    This is something that once you have it you'll never eat store bought pastrami again. I pulled min eout the smoke about 2 hours ago and it's every bit as good as everyone has siad it would.

    Soooo....you're going to fire it up then make a 200 mile drive, man that is a trip. At least the pastrami will be close to finished by the time you get back.

    Well Mrs Scarbelly hijacked the camera for a few days during Christmas to take pictures of the 9 grandkids so the qview is a little late.

    Turned out great - there will be more in the future
    Thanks Jay

    Add me to the list of point givers. Do you remember what the precooked weight was on that? You got a lot of slices out it.

    Glad you liked it and glad I could help. Gotta give some credit to oneshot for deeming it the "Dudestrami" though. I'm not nearly that creative.

    [​IMG]for a successful first pastrami!

    It was about 4.8 lbs - I sliced it with my 15 year old Rival slicer. It is not one you want to use every day but works for small jobs

    Thanks to everyone for the points and comments
