Like the others said, no problems with not wrapping pork UNLESS it's getting too dark for you or you need to speed the cook along. I do wrap before resting in my hot box and add a cup of apple or white grape juice to the foil. This gets mixed into the pulled or chopped meat. And by the way, chopped pork is highly underrated.... it's pretty good. I heard a story years ago that chopped pork was popular in the early days at pig roasts because a lot of the older country folks had bad teeth, and having some chopped meat allowed them to enjoy the pig pickin' better.
Ah man I cannot wait to get one of each. I stop by my Ace once a week to pick up pellets for my weekend smoke and I drool all over the BGEs. They have em all over the BBQ section. Small ones, big ones and a little tinnie tiny one. That tiny little BGE cracks me up, looks like it does two burgers and a hot dog LOL. I may just go over on Saturday and just get me a BGE XL.
