did I leave this pork butt in oven too long?

Left a tamworth pork butt in oven overnight @ 200 F. When I woke up, 9 hours later or so, the internal temperature was 209 F, but the meat was now resting in a rather deep layer of melted fat (about an inch deep).

Have I destroyed this? Right now I'm letting it rest for a while, so I haven't tried pulling it yet. (last time it took 12 hours to reach 190 so I figured I'd be safe leaving it unattended for 8-9 hours)
