I have been smoking bone-in boston butts about 8lbs on my wsm 22. I normally have done 2 at a time and it takes about 16 hours at 225. My question is, would i be better cooking 6lb butts (I'm thinking about 12 hours) and will 4 fit for a total of 24lbs?

Yes 4 will fit easily, 2 on each rack.
You can also run the smoker at 270-280 & figure about 1+ hour per pound.
The top rack will run a little hotter than the bottom rack, so half way through you may want to rotate them.
