I did bbq for 40 people a couple weeks ago. I tried a new method (cheat)

and it was actually really good for the time spent.

deboned and somewhat flattened two pork shoulders. Rubbed the same as you would if smoking it. Then get a charcoal grill ripping hot with hardwood if you can, and sear all sides of the flattened pork shoulder. I actually divided mine into 1-2 lb slabs to handle easier and get more crust.

Then Instant Pot for around an hour and a half, with whatever bbq sauce you're going to use. After it's out it gets chopped, sprinkled with chili flakes, sauce, salt and pepper.

You lose a little of the crispiness of the bark, but in a pinch this is actually really good for the time spent.
