I like to slam a few butts in the MES around 8:00 in the evening, throw the smoke to it for about 4 hours, then foil it in a pan and set the MES on 200 and go to bed. I did this with 4 of em last night. Pulled them out about 9:00 this morning and they were at 183 internal and tender as butter. I usually take butts to 195+ but there was no reason to go there with these. They were one step from not being able to move without fallin apart. The bark had moistened up from being in the foil all night so I took them out of the pan, poured off the juice and put them back in the smoker set on 275 for about an hour on the rack without the pan. It was long enough to dry the bark back out some and seemed to work really well. Kinda like the rib thing. Didn't dry them out at all. Thought I'd pass it on. I hadn't heard of anyone doin this to dry the bark back out after braising. All the flavor without the dryness..... plus just a tad of crunchy.
