corned beef / pastrami

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I made my first pastrami. It was pretty good.

First I made the corned beef.
2 TBS Tender quick
2 tsp. paprika
3 cloves of minced garlic
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon mixed pickling spices
1 cup salt

It was a 2.7lb brisket flat let it set for 12 days.

The rub:
3 TBS Coarse ground pepper
1 TBS Paprika
½ tsp red pepper
2 TBS coriander

Smoked with hickory to 180º I should have went up to 200.
I made a few of hot slices as you can see, but let sit in the fridge overnight

Well I only see one MAJOR MISTAKE........

You only made one! eek.gif What on earth were you thinking? Now get back in the kitchen and start making more!

All in jest, all in jest.icon_mrgreen.gif

I am waiting for my schedual to settle down to a steady helter skelter so that I can do up a few for myself. I have all of the spice tubs and brining containers set aside just waiting for the moment that I get the all clear.

Yummmmmmm Puh straaaaaah meeeeee! Drool.......slurp!

I would smoke it to about 190º so it would be more tender.

Other than that I really liked it. Great with mustard and cheese!
