Agree with others above on all counts. You get "desensitized" to the smell of smoke when you spend all day in it. Think about the first time you walk into a room with a peculiar smell. Eventually you can't smell it at all. I believe the same thing happens with smoke.
I'm actually the opposite of you though, I think smoked food tastes better for me later on after I've re-heated it and I haven't been exposed to smoke all day.
And also, vacuum sealing and reheating in water is the way to go. I've even taken que that's in the fridge and vacuum sealed it just for re-heating because it really seals in the flavor and keeps the meat from drying out. Ruins bark though, but small price to pay.
