I keep a cooking log. Weight of the cut, where I bought it, airflow % (vents), external temp, wood, rub blend, internal temp/time, sauce, and a final summary. Through it I've developed a base for my rubs/glazes/sauce so if I want to change something up it's an ingredient here or a profile there and not just mixing and matching.
