I'm trying this for the first time on the UDS. I've never done a butt or picnic without foiling. We'll see what comes of it. I've got a 10# picnic on the UDS right now (no qview yet). I wanted more bark without it being mushy so I chose not to foil. I removed the skin and used Jeff's rub and let it sit overnight been on the smoker for about 3 hrs now smoke temp holding strong on a breezy day at 230. Will be doing spares tomorrow. I'll post some pics later when it's done, I'm also doing some buckboard bacon. Will post pics later.
