Default Butcher Paper Wrapped Pork Butt Wrapped in Foil

I recently barbecued a pork butt and used butcher paper (BP) to wrap it during the cook. I liked the results but I didn't like the long cook time. At my age, I much prefer shorter cooks.

So, I thought to myself, Self, I said, what if you wrap the pork butt in BP and then wrap it in foil?

So, here are the results. I rubbed a pork butt and started the fire in my keg. Brought the temperature up to 290* using white oak for smoke and put the butt on for 3 hours. After 3 hours, I wrapped the butt in BP with a layer of foil over that. After about another 2 1/4 hours, the butt was tender and ready to rest for an hour before pulling.

Here is the butt right after the rest.

Nice and tender!

Here it is after pulling it. Notice the bark. It has a nice chew and isn't as soft as the bark that is generally produced with foil only. I really liked the results and it only took about 5.5 hours for delicious BBQ pork.
