I am lazy as well at 4am so one thing I do if I plan a long cook or very early morning start time is get the cooker started the night or evening before. The addition cost of fuel is inconsequential, your never rushed for time, and all thats left to do is get up throw on the meat and go back to bed (especially if you prep your meat the evening before as well). For shorter cooks this may not be a option but for those 15-16 hour brisket cooks or 8-12 pork butts its perfect.
