I know this is a lot to ask, but someone has to do it.
I just didn't pay enough attention to that aspect when I was there.
I could swear we have been over this already.

yes (some do)
a wax paper barrier is used at times
Now foil can cause Alzheimers from the heavy metals interacting with the food and salt.
I will warn... that your results will vary from temp style to temp style and pit to pit. All the people that use this technique for cooking after the stall are what you call in the hot and fast category. In addition, aside from keeping the meat from mushing up and ruining the bark, most of the benefits are going to be economic and convenience... like the fried chicken place that writes its orders on the same paper bag they dump your order in.
One thing I did not tell you was that foil can cause Alzheimer from the heavy metals interacting with the food and salt.
