Smoking Corned Beef - first time

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Morning everybody,

I'm attempting my first smoke of corned beef for pastrami. I did my research and followed others here on what rubs to use. 

Here is what I used:


4 Tbls Fresh ground Black Pepper

2 Tbls Fresh ground Coriander

1 Tbls Paprika

2 tsp Onion Powder

2 tsp Garlic Powder

1 tsp Mustard Powder


I did follow the recommendation of soaking it prior to smoking to remove some of the brine. Final soak time ended up being close to 40+ hours. Weather yesterday kept me from smoking, winds were a killer. 


Its in the smoker this morning temps holding steady between 235-240. Will take to an IT of 190 then foil.
