JJ covered every thing well. I only have 1 thing too add. I smoke unwrapped till the IT is 200-205 then I wrap, with some of my spritz in the foil, and let rest for several hours in cooler lined with towels. The bark does soften up but not falling off soft. I do not see the need to firm it back up, for PP. Now you might want to firm it up for slicing, but I never slice my butts.
