I think you guys are over complicating it.
I agree with Rodinbankok
For vending, I cook all meats ahead of time and chill, or freeze.
I remove the butts from the smoker at 195F, rest, pull, put in ...

I foil after 5 or 6 hours, depending on their color, then run them up to an internal temp of 200, rest and pull.

We have never cooked ahead for vending, is the quality the same?

No, it's better.

We hear stories about jubblies bouncing in and out of the pool and you give us a photo of a drunk guy sleeping it off.

I would cook one case of butts and one case of briskets.
