Default Butts on a Drum ? and Dad's T-Day Menu release!

Okay, my dad has put out the T-Day menu and I'm in charge of pulled pork and Beer Can birds. The birds are taking place of the turkey this year. NO TURKEY this year. We will have pork, beef(mom's making pulled beef, brisket), and chicken. My dad did not want to fark with deep frying turkeys this year. (Thank God!) While it's fun, it's a chore too. I want to try to cook the butts the day of instead of beforehand.
So I have a ? Eating time is slated for 3 PM---SHARP!

If I run the drum hot, 275-300, and let's figure in one hour for resting(or at least 30 minutes, could I get em done in a 6 hour cooking time? Also, what would be the best (maximum) temp to get them up to so they pull like butta with the least amount of rest time?

Gracias!
Bob
