    After I cut off the point for burnt ends the flat generally is moist as heck after sitting out for an hour or two it starts to dry out I'd like to try to rest it for an hour or two instead

    Should I wrap it in parchment paper or foil or both?

    Will resting it mess up my bark?

    Should I toss in the juices that run out when I separate it?

    Cofi , I suggest resting in Butcher's paper . Will not harm the Bark enough to get upset over . . .:biggrin:

    I separate the point and wrap the flat in foil wrapped in a towel into a cooler, for at least an hour.  I cube the point, sauce it in an aluminum foil pan, and back on the smoker.  Once I'm happy with my burnt ends, the flat is unwrapped and sliced.  If I did everything else right, it's moist and tender.
