Does your "grocery store" offer country style ribs? If they do, then they have butts. Ask the Meat Manager.
I'd go with 45 minutes per lb at 210-220

At 225 degrees I've never had one take less than two hours per pound in my Smokin Tex to get to an internal temp of 200 degrees.

Yep, I always estimate 2hrs/lb for pulled pork on a fresh roast.

What kind of wood and rub are you using ?

You are right, that is kind of a light bark.

I have never clicked on a thumbnail does what that second one is doing before.

Kimmal,

I don't know if you are going to foil it or not but once you remove it from the smoker double wrap it in foil and wrap with a towel and place in a dry cooler (igloo). It will stay hot for a very long time. You can probably hold it for 4 hours like that maybe longer. I've held it for about 2 1/2 hours and it was still hot.

Take it to 195 if you are going to pull it.

Here is one I did last year.

Here is another one.

I've always taken them to 195 so I don't know if 190 will make a different.

I use a lot of rub on butts. I really get a good coating on all sides except the bottom fat layer. It usually stays stuck to the grate anyhow. It IS painfull but I use up a small bottle on one butt.

Yes, you still foil it and towel wrap and place in a dry cooler after the 195 or as oompappy said 199. I haven't taken one to 199 before myself but I'm sure oompappy's experience is fine also. Butts are hard to mess up.
