8 lb butt, rubbed and ready to go. People coming for dinner tomorrow around 6 PM.
so, put it on at Midnight before I go to bed, and take a chance it is done too early and has to sit for more than a few hours in foil towel cooler.
Get up early, put it on by 6 AM or so, but have a chance it won't be done by the time the guests arrive?
What do folks usually do?
