Mike,

At the 165° you could have been ready to break out of the plateau, so the foil just sped up the process a little and locked in a little moisture as well. That was a good move. The bone-in butts will generally be moister and you may not need to baste them as much either, but that's a personal thing. Injecting will help on the moistness factor. I have some oldie-but-goodie injections on my site that are a good starting place. Link is below.
