Here's one way to corn beef or venison.
corned beef or venison
This will do 4 to 6 lbs of meat
5 TBS Tender Quick
2 TBS brown sugar
1 TBS black pepper (ground)
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp ground bay leaves
1 tsp ground allspice
1/2 tsp garlic powder
Trim fat from meat. Mix all ingredients together, rub into all sides of meat. Place meat in plastic bag or glass container, refrigerate. Let meat cure for 5 days per inch of meat thickness.
Rinse in cool water.........You can slice and fry it or cook in crock on low til tender.
if you want to make pastrami smoke it low for 6 to 8 hours, depending on how big it is.
I smoke at around 220 degrees, use hickory or apple or both, pull the meat off at 170 degrees, wrap and let it rest for a couple of hours.
There are a LOT of corned beef recipes, they are all good. This is just the one I have been using for a long time
Make sure you rinse the meat before cooking to get rid of some of the saltiness.
