What time are you serving? How many pounds are each? More details would be helpful. I'm sure you will get plenty of help...just give us as many details as possible...

Have fun and happy new year.

I have no experience with that smoker, but in general figure 90 minutes per pound at a cook temp of 225 - 250. Allow plenty of time. If they are done early just wrap them in a couple of layers of foil and put them in a dry, preheated cooler with towels or newspaper for insulation. They will stay very hot for a few hours (maybe longer). I try to get at least two hours of cooler time for butts as a rule. I think it helps the juices circulate.

I doubt it would hurt anything. You're going to extend the overall cooking time, of course. What time tonight? They could be done extremely early if you put them on too soon.

Thats probably OK. You'll want to kick up the temp in the morning since you're probably looking at 2 hours per pound at 200 degrees.
