I brine my pork butt or shoulder for at least 24 hrs in some pickeling salt and molasses. that add more mosture to the meat. Also some cook till 160 then cover in foil and add apple juice to cook the rest of the way to 190 - 205 degrees.

hope this helps but the real key to this is to keep experementing and see what works for you, what you like and the best part is you get to eat each of the experiments along the way.
