If cooking at 225 figure at least 2 hr per pound or longer if you are not foiling during the cook. A 9.5 lb butt could easily take 22+ hours at 225 deg. You can bump the temp to 250-275 and cut that time down to 1 hr, 1.5 hr or so per pound but be careful if you have a high sugar content in your rub as it may burn at the higher temps. I would also try to allow for at least 1-2 hours of rest, wrapped in a cooler before pulling and serving.
