Cut pork shoulder into smaller pieces for smoking?

I saw a recipe somewhere where the instructions are to cut the pork shoulder into 4 small pieces to cut down on the smoking times.

Can anyone comment on the downside of this? Wouldn't 4 small pork pieces get to a higher temperature faster than one big shoulder?

This saturday I am planning my second attempt at smoked pulled pork. For the first time, I smoked the entire shoulder for about 3 hours then finished it off in a crock pot. I would like to do the entire thing in the smoker.

Is it possible to do this within 6-8 hours in the smoker, or should it be transfered to the oven to finish the temperature off?

I'm using a charcoal grill as a smoker so i'm afriad its going to be difficult to do anything more than 6-8 hours.
