Hey guys, new to the forum; I look forward to learning and contributing to this community!
I'm going to be doing my 2nd butt on my Weber kettle on Saturday. It's a 9Lb'r. I plan on putting it on 20 hours before the planned eating time, so I think I'll be fine, and if it finishes early I'll double foil/towel wrap and throw in the cooler. My question is about how to get the best bark. I've heard use water in drip pan/use drip pan without water, foil at 150/don't foil at all, spritz or mop/don't spritz or mop. Does letting it rest in the foil/towels for an hour or so affect the bark? Also, should I trim away some fat and remove the skin? If so, how much?
Like I said, this is my 2nd butt. My first one came out great but I wasn't too happy with the bark. I didn't foil through the stall but used water in the pan. I really want to hit this one out of the park, so what say ye professionals of smoked meats?
