24 pounds of pork butt

My BIL and his family are coming for a week of holidays, and our kids and grandkids are also joining us so we picked up 3 x 8 pound bone in butts from our local butcher shop, when SWMBO went to pick them up, the butcher came out with the goods, smiling and saying "that is a lot of meat" We have a pretty good repour with him, and the comment from my wife was " He is going to have fun with this". So tonight I placed them on the large egg to check with how much room I do or don't have. will use the PS legs up, and will find some AF pan of some sort to hold some water. Two butts on the main grill and then the last one on the group buy extender grill. It sure does fill up the egg, will need to move the thermometer out of the way. Question I am prepping for about 16 -18 hours, what to have it ready by 4 pm on Sunday, so am thinking about getting the egg warmed up tomorrow night around 9 and have it settled in by 10 and then I would have a few hours grace to either TFC or carry on cooking if the stall is a little longer. The two butts on the bottom will be touching each other. I have seen other threads that is doesn't matter, so I am running with that, if I am out to lunch with any of my thoughts here, chime in please, first time doing some much meat at one time. And I certainly don't want to ruin anything, Wish me luck I can hardly wait. I will post pics as it progresses. Going to a fun time grilling and also visiting with all the gang. Going to prep this puppies tonight with mustard and rub and then into the fridge.
