Another thought might be to leave the door cracked until the new chunk flames. I took Konrad Haskins' BBQ 101 last year, and when I was feeding his pit, he admonished me not to close the door too fast ...

Also: is the 240° the gauge temp or are you using a thermometer at grate level near where the butt is cooking? You may be cooking at a much lower temp than you think.

If you go with dual racks in a 24 x 42 smoke chamber, you should be able to fit 6-8 packers pretty easily; my 24x48 will fit 10 10-12 lbers comfortably. With a couple briskets, you can do a couple but ...
