I only foil them for the same reason as you. Just to git 'er done.. But when I have pulled them to foil they were never what I expected. I hear all the comments about "bark is overrated", and "taste over looks", but I want it all. I can say that cooking hotter gave me what I was looking for. I was actually out running errands and thought for sure I had a couple hours to go. I called the wife to check the temp and she said the meat probe on the ET732 read 190. So I rushed home, foiled and coolered. I am about to pull it out of the cooler to slice her up. No one is here yet so I should be able to get a picture.

I used my last stockpiled bag of KBB today for this one and will go back to RO Lump now.. Pics to follow!
