You need to cook it to 195ish. Wrapping it is fine.

Yup...198-200 for me.....when that probe goes through like butter its done....never before..

Whether you wrap or not is your choice. Wrapping helps push through the stall and makes the cook a little quicker. Once you wrap you can crank it up to 300 and save some time. Heck you can even wrap it and throw it in the oven at 300 until 200 degrees internal. After you wrap, the smoker just becomes a heat source anyway.

Personally I don't wrap at all, my be a subtle difference to me but when I used to wrap even for an hour the meat seemed more like boiled then smoked. Keep it up and drink a beer.

I used to be a vocal stubborn hardass about finishing it in on the smoker but the older I get the more valuable time is and once its wrapped at 160 ish, heat is heat. Unless you think smoke penetrates aluminum.. ...and yes I had a guy try to tell me that one day.....

A pellet smoker has saved me a bunch of time. Lol. Set it and forget it.

Your forgetting the big picture here, smoking is a beer drinking sport..."I'm gonna grab me a six pack and crank up this here oven" ... see, who says that

I still like playing with fire for a few hours. I like my stick burner.

Ha...when I was younger, yes. If I need the time, I can drink beer or really, whiskey, in my shop making stuff for my lease or shooting my bow while the oven finishes the smokers job with a constant heat. You youngins need to play smarter not harder..

Put a small pan of water in there if worried about drying it out.
