My first smoke with a 22" WSM - Pastrami

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

My Weber Smoky Mountain Cooker finally arrived! I decided to do a pastrami for the first cook. The smoker was easy to set up, and easy to use (although the jury's still out regarding dumping the ashes).

 

I have a few corned beefs in the freezer from the last St. Pattys day sales, so I grabbed a 4.5 lb.

To my surprise, unlike a couple of others from this batch, it was a really nice cut of meat & well trimmed.

and cooked it about 3 1/2 hrs to an IT of 167. Then wrapped it and let it go until 183.

Now it's in the fridge waiting to be steamed later today to an IT of 200-205. I don't know if I can wait for our company before trying it.

 

Here it is waiting to be wrapped and put in the fridge.
