Question Lose bark on pork when foiled

I just took a pork butt off the smoker (WSM) which I had wrapped at 165F when it had nice color and bark. I put a marinade at the bottom of the foil (not on top of the meat) and put the wrapped butt back on the smoker which was staying between 135-150 degrees internally.

When I took the butt off once it reached 190F I noticed the bark was pretty much gone along w/ its nice texture. I know to expect some loss of bark but I haven't lost essentially all of it before.

The meat is still wrapped in foil and is sitting in a cooler right now. But I wanted to get your opinions on this....

Do you foil? If so how do you prevent bark loss?
