Default How long do you plan to hold brisket/butt?

I know most people hold brisket & butt in a cooler or cambro at comps, but how long do you plan to do this? I understand everyone sets up a schedule prior to a comp and this can be altered by meats getting stuck. Do most teams have a buffer of 1 hour or is it considerably longer?

I plan for two hours leeway with briskets and butts, about 30 to 45 mintues with ribs and chicken.

That is about what I was told by a couple of the Brethren when I was asking...

Thanks for the replies, but is the leeway + prep/boxing time?? or does the leeway include prep/box time??
Also, do you plan for butts to take a maximum time say 2hr/lb or do you use your average time from experience??

I don't think you can go wrong either way...getting the box together should take no more than 15 minutes...

Some prefer minimal.. others want up to 6 hrs.. Personally, I want my briskets and butts off by 8-9AM, 10 AM at latest.
