Local butcher had eye of round on sale. Picked up a 2lb roast. Rubbed down with a rub of garlic,salt and pepper. Sliced a large onion in half and placed the roast on top. Added some beef stock to the pan. Loaded up the smoker box with some cherry chips and a couple charcoal briquettes. Smoker set at 225. Shooting for an internal temp of 130- 140.

This looks relevant to my interests. Serving with horseradish? How do you slice the round so it doesn't come out tough as a boot?

la,

I'll slice it really thin on the meat slicer. And yes there will be horseradish. I love horseradish on my beef. I'll agree eye of round can be really tough as leather sometimes. It's not my preferred choice to make pit beef, but I couldn't turn it down for the price.

Well, making cuts of meat edible that might not otherwise be is a well known 'cue activity. I love horseradish on my prime rib, I can only assume that I would also love it on this.

Soda, I've got a question on serving it. Do you drag the beef through the broth or anything? Or is it just horseradish beef bun?

You can use it as a dipping sauce for a "hot dip" . I usually pack the leftover beef in it and freeze for making hot roast beef sandwiches later. I just add a little thicknig when making the hot roast beef sandwiches.

So sort of a French dip application. That is very relevant to my interests. Thanks!
