First Butt....not perfect.....thoughts on what I did wrong

Alright guys....cooked my first butt on Sat....it was good but wasn't as juicy as I thought it should have been. 

Here is what I did...

-Took the butt out of the freezer on Monday
-Friday night put the rub on and put it back into fridge
-Sat morning got the egg dialed in at 240 and put the butt on. (Before putting the butt on I injected it with apple juice and apple code vinegar)
-After 15 hrs of cooking it reached an internal temp of 195.  Due to the time we dug into right away.  The pork was good but it was a little dry and it didn't just fall apart like it should.

I think I know where I went wrong but I wanted to get everyones input here.
