    My suggestion would be to plan to be done about three hours earlier than you actually want. A three hour hold in a cooler won't hurt either meat but taking longer because something didn't turn out quite as planned could put a damper on the whole thing. I've found BBQ is a lot better when everything goes slow, including the cook. Rushing to finish is no fun.

    I would also suggest that once you have a couple hours of smoke on, pushing the temp to 275F or even a little more won't hurt and will assist in pushing both cuts through the stall.

    A packer usually takes 5 hours high and hot. Perfect every time with no stall. Id back off to 4.5 hrs, leave it wrapped, and it will finish on the way.
