Was it better than when you would take it out later? I find that more resting time is always better. It was. I'd usually take it out more in the 120-125Â° range, and only let it sit for maybe five or so minutes. This way, it was noticeably juicier and had a far superior texture. I probably could have let it continue to rest longer than 12 minutes, but the alarm on my probe thermometer was set to go off once it hit 130Â°.
