Did they dry out? Cooked one on the Egg today. While it was tender it was very dry. Took it to probe tender, was 196*. But it was one of the ugly ones, several flaps held together with some fat. Wondering if I should have tied it....or if it was the size of it....

the one that i cooked had that stretchy string around it to hold it in shape. tying it may have helped. some drippings or a finishing sauce can help with the dryness.
