    Our local Safeway grocery store has round tip roasts on sale BOGO. So I picked up (4) for $48.00. I think that two of them will go into pop's brine for some pastrami. the other two are going to go into the freezer. The fat cap has been trimmed on these so they are really lean. May use the other two for jerky.

    That's what I was thinking too! For the price I should do all four roasts and go get 4 more for the freezer!

    I'm looking forward to seeing how your round pastrami comes out. If sliced super thin, round makes great roast beef, so I'm sure it will be fantastic as pastrami.  Post pics!

    Tonight I threw together a 2 gallon batch of Pop's Brine and put the 4 (injected) round tip roasts into the brine. In ten days or a few more we'll be ready to smoke some pastrami! Better go harvest some juniper berries and get them dried!


    They came socked so I will hang them when I smoke them.

    April 3rd is going to be the smoke day! I'm thinking that I may do 3-4 hours of cold smoke then take them up to 135* IT

    Into the GOSM they go. Full tube of cherry. Currently 85* in the smoker, 87* outside, 5-15 knots of se wind, and thunder clouds looming overhead. Going to cold smoke for a bit and then bring the smoker up to 200*, I hope. Wind may be an issue.


    Rolled roasts in coriander, pepper and mustard seed.

    I pulled the roasts out of the smoke when they hit 165* IT. I didn't get a pick because I couldn't get the flash to work. The iGrill and Mav 732 worked flawlessly. The alarm feature on the iGrill is great, allowed me to sleep until they were done. Sliced pics will be in a few days. I like to let them mellow a bit before slicing and packaging.

    Just curious...why did you decide to go up to 165 IT instead of the 135 IT that was your earlier plan?
