In my humble opinion there is no need to cook a butt higher than 190°-195°F, then wrap or cover and allow to rest for 30-40 min before pulling. The meat is already at the point where it will pull apart and I like the texture better. I do wrap mine as it is cooking when it hits around the 150° - 165° temp range. It really depends on how the cook is going. I don't like the outside to get black, dark mahogany is good, but black is not IMHO....
