Boston Butt and Pulled Pork Questions

edited 5:33AM in EggHead Forum
My wife has to work tomorrow and the rest of the family isn't comming over until dinner (mustard rubbed steaks) so I decided to spend the 4th of July with my dog, my BGE, Mr. Sam Adams (and probably a several of his friends) and a Boston Butt.[p]For great pulled pork I have heard that you want to cook until the internal temperature reads 195-200. [p]What temperature do you recommend to cook the Butt at and more importantly, what kind of wood would you use to smoke it?[p]The Butt weighs in at just under 5lbs -- Sam Adams approx 12 fl oz per bottle. I have rubbed with mustard and covered in JJ's Rub.[p]Any help would be greatly appreciated.[p]Also, how long can I expect the cook to take at the various temperatures.

    bbqman,
    Sam Adams is good.
    195-200* internal is good.
    225-250* dome temp is good.
    Any wood you like is good.
    I like mesquite, personal preference.
    At the above temps figure about 12 hrs or so.
    Beer it's not just for breakfest anymore.
    Need more I will be here.

    bbqman,[p] Just last week, with J.J's help, I done a small 3-1/2 pork
    sholder. I stayed on the egg for 10 hrs & turned out super.
    I was ready for diner at six but had to wait untill just
    short of 9:pm. Well worth the wait.[p] Earl
