Default Is a bottom round beef roast worth smoking?

I'm going to pick up a ribeye roast this weekend and saw that Kroger's has the bottom round beef roast on sale for $2.99/lb. Is this a piece of meat worth smoking or is it to tough to ever become tender. I'm running the bandera for the ribeye and some other items and figured I could make room for it if it can get tender. The price seems good.

Same here. Pull it at 125 and rest. It will climb to 130.

I like to do bottom round to a little higher than those above, 130 internal and it will carry to 135 - 140, I also like to smoke it at 200 - 225 instead of 225 - 250 grate temperature.

I rest it tented for 20 - 30 minutes, then put it through the electric slicer, mind your fingers and cut it thin as the others said.
