the butt load is at an average of 145 right about now... I am gonna pull a Bill and foil them when they hit 165 or so just to speed them up a bit... besides, I believe it gets me a little better yield and I need all the weight I can get.... I have figured I need 154 lb of finished product... so it could be close...

I have mixed emotions about foiling butts. I tend to foil when I am cooking for groups just so the meat will be soft thru and thru.

When cooking for just me.......no foil.

I may take the temps higher before foiling next time so I can attempt to identify a time to foil based on how hard the bark is at the end.

Good luck on your cook.

I have found that foil will help yield cooking direct. With gas, no need for foil.
