Flopped full house. Could I have extracted more value?

5/10$ game. Avg stacks 1000$ , full ring.
Fold around to hero (1000$) raises 99 to 30$ from HJ. BTN(500$) loose rec older player calls and BB (2000$) player who can read hands and respects my game calls.

Flop(90$) JJ9r. BB donk leads 50$. (His range is heavily weighted towards Jx here. He might have open enders but doubt he would lead into me on a paired board). What is the best play here? I think I should have min raised or made 2.2x raise so I can build pot and bet more on future streets. If I raise too big and barrel T also , he is capable of folding a weaker J).
I decided to call and BTN also calls.

Turn(280$) 10x. BB checks , I bet 200$ hoping to get called by Jx and straight on the turn. BTN calls and BB tank folds.

River (680$) . Kx . I bet 200$ish which was all-in for BTN and he called.

How could I have extracted maximum value here?

    im not raising here unless the donk is extra bad. My main goal has to be get BTN involved as much as possible here. We know BB is repping a small amount of Jx hands and more 9x and bluffs. also when u raise here, how often do you raise without 99 or Jx?

    I think you played the turn good, could see people checkng back hoping for a bet from BTN.

    River is also fine cause hes only 100bb deep. He has to have QT here if he doesnt have a J and if he does have a J he got pretty much every scare card in the deck hit for him.

    first of all, I think raising with only a very low frequency is best for your range OTF. 99 is probably one of the most frequently used raises according to GTO. However we play against a recreational player and your read is that he leads mostly Jx. If that's true I would really suggest a raise with good Jx,99 and probably nothing else as an exploit.

    raise to around 200-300. he won't ever fold a Jack right away and we want to stack his nutty range.

    keeping the BTN in the hand is a minor concern since he has a small stack and he either pretty much whiffed the flop or has Jx which goes broke anyways no matter what you do.
