Successful Pastrami smoke w/ Dutch's Wicked Beans

Discussion in 'Beef' started by mrpinkdon'ttip, Jul 28, 2009.

  1. Last weekend was fortunate enough to fire up the ECB and make another batch of my youngest girl's new favorite: pastrami. I had been dying to make Dutch's Wicked Baked Beans and I thought the drippings from the brisket & rub would add terrific flavor.

    First soaked for about 20 hours, changing the water a few times through. Here it is 'knocking the chill off before applying rub.

    Here is the rub from the coffee mill: whole corriander, black & green peppercorns, whole clove & garlic powder.

    My first attempt using the Minion method, still need to work on that.

    Dutch's Wicked Beans with some slight mods based on what I had on hand: pork & turkey sausage instead of bacon, pickled jalapenos, the rest according to recipe. Threw a few bone-in chix breasts on for dinner to go with the beans while the brisket would be sleeping.

    The ECB is fired-up to 235 and holding steady in its wind-break. Time to further test the camping chair / cold oat soda / good book combination whilst behind the garage.[​IMG]

    Below after 5 hours, and one additional chimney of coals. The brisket takes some great sear lines and crusts wonderfully!

    Beans & Chix Breast to be served with salad. Brisket foiled & returned to smoker for longer "nap."

    The final result of wafer-thin sliced peppery goodness! Ready to steam & pile on sandwiches.

    Thanks to Dutch for the BEST beans I've ever tasted or served! Thanks to all the previous pastrami posts, tips & continued support![​IMG]

    If you haven't yet tried to smoke pastrami yourself, I cannot encourage you strongly enough to give it a try.

    Great job on the pastrami MrPink.
    As many members know, smoking pastrami is one of the greatest things you could ever do with your smoker, and as The Dude said, you just can't imagine, so good, Amen Brother!

    Seriously folks, if you have a to-do list pastrami is one of those things that should truly make it's way to the top, and once it gets there it is sure to stay.
    Congrats on the great smoke, great it is your daughters new favorite thing, she must have a great palate.
