Monday Night Cook... boneless butt

My brother-in-law and his wife just welcomed their first child into the world, so they're not sleeping.  My sacrifice to the effort?  Cooking up a 6.5# butt for them so they will have food to eat... I'm also cooking myself a butt to freeze so that when things get busy soon, I'll still have delicious pork butt to look forward to.  I'm trying the Costco boneless two-pack for the first time-- will be interesting to see how it cooks compared to the usual bone-ins.

The vitals:
Wood: Apple chunks
Charcoal : BGE
Temp: 250-275 grate
Rub: Olive oil and Memphis Dust (via Amazing Ribs)
Setup: PSWoo, platesetter, drip pan, raised grid, Maverick ET 73

Drink: Makers and Coke (felt right tonight.)
Listening to: Chicago White Sox postgame. (Sox are horrible this year.  So are the Cubs.)
Reading: Currently, this forum.  We'll see over the next few hours.

Hopefully the rain will dissipate and I won't have to roll the Egg into the garage.  Not holding my breath.

Salud!

    Sounds like you got it under contol.

    Not to get technical, but according to chemistry alcohol is a solution...

    Scratch that.  Hopefully the storm comes through quickly:

    Turned out pretty well.  Got 4.5 lbs. out of one of them and 3.75 out of the other. (That's around a 40% loss.  Need to work on that.)  Here's the results:
