Smokin' Pro Capacity

My church is having a work day coming up in a couple weeks and my dear, sweet wife volunteered me to smoke some pork butts for pulled pork for all the workers at lunch time. I feel I am still a little "green" in the smoking realm to feed a small crowd but going to give it a shot! My question is, how many pork butts can I realistically put on without it being too much? I have 4 butts in the freezer right now around 7 - 7 1/2 lbs each. I dry fit them and while they all fit, I am definitely going to need a heat deflector because a couple of the butts are going to be pretty close to the firebox opening. My other option is to cook some the weekend before, vacuum seal and reheat before serving but finding time might be an issue.

So, what's the best option for a heat deflector? I have seen some people just flipping the charcoal grate over and using that. Does that work well?

Has anyone else packed their Smokin Pro out before with good results? Keep in mind the only mod I have on this until is a charcoal basket. Anything else I should do to have success?
