Default Turning butts on UDS

Hello! What's the general consensus on turning pork butts on the uds? Is it necessary? Normally I don't bother. Last night I cooked an 8lb'er. Kept it between 275*-325*. Thought I'd try flipping. After an hour in, I flipped. Couple of hours later, I flipped again. Then flipped once more a hour after that.

Had issues with large pieces of bark pulling off (AAARGH!) and sticking to the grate. Normally I never open lid at all during butt cooks.

I think I'll go back to no flipping, fat cap down the entire cook! What do you guys think? Jason :)
