½ cup water

Is it bone in or boneless?
Depends on the temperature of your oven.
Get a thermocoupled thermometer and insert the probe in the center of the roast 1/2 way in.
It should be about 20-25 minutes to a pound at 325 degrees.
If you use a good thermocouple, with a digital readout and alarm you can set it for the desired doneness.
Be sure to let it rest for 30 minutes prior to carving.
