Red face My first Butt/Picnic

Hey all.

I'm doing my first ever butt/picnic/overnight smoke for Christmas Eve dinner (one of the entrees).

Here are photos of the shoulder with picnic:

It does have an "8% solution."

Some questions:
  1. I planned on using KosmoQ Pork Injection tomorrow night. With that 8% solution, should I still do that?
  2. If we plan on eating at 6:00 Christmas Eve, when should I get the meat on Thursday? The roast weighs 12.33 pounds.
  3. How often should I plan to wake up during the overnight cook to check temps? I do not have a maverick yet, so I'm relying on a turkey therm to middle of grate, the thermo on the side of the drum, and a turkey therm in the meat.

Thanks for your expertise folks. My parents are trusting me with a lot.
