I had the hankering for some pastrami and I had a marbly looking tri tip in the ice box, I thought hey, make some reubens out of that!
In to some cure brine and injected after a few days. Had to wait for my new injector to arrive. After a week I took it out and smoked it up..
Out of the brine, rinsed and trimmed.
All seasoned up.
Out of the smoker at 145 IT over some light oak smoke.
Our tomcat "Smokey" sleeping under our iMac with one eye open as make this post..
I'm going to put it in the icebox over night and slice it tomorrow. Should be some good reubens in our future..
