This last time I had some ribs on the smoker and did not want them cooking at 350. I also misjudged the time to cook a 3.5lbs butt and did not have the time to finish it at 275 with the ribs.
Also, during the winter, it is nice to have the oven finishing the cook. I don't have to walk outside and the oven is a constant heat. The butt is not absorbing any more smoke and I am not overly concerned with bark when cooking for the family.
I'm also rather cheap and using the foil pan in the oven keeps it cleaner and can be re-used over and over.
