Boston Pork Butt question--help!

I'm making a recipe tomorrow that calls for roasting a 8-10 pound pork butt in the oven at 300 degrees for six hours, until it's falling off the bone and fork tender. However, the biggest roast I could find was a shade under 5 pounds, and poking around the internet I've also seen arguments for roasting this cut at a lower temp (200 to 275) for longer time. Does anyone have any guidelines or rules of thumb for me? Thanks in advance!
