Do you guys trim the fat off your butts? I had never done it before but the one I did last weekend seemed like it had more fat on it than normal so I trimmed it up and really liked the results. I always throw all the fat away when I pull it so I was throwing away alot of the part that had the rub on it. I think since I trimmed the fat it exposed more meat to the smoke and got more rub on the meat instead of the fat. So I think next time I'll trim as much fat off before I rub it. Seems like there is still enough fat in the but that it would still be moist if I trimmed off the outside fat, right?
