If it's a bone in butt, the best way to tell when it's
done is there will be significant pull back of meat from around the bone
and the bone pulls out cleanly. I cooked picnics last night and offer them up
as an example for you....
First in....

Ready to come out, take notice the pull back of meat at the bone...

These were in @250* cooking temp for 12 hours....And had an
internal temp of 205* My probe slid in like buddah and I knew
they were done.
Your times may vary, and as they say,"It's done when it's done."
I hope this helps you out....
