Turbo butt foil question

Trying my first turbo butt today, 4.5# bone in butt put on at 350 grid temp. 2hrs 15min later and I just wrapped it in foil at 160F and am going to take it to 190. Does anyone take it out of the foil and back on grid for a bit to crunch up the bark at the end, sort of like 3-1-1 BB ribs?

    For the record, the foil is not a must (just most do).  Just like the butt box to hold unless you need to make time....
    Salado TX Egg Family: 3 Large and a very well used Mini, added a Mini Max (I'm good for now). 

  • I do the turbo 325- 350 but do not put in foil it will not take that much longer and it helps with a better bark
    Life is short,love what you do or do something else
