I am going to cook on my BWS Party, at about 245*. I know that if I foil I can cut that time down. I'm wondering if it would be bad to let it go, and if I start getting nervous about the time, foil at that point (it should be above 150* internal by that point).
Time is a guideline, yes it could take that long and maybe not. Internal temperature is also a guideline, the real test is done by touching with the fingers.

Use your favorite or just salt and pepper, make it to your liking...
