First long slow cook questions

Hi Eggers -- I'm doing my first low slow cook tomorrow -- 1/2 of a Boston Butt (the top half) -- should be about 5 lbs -- using DD rub

I have practiced temp control with my Stoker and StokerLog -- I plan on cooking at 250 degrees using Hickory wood -- I have small lumps and also chips

I have a few specific questions:

1) After cleaning my BGE I will load with lump. How should I put the Hickory wood in my load?

2) To inject or not to inject? I have the receipe given in the BGE cookbook but is it worth it?

3) Should I "mist" my BB during the cook? If so, What should I mist it with?

4) Anyone predict how long this cook will take to reach final temp?

Thanks
