Usually there is no trimming needed unless there is a big fat cap that will not render while cooking. You want to KEEP the silver skin on the back.

I've wrapped them at an internal temperature of 165 and also did not wrap them. If you are versed in this method, go ahead and do it, but it is not needed.
