I was inspired by a thread started a few days back from Bearcarver Bearcarver . he had made a roast beef sammie smothered in gravy and it really got me wanting one. At first I thought his was open face style but it was not. (I guess I just saw what I was hungry for lol!)

Started with a 2.5lb hunk eye of round. Put it in a vac bag with some Lipton beefy onion soup mix and sealed it up. This one went for 22hr @131°f.

Took it out of the bag. (Saved the liquid) and seared the outside on the kettle. Then sliced it up.

For the bread I used the thick texas toast style. I wanted a nice thick piece to soak up as much gravy as I could put on them!. Also had some mashed red potatoes and some peas along with it!

I made myself a huge plate!

Used to be one of my go to lunches at a cafe I used to frequent. Always hit the spot on a cold rainy coastal winter day.

Looks Awesome Travis!!
Now that's a open-faced RB Sammy, and an Awesome one to boot !!!
I got a long history with "Hot Roast Beef Sammies with Gravy":
When I was a Kid, it was my Goto meal whenever My Parents took us to a Restaurant.
Then when Bear Jr used to go with me to my favorite Local Bar/Restaurant for a meal, his first choice was always that same thing.
BTW: It was always the cheapest meal on the Menu too!!!
Nice Job, Travis!
Like.

Looks real good Travis. Whenever I smoke a Roast Beef, we slice it real thin and make these just like that. Excellent meal, and with the smoke flavor, instead of in the oven, it's wonderful. We only started doing it from the smoker a year ago. The previous several years was only from the oven. So glad we tried it on a whim, and it worked out so well.
Great work, thanks for sharing.
