I've never done this before but it would seem to me that if you wrapped in bacon before you put it in the smoker, your bacon would be really crispy (nee burnt up) before your butts are done. Think I would wait to wrap until you have about 2 hours left. Maybe others have done this and have some input.

I've smoked allot of butt's but never wrapped one in bacon. That's a new one to me.

Lean butt's??? Is this wild hog or regular piggy?
Only bad thing about wrapping in bacon is that the bacon takes all the smoke, none gets to the butt. Just my $.02 icon_mrgreen.gif

I think perhaps you are referring to pork loin roasts which are lean.

Pork butts are very high in external and internal fat and certainly don't need to be wrapped in bacon.
