So here it goes... I waited patiently until it reached 203 IT.... Got all prepared...



Time to pull and start slicing....




Then the sandwich stuffing..

.




Served up with some fries for that Katz's deli experience... Wish I had a wild cherry soda to complete it but the cold Blood Orange Pale Ale was a nice substitution. I urge everyone to try this if you haven't already...and for the love of all things holy exercise patience and go through the steaming process a few days after the smoke. Melt in your mouth, juicy heaven. Thanks again for watching and remember everyone..only a couple of more days to buy reasonably priced corn beefs so you can try this!!!

Thanks guys! Definitely the best thing I have smoked so far. But as with everything I cook, I can't take all the credit. Great tips from all of you here made it possible and of course the website I mentioned. Haha alright, I'll stop before this sounds like an award show acceptance speech...cue the music. Hahah but seriously, thanks for the compliments.

I just made my first batch of pastrami too. It wasn't as tender as I wanted but it has great flavor and texture. Also I have to say these people are a great resource for anyone wanting to learn smoking and curing meat.

Looks great and like you said for under $2 you can't beat it. Picked up a couple extra also.

Follow the AmazingRibs.com instructions and it will come out really tender. It will be a little chewy right off the smoker even if your bring it to 190-195, that's why the steaming process is an absolute necessity.

Oh yeah also, the point cut pastrami is what was recommended because it has more fat and is less likely to dry out during the long smoking process.

I steamed my pastrami on the stovetop and it was delicious so I used it for a Reuben and was pleasantly surprised. I started with a brisket and used half for this the rest will be regular corned beef.

Looks great! The steaming step definitely tenderizes it even further.
