    Hey all, had a small brisky in the freezer & figured it was time to do somethin with it..... I asked my better half, she asked bout some pastrami & so it was on.... It was pastrami time ! :yahoo: So here we go....


    The brisky...


    Had to try out the new Q addition.... The Briner ! It works awesome ! Thanks Adam for the recommend on it ! Thumbs Up


    Mixed up a couple gallons of Pops brine !


    Mixed a cup of water with a couple Tbp of pickling spice (McCormicks)


    Brisky locked down in the brine !


    After eleven days in Pops brine, pulled it out & cut to be easier to work with ! Also to check its cured & it looks good !


    Rinsed off, soaked for 1/2 hr, pat dry & in the fridge til tomorrow night when I'll season & wrap for the TBS Sat morning !

    That Briner looks like a convenient toy! If you don't already have a Spice Recipe you like, below is my Fav. Kind of a blend between NY style and Montreal Smoked Meat...Good Luck...JJ

    Better 'en NY Pastrami Rub

    2T Turbinado Sugar

    2T Black Peppercorns

    1T Coriander Seed

    1T Dill Seed

    1T Dry Minced Onion

    1T Dry Minced Garlic

    1tsp Allspice Berries

    1tsp Mustard Seed

    1tsp Dry Thyme Leaves

    3 Bay Leaves, crumbled

    1tsp Juniper Berries 

    All Spices are Whole and were toasted in a dry pan over Medium heat until fragrant.

    Let the Spices cool then Grind in a cheapo Coffee Grinder until slightly less than Coarse. The Garlic and Onion do not need to be toasted. If grinding do so only slightly as the Minced size is pretty close to perfect for Pastrami.
