Seems like there are lots of folks doing pastrami lately. Here is one more to have a look at. Picked up a corned beef brisket at the store on sale this week and figure I would do some pastrami for sammies for lunch at work. Soaked it in water for about 12 hours and changing the water a few times to leach out the salt. Got it rubbed up with black pepper, coriander, onion powder, garlic powder, and some pickling spice and then wrapped in foil to chill in the fridge overnight.
Woke up late this morning because of the time change (forgot to set the clocks forward), so I didn't get it in the smoker until 9:00 am. Here is where I am now.
Rubbed and going in the smoker at 9:00 am this morning.
After about 4 hours in
Foiled it at 165* and poured a shot of Shock Top Belgian White beer in the foil.
The old lady dog is salivating at the thought of a treat off the smoker
I will post an update once it comes off. It will go in the cooler for a couple of hours and then into the fridge. I am off tomorrow, so I will slice it and update again in the morning. Thanks for looking!
