Smoking cheese and a corned beef packer

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

Ran out of smoked cheese (because I'm lazy), and finally had to start another batch.  While at it, smoked a corned beef brisket for St. Patrick's day for Reubens (our favorite way to have corned beef.

 

We got this at Cash and Carry for a little over $3 per pound


Into the Davy Crockett at 275F until internal of a little over 200F


After foiling for about 2 hours, the pastrami is ready


Man the Reuben sandwiches we made using this juicy pastrami were excellent


Passed the kid test!

 


Meanwhile in a parallel smoke, here are the cheeses of the day: creamy Havarti, two types of Gouda, medium and sharp cheddar, and horseradish


Blocked up and ready to roll. I use a Bradley (OBS) 4 rack and purchased 4 more jerky racks placed upside down for 8 racks total.


Smoking away - used alder pucks and smoked for about 3 hours

 


Packaged up and ready fo go into storage for at least 6 weeks and up to a year or more if it lasts that long

Man that looks tasty! I keep telling myself I'm going to try smoking corned beef. With St Patty's day there may be some sales. Is that all there is to pastrami? Just smoking corned beef?

Thanks for the kind comments, gents thumb1.gif

 

SmokeyMose - as I understand it, smoked corned beef is the essence of pastrami

Great job on the pastrami!

 

Looks like you won't be running out of cheese for a while!

 

Points for a great smoke!
