If you don't foil you better be ready for a long smoke.

 

No foil makes for a nice bark but it takes longer .

Foiling at 165º will help speed up the cook time but will soften the bark.

 Pop the heat up some once you are foiled and you can be surprised how much quicker you get done, without the butt suffering. My last 6 1/ lb. butt took only 7 1/2 hours.
