OMG....that sounds so bad if you're from the outside world. Anyway, I have been going over the forum now for a couple of days trying to find an answer to my question & I keep running into funny, funny threads. All great information. My questions: 1) Do you have to foil your butt at 165° ?? What if you don't & still pull it at 200-205° degrees to foil, towel & cooler rest? I am not sure if I read why we have to foil it at 165°. Is it to keep it moist & from drying out? 1a) I just though of this as a side question. Won't the probe be a little hot to the touch? I mean, do your wrap the probe as well or wrap around it? 2) I have seen that you "Keep smoking while foiled" in some of the posts. If the meat is wrapped in foil, how does the smoke permeate the meat? I thought we were to stop smoking meat at 140° & just keep the heart going. My understanding is that a dumb question is the one not asked.
