I am cooking 12 butts right now. They usually take about 8-10hrs on my smoker and that is what I was planning. I put them on at 5am so they would be ready by 5pm. The only problem is I have some that are at 130 degres and range all the way up to 183 degrees. Any suggestions on how to slow down the temps. They haven't stalled at all. Please help

I would check your thermos and rotate your butts

Done that. I got 4 different therms and tried them all in each one. I've rotated also. I think what I'll prob end up doing is cooking until they are done. Resting for a couple hours then pulling and reheating.

I wouldn't worry about it at all, pull them when they are done. Store them in a cooler with towels in it.

You may have some that aren't ready at 5 so you may be glad they staggered themselves out.

If you store them in a cooler with some towels you probably won't need to reheat them.

What size are these butts and what temp are you cooking? It seems it always take me close to 2 hours per pound cooked at around 225.

What he said! If as it's getting closer to 5 you see some are still not on track to be ready, you could wrap them in foil and put them back on the cooker....that will speed them along a little.

The ones that have hit the doneness you want should keep for at least 4-6 hours wrapped in foil and then towells or newspapers in a cooler

Just because it's 183 degrees doesn't mean it's done. It seems strange a pork butt could get to that temp in only about 5 hours. Does the probe slide in like butter? Or is there still some resistance.
