What brand and model of pellet smoker?
I don't remember Bentley's method, but in my FEC-100 I start at 200 degrees for 4 hours to get some smoke and then kick it to 240 until I get the bark color that I want (about 5-6 more hours) and then foil with some liquid and finish at 265 until it is probe tender, usually another 2 hours.
That is for a 12lb packer.
All together it works out to be an hour per pound, give or take.
