Ok, after reading some stuff on the forums here i got to thinking.. Maybe i should fire the smoker up again. Bought a corned beef brisket to make pastrami, and i bought a regular brisket to make..... brisket. After reading WalkingDude's tutorial on pastrami i thought i'd give it a go. I soaked it since about 1 pm yesterday changing the water every 2 hours or so. Its only about 2# so i wouldn't think it would take more than that. But, anyway. After i was done, i put some onion powder on the fat side, and then i put CBP some more onion powder, coriander, and some fenal. My brisket i made a rub out of: Brown sugar, paprika, garlic salt, onion powder, and this cajun stuff i picked up. wrapped that up and let it sit over night. I just fired up the smoker a little bit ago, to get it good and ready.. here is the before pics.. pastami Brisket.. I had a few too many beers last night while grilling.. but, i might just have to take a little hair of the dog.
