here's the pastrami i did monday, finally cured & sliced. it tasted good to me but maybe a bit heavy on the pepper so next time i'll go w/ 1/2 black & 1/2 white pepper and see how that works.it was my first 1 and it is good though. here's the pic. http://s178.photobucket.com/albums/w...keycook002.jpg

That pastrami looks great. What mix of black/white pepper did you use. I found that white pepper can have a bit of a bite and sometimes overwhelms peoples palates.

i just used the black as per debi's recipe. i was thinking white pepper wasn't as stout. maybe i'll reduce the pepper period as i had to adjust for a smaller brisket. it was precorned btw.maybe it's cause i just took an end piece for the first bite.

It looks fabulous!!!

Definitely give the white pepper a try.

If you want to really experiment, get a sample of the peppercorns that come in different colors and types. Never know.... PDT_Armataz_01_03.gif

strange thing pepper. It goes along harmless enough and all of a sudden it takes off and bites.

That looks soooooo good! You say that was a store bought corned beef though? How long did you soak it in water before you smoked it to get out the heavy salt flavor?

i never soaked it. it was a corned brisket(2.5lb) from walmart.all i did was use the rub & smoked 'er down low & slow.it's not salty @ all. p.s.i went w/ the recipe(post-corning)from deejay's smokepit here's the link. http://www.deejayssmokepit.net/pastrami.htm
