Smoke for about 3 hours exposed at 220, then wrap in foil and put back in smoker for another 4 hours. It will fall apart! What type of wood are you using? For a pork roast I like apple or maple chips soaked in rootbeer.

7 hours should be plenty enough.

The key is in the temp not so much the time.

When you wrap it in foil, make sure you wrap it several times and make sure it is water tight.

You want to keep all those juices in the foil.

When you take it out place it in a pan with sides on it, and then open the foil so you don't lose any juice.

If you have access to a meat slicer use that to slice it. It is soooo much better thin sliced across the grain with the meat slicer.

If it were up to me I would brine it for at least 24 hrs before using the dry rub on it. Brine really helps with the juiciness of the meat.
