Default Stupid question about foiling

I just foiled my 3 butt roasts. They been on the smoker for 4 hours now and have an average internal temp of 155. Is foiling as simple as it sounds......just wrap up in foil and put back over heat or is there a certain procedure to it like leaving the top exposed ect?

Usually you'd want 2 layers of heavy duty foil so it doesn't leak. Add about a quarter cup of apple juice and wrap her up tight.

Too late I already wrapped in standard foil. I am sure it will leak steam out the top so hopefully this will be enough to finish these off in another couple hours or so.

The reason for the two layer heavy foil is to help prevent holes when moving it around. Just treat it with care so you don't puncture the foil or you'd loose all the delicious drippings and create a big mess.

I knew what you meant.....lol

When I put one butt from foil to rack I lost the whole bottom bark. I just threw it in the foil with the rest of its home lol.

If I wrap I put it in the oven to finish it off no real point in keeping the fire in the pit at that point unless I have more Butts than rack space in the oven.

I got 2 slabs of ribs going on the same rack as the butts so I cannot put out fire yet.. I figure as long as the fire is going for more meat might as well use it to finish the butts as well.

I wanted to but I had hit a stall around 150 and I was paranoid I wouldn't be done in time. Too many people expecting pulled pork. I panicked sorry

As the others said - just wrap it. Sometimes I leave a little opening at the top, sometimes not.
If you didn't double foil, just take a pan of some sort out to the cooker and put your butt on that as you pull it out of the pit - something to catch any juices that might try to make a run for it. Also - makes less of a mess on your floor...

Double wrapping or panning also let's you collect the foiling juice so that you can incorporate it into your PP :) No need to let that goodness go to waste.

Question To Foil or Not Foil that is the question...

Not meaning to hijack this but....I'm very new to the whole "Q" thing here. Built a UDS back at christmas and have done maybe a dozen pork shoulder/butts.

I've Never wrapped or foiled any of them. What (if anything) am I missing out on?

TIA

It's just another way to do it. It speeds up cooking and lets the meat sit in its own juices. FYI these butts turned out fantastic!!! I think I am gonna foil from here on out.
