all night butt smoke

hello everyone. Last night at 6:30 I put on a 7lb1oz boston butt. I went to bed at 9:00, the temp was at 225. I got up at 12:30 to check things out and the temp was at 280. I hope this did not hurt the beautiful chunk of meat. I was freaking out. I closed both top and bottom vents approximatly 1/8 of an inch, got up at 4:00, and the temp was at 235, where it has been every since. I thought that I needed to cook it at 225, and I am trying to slowly bring the temp down to this. This is the second all nighter that I have done, and the last one turned out intensley good. I hope the same for this one.Does anyone know an address from which I can buy a polder? How much do they cost? I have not opened the lid yet, and don't plan to for a while, but will eventualy have to in order to check temp. Thank you for any comments or advice.

    rw,[p]The temp range that you experienced overnight should not cause a problem at all. Keep resisting the temptation to open the lid. I'd check the temp of the butt at about 16 hours into the cook and go from there.[p]Puj
