Thanks xj - after the smoke phase the recipe for pastrami I have calls for a 30 - 60 minute steam in a covered roasting pan before serving. I'm assuming that step is optional and depends upon how you want to serve the final product.
The lazy do not roast any game, but the diligent feed on the riches of the hunt.

I steamed while smoking with my last one. Pulled off smoker and let cool as long as I could stand it before slicing thin. I do think that it was the best a day later after cooling way down in the fridge for a day. Though I would eat the whole thing hot off the smoker as that was amazing as well.

Sounds like I need to make two roasts and try them in different styles - dang I'm getting hungry for some hash.

For a quick and also delicious pastrami, get a bunch of corned beef when it goes on sale after St Patty's Day and smoke that, OMG, yum!

I just finished a batch last weekend (mule deer and whitetail) and it was some of the best meat I have ever had. Man why was I not doing this all along. I made several extra and vacuum sealed them (brined but uncooked) for later.

If I have any roasts left I think I'll cook/smoke them and pack em in on hunting trips next fall...if I can keep myself from eating it all!
