Turbo Butt fail?

First turbo butt today. Rubbed in mustard and Byron's, threw on indirect at 350 until it hit 195. FTC for about an hour. Pulled it and a whole side of bark came right off. It was really hard. Is this normal or did info something wrong?? The meat was pretty good. A little dry but I'm thinking it's because it was only. 4.5# (biggest they had).

    sounds like it was a thick fat cap that fell off to me.

    I have tried the turbo butts and ribs and find both to be pretty average at best.  Call me old school or whatever, but if I don't have time for a low and slow, I grill something.


    I'm ashamed what I did for a Klondike Bar!!
