How do you reheat your leftovers?

We just ate left over chuck roast from last nights cook for lunch.  I had the same problem as with leftover brisket, it's just so dry.  Last night when it was hot from cooking it was juicy and tender.  Of course, I just heated it on a plate in the microwave today, which I know can't be the best way.

So is there a way to heat up sliced brisket or chuck to make it moist again, or would I have been better off just chopping the rest and mixing in sauce for sandwiches?

    Last weekend I did some smoked beef back ribs...looked like something Fred Flinstone would eat!

    On Thursday night I took the left over ribs and got all the meat off the bone and made a stroganoff with it. It was awesome. Don't ask me what me do that other than the wife wanted to clean out the fridge and I had the ribs, mushrooms, milk, sour cream, etc.

    When we reheat cooked bbq meat I do it in the microwave at about 30% power it will take 3 or 4 times as long as it does at full power but it does heat it more evenly.

    With beef I blend together butter and beef broth or consume and spoon it over the meat before I reheat it.
