Roast beef ideas from my smf family?

    My father in law handed me a vacuum packaged, pre cooked, "cajun seasoned roast beef" as the package indicated, and asked me to smoke it. It looks like one you would ask your local deli counter for a pound sliced for sandwiches. I smoke in a MES 40 2nd gen using an AMNPS in a mailbox mod for my smoke generation.

    I plan to smoke it at 200° until I reach an internal ttemp of 135° using cherry wood. Does this sound like a good plan of attack? Have any of you pit masters tried something like this with pre cooked roast beef? I do alot of butts and ribs and everyone loves them so he has high hopes of what I can do with this. Any ideas or advice is much appreciated.

    Hmmm, pre-cooked.  Never done it but basically you're using your smoker as a re-warmer.  Definitely better at the low pit temp.  I'd do it in a pan to catch any drippings and would not go any hotter than 135F IT like you said.  You'll have to keep us posted how it turned out.

    Yeah ill pretty much just be warming it up to rareish temp and giving it some smoke. I feel like the lower the temp the longer it will get smoke thus the smokier it will be but i dont want to heat it for too long and dry it out either. I think I will serve sliced thin with smashed taters, gravey and corn on the cob. Mouth is watering already!
