Default Looking for a little help

Got my UDS loaded with 40 lbs of butt setting at 160 right now . I was going to foil but I'm not happy with the bark. What say you will I be able to foil at a higher temp?

160 - bark not to your liking... let it ride for another hour or two, then decide.
You're in the stall.

I've never foiled a butt before and they have all turned out tasty.

Skip the foil, when the bone is able to pull out, it's done. You'll thank me later.

Thanks guys, just a little worried. First time cooking this much meat.
Thankfully the beer is holding out.

AS long as the beer's holding out everything will be ok, no foil.

How much time do you have? Foiling will speed things up. But, if you are not in a hurry, you will get better bark without the foil, IMO, but cook time will be longer.

Keep us posted.

I'm up too for at least 3 or 4 more hours. I gotta try to stay up all night (east coast time) so i can sleep all day and then go work an overnight shift at the hospital for the next two nights. I absolutely HATE having to switch between shifts so frequently, but it does get me acquainted with some cool bbq people online :)
