    Are you sure it is a packer?  Generally they are 12 lbs and over.  What temp are you cooking at?  You want an IT of around 200-205 degrees.  Attached is a picture of the smallest packer I could find. 

    Good luck on your cook.

    275-300 F dome, probably take 8 hours, plus or minus two hours.
