The hotter you smoke them at, the better skin you will get. I do lots of quarters at 275-300+ on my WSM, and they are done in 2 hours or so. The skin is crisp, and the meat juicy. Pull the butts, open the vents, add coals if you need too, and cook them hotter.
You can also cook them at 225, but it will take 3+ hours, and you will end up with rubber texture skin. You can finish them on a grill at that point to crisp it up, but why waste the time and charcoal? Cook them hotter to start with, and you will be better off!
