You are cooking on a Traeger, so smoke it for a couple of hours at the lowest temp setting you have.
This helps a lot with the smoke flavor.
Then, crank it up to 275-300 to finish the cook.
Time? Probably 12 hours or so, but no way to accurately predict it.
Just plan on getting it done 3-4 hours early and do the cooler thing to hold and let it get happy.
Also, on beef use the strongest pellet you have available.
I start with a gallon or so of Blended Mesquite and let it change over to Hickory when the Mesquite is used up.
