More charcoal with the A/R or the platesetter?

I am doing an overnight cook so I want to fill up on charcoal as much as I can.  I have 2-10 lb butts on a large BGE.  Can I get more charcoal in with the A/R or the platesetter  or is there no difference?

    Don't have a AR but I do have a woo. It sits slightly above where the normal PS would sit. I can easy get 25 hours.

    With the plate setter on top of the fire ring (not down in the notches) there is no difference.  A large egg at 250 degrees will easily exceed 20 hours ... more than you should need to finish your pork butt cook.  Good luck.
