Howdy folks, had some questions about foiling and getting a nice bark on PP. I have made quite a few butts in the past but have always foiled them around the 6 hour mark. So the end result was always a kinda soft bark from all of the trapped moisture. Is foiling the way to go with shoulders/butts to retain moisture, or can one not foil them to get that crispy bark with them? I am gonna do a shoulder tomorrow morning and was thinking about changing it up a little to try and get a crispy bark but I also don't want to dry it out too much.
Is not foiling a viable option?
I thought about foiling and then taking the foil off the last hour, but i know sometimes they practically fall apart right at the end and thinking it may be more difficult to successfully unfoil without A)breaking it apart prior to being the appropiate temp, and B) accidentally scraping off the bark when unfoiling since its super moist at that point.
Will start up a Q-view session in the morning when I get her going.
