Ok so...this just dawned on me because I was thinking about smoking tri tip for a party and didn't want to worry about timing so much, but not have it be overcooked. If I smoke a butt or brisket or even ribs and they finish before dinner time, I probably sit them on the counter for just a few minutes before foil, towel, coolering them. With these kinds of meats it's not the end of the world if they raise a few degrees due to being wrapped in foil. However, with a tri tip that I am going to cook to 125 and might raise another 10 degrees or so if I was to just let it sit I am afraid it would overcooked if I foiled it too soon. So my question is...how long do I let it rest unfoiled, before foil, towel, coolering it to keep it warm? Until the IT stops rising? My other question is...will this put me in the danger zone? Thanks so much !
