    Hi dabirdz.

    Have you checked the internal temp (IT) of the butt with a reliable temp probe yet?  You want to shoot for an IT of about 200*.  It looks like its coming along very nicely, great color and bark.  If you don't have an accurate probe, test it by pulling of the bone.  When it feels like it might slide right out of the butt, he's probably done.  Then a nice rest before pulling will put it over the top.

    Good luck!  Be sure to show and tell how it turns out!
