I have been smoking butts for a while, but I am getting tired of the excessively long cooks. I have never crutched my butts before.

Two questions:
1. If I foil wrap the butts, will they cook faster or just more moist?
2. Do I need to make holes for juice to escape the foil or seal it tight?

My thought behind releasing the juice is a concern about boiling the meat in the foil. Any tips would be welcomed. I am going to try crutching this weekend.

Hey -- welcome.

What is your cook temp? Butts are pretty forgiving and can take higher temps. I only foil during rest. They do take a while.

I have had my best results around 235, but I might go up to 250 for the sake of time. I have a WSM with a Guru, so I can dial it in pretty well.

Welcome aboard Mas.
I don't foil during the cook. Never have tried it.
I have read that IF you foil, it is to push the meat through the stall. So foil from an IT of 160 through 185 or so. Remove the foil to dry the bark back out. Cook until probe tender and the wiggle bone comes out clean.
Take pics and keep notes.

I cook mine at 275-300 if I'm not watching it close.

Like said, butts are pretty forgiving.
