I like the extra flavor you get from the bark. I cut off as much fat as I can so I get more bark. I've done about 10+ butts like this. There is enough fat left inside and around the butt to keep it moist. If I did leave the fat cap on, it would be on top so all the juice runs over or through the butt. Any way you do it, it taste great.
