I have fallen in love with pastrami so when St Patties day came around last year I stocked up on corned beef when it was on sale. I got a hinkering for some Pastrami a week or so back so I decided it was time to take it out of the freezer and smoke some up. I thawed two corned beef and soaked them over night in water to remove the salt then I rubbed them with some garlic & onion powder, pepper, a touch of Old Bay and the package of seasoning that comes with the meat.
Here are the two corned beef all rubbed up and waiting patiently for the smoker.
Here they are right before they go onto the UDS just chilling out next to the rack of Spares I threw on as well.
Here is the UDS running for the first time with the dome lid attached. Man I love this dome lid and I don't know why I didn't fit this baby months ago to fit my UDS.
Ready to rest in the cooler.
Here is the loot ready for the freezer. Sorry no slicing pics with my slicer.
I have already used one package to make some Reubens (sorry no pics) and they were wonderful. A Reuben sandwich is probably my favorite sandwich by far. Enjoy!
