When pulling the pork you will still notice some unrendered fat inside of it still. I just make sure when I am pulling it, i remove the globs of fat from the meat.
Great post. I cut off as much fat as I can before I rub spice and throw any globs in the trash when I pull. Also, near the end, if you take the heat up, it will melt away a lot of that fat.

Ps, nice score on your new pit brother!
