First pastrami

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

After reading and drooling over pastrami posts I finally made mine!

 

 

*

 

Started with 4.25lb corned beef which had 50% lower sodium.

 

*

 

Applied coat of mustard and then garlic powder,onion powder, lots of cracked black peppercorns and cracked coriander.

I let it sit in the fridge for 48hrs.

 

 

*

 

Into the mes30 for just over 5 hours in temps ranging from 250-275. Used apple chips in the tray.

 

 

*

 

Pulled at 180F. Had to slice some before wrapping it up and into the fridge! It turned out spectacular.

Thanks to everyone here for this great forum!!!   :yahoo:   ----Rich

Just went by Walmart but all the had was the brisket itself, which I'll end up doing my own from scratch but since it takes time I just want to get it brined already, I'll try a different walmart, anyways here is 9am so it might be to early and not fully stocked yet.
