Pork butt stalled at 143
If that is the same Franklin PBS show, he also compared paper and foil with naked
His companion seemed to prefer the naked that had a crunchier, stronger bark with more smoke flavor in the meat
Goes to show to each his/her own
Yeah, I dont always foil. I do if I’m having company over and it looks like it wont be ready on time or I need to get past the plateau. I’m indifferent when it comes to bark. I can have it crunchy or not. What i do a lot is not foil until its done. Foil to cooler and open all my vents up to increase the temperature and throw some spatchcocked chickens on and pull the butt out of the cooler when teh chickens are done and serve pulled pork and pulled chicken.
