Got a 5# Corned beef at Kroger. Been dying to try my hand at making Pastrami.
Soaked it for a good 12+ hours with 2 water changes.
Did my rub preparation as follows:
Light coating of Dijon Mustard.
3T Course black Pepper
3T Coriander Powder
1T Smoked Paprika
1t Garlic Powder
1T Mustard Powder
Wrapped it all up in Saran Wrap and has been sitting in the refridge overnight. Due to time and schedule, may not get it in the smoker til tomorrow morning.
Plan on using Apple with a bit of Hickory in the AMNPS and taking it to 165* IT. Will let it rest after that.
Any thoughts on steaming it with the Crab/Shrimp Boil? I've never used it before and was curious if it's worth it.
Thanks for any suggestions.
