The rule allows me to pull the butt at 150f in the mm, cut off the mm, hold, sauce and grill to finish. Put the rest back on for pulled. That's legal in 2014. I have no problem with it. I have no problem if the rule says once its been inspected you can part and cook any way you want.
Keep it simple. It's BBQ.
