    I don't usualy foil mine untill I pull it off and let it rest.They have been coming out pretty juicey. I leave them alone for the first 2 hours, after that I spray them with apple juice after that about every hour. Some times I flip them some times I don't. I can't honestly say which is best. I take them to a temp. of 200 then foil them for about an hour or so. After that the bone honestly just falls out. Hope it turns out the way you like. Butts are pretty hard to mess up.

    Foiling is a matter of choice. Some do, and some don't. Let us know what you do and please post some pics if you can!

    Enjoy your smoke!

    Take care, have fun, and do good!

    I have to stand behind meowey's sticky. You will be please with the outcome of foiling. It comes out juicier and more tender.
