5 lb Pikes Peak roast

I have a 5lb pikes peak roast I plan on cooking today. Any ideas on how long to cook it for? I planned on doing it indirect at a low temperature (225 F). I've looked at other recipes and it's saying only a couple of hours for a 6lb rib eye or try-tip roast.

    I did a 6 to 7 pound sirloin roast yesterday. Put it on at around 1:15 PM at 225 indirect. I pulled  and tented with foil when it hit 118. (about 4.30 PM) I got the egg up to a steady 475 in about 15 minutes and put the roast back on for another 15 minutes to sear. I pulled it again, wrapped it in foil then 2 bath towels and place in an insulated cooler. The roast was at 133 when I pulled it last and was 143 two hours later just before I sliced it. ( wife likes it a little more done than I)

    I'm still learning temperature control so I ended up cooking at about 300 F. Put the roast on at 1:00 pm and it was up to 150 F by 4:45 pm. Turned out well and everyone enjoyed. Next time I plan on pulling it off at 140 F so I have more medium rare meat.
