Is it really 5 hours that the roast needs to cook? Seems like a long time?

Brenda says:

We made this recipe today and 5 hours at 325 is too long. The roast came out dry, overdone and stringy. Even after resting there was no way the roast could be sliced.
Will try the recipe again but at a lower temperature.
