I'm hoping the Big Green Egg I ordered last week will come it this week and I will be able to pick up this weekend. I'm thinking of making a pork butt for my first smoke and am trying to decide if I'll want to wrap it when it hits about 160 degrees F or just let it sit until it makes it up to the full internal temp. I like to wrap beef, but I've never smoked a pork butt so I'm at a loss as to what I want to do. Right now I'm leaning toward using the Chris Lilly recipe that is floating around on the internet and I don't think this recipe calls for wrapping the pork butt.
My question is what are the plusses and minuses to wrapping? Right now I'm thinking if I wrap the pork butt it may be more moist, but I may compromise the bark. I do wonder though how much of an issue could moistness be for an unwrapped pork butt? I mean I'll be injecting it. Does wrapping get the butt up to temperature quicker?
