Deli Style Roast Beef

I want to make some homemade roast beef for sandwiches. It seems pretty easy. The recipe I was going to follow said to use eye round roast, season as desired (black pepper, salt, garlic powder and onion powder) and then cook at 500 for 20 minutes and then drop temp to 300 until I reach the desired internal temp. To make the recipe more egg compatible I was going to roast at 250 indirect until an internal temp of 115, and then raise the temp and sear all sides.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

Does using a better cut of meat make any sense? Any recommendations or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

    Eye round is a little on the tough side. If you have a slicer you could cut it very thin. I did my roast beef for sandwiches with a sirloin tip roast, raised grate, direct, 325 until it reached 120. ;;)

    Substitute the roast for top or bottom round, sirloin or rum. They tend to be more flavorful.

    I'll have the Captain Morgan, to heck with the beef..... 
    Use a meat tenderizer with eye of round, slice it thin, it is ideal. You do not have to sear the roast for deli sammies, the crust is nice if you plan to eat it and use the leftovers for a deli cut. 
    I do mine at 350 until the IT is about 130, pull it, cool it and slice it.
