have some carry over cooking in the cooler
  8. I pulled it at 140deg. I'm gonna serv. Two of us tonight with hot roast beef with mushrooms and gravy, mashed potatoes, greenbeans. The rest will be thin sliced tomorrow for sandwiches. This is my 2nd smoke. I had planned to do pulled beef but changed plans after reading in the forums that it would be a better cut as sliced roast beef.
