Start it @ 10pm., pull it off the Performer around 2AM and put into a half pan, roasting pan with a rack, etc. and cover with foil. Put into the oven and let it go until probe tender.

This lets you get some sleep as a bonus. If it gets done early (for me, 8 lb. butts take 8~10 hrs. total cooking time), then wrap in foil and either place in a cooler covered with an old towel or two, or just turn the oven off & let it rest there. I try to raise the butt off the bottom of the pan a little with some sort of rack so it isn't swimming in it's own juices.

Good luck with your cook.
Was going to post the same thing. It really takes the guess work out once you've got it foiled. It will make the house smell of yummy pulled pork for a while, but my family kinda likes it.
