I put mine in this morning at 10:00am and it's almost to 160*   Five hours.  I also spatchcocked it and looks good.  It's on at 250*.  I am also not caring one way or the other about the crispy skin since I am going to slice it all up and reheat for tomorrow.

250-300'ish will get decent crisp skin after hours....use a therm in the thigh muscle...I'm a 180 IT liking guy in the thigh near the bone

Your MES tops out at 275° so use that un till the breast gets to 155° then move it to an oven at 350°-450° till IT of 165° and you will have crispy skin.

Happy smoken.
