    thats what i told him. start is at 225 and if you need to cut it in half later, we will burn that bridge when we come to it.

    Advice is to get a thermometer that you know is good and smoke it to 135° internal at the center of the roast.

     wrap in foil and a towel  and into an ice chest for an hour minimum.  Cooking by time really will not work if you are looking for a certian doneness.

    If you want it rare pull it at 120-125. Here's one I pulled at 125, then let it rest in foil until it hit 135. Then sliced it.

    Update: it turned out surprisingly good. I think being cold in the middle caused the outside well done area to extend farther into the center. But i think thats to be expected
    Anyway, Thanks for the replies.
