Never tried pastrami until I saw Barbequeen post one.
It looked so good I had to try it (Thanks Barbe)
Of course, this being my first one I picked up a store bought CB Brisket. 4.5 lbs.
Soaked in ice water bath for 3 hrs, and crushed the season packet a little.
Rubbed with the seasonings and added some CBP
Smoked with pecan @ 225º till an IT of 190º Which was about 8 hrs later.
I bought this one because it had the point and flat together and I was going for flavor! (FAT)
It was great, I think the next one I will cure myself and give it a try.
It would be nice to make pastrami anytime i wanted.
Here it is going on the smoker
Pulled and rested over night in the fridge
Sliced and ready for some Sammie's.
My daughter made a Sammie as I was slicing.
She put it all together on a store bought Onion Roll .......Ms Scars would have been better!
She learned this from Guy Fieri,
I've gotta start turning the channel when she enters the room
It was great.
I vac sealed the rest, but it was all gone the next day anyway!
Thanks for viewing'
