    I am in the "cook indirect at around 250-260*F on the calibrated dome thermo" til you reach your finish temp.  Rub with kosher salt and fresh ground pepper then enjoy.  Expect it to take around 2.5  hours +/-  to 125*F internal. I use oak (Jack Daniels chips if I have them) for smoke.

    There are other ways to go-and hopefully the reverse sear crowd will be along as that is a popular method as well. 

    Louisville;  L & S BGEs, PBC, Lang 36; Burnin' wood in the neighbourhood. # 38 for the win.  Life is too short for light/lite beer.

    First thing I'd do is divide the roast in half. I'd rather ruin a 4lb roast than a 7. Don't ask me how I know...
