There is no "need" to foil (wrap) your meat with or without a water pan. It is largely a personal choice. You'll find folks from both camps here on the forum (I'm in the don't foil camp unless I'm in a hurry, which you should never be when you're Queing). Try both ways and see how YOU like it best.Do I need to still foil my pork butt when it gets to 160?
