Smoking a Boston Butt

Hello, I am new to the BGE. After doing a whole chicken and a pork tenderloin (they were great) I am going to do a 7 lb butt. After reading much of the material on the forum I'm down to a couple of questions. I would appreciate any help.

I am confused on how much charcoal to put in the egg (large size). I have read about separating the sizes but do you use the whole bag (22 lbs)? The next thing is I've read that some folks stack the charcoal up to the top of the fire ring. Also, has anyone tried mesquite?
