Who likes Pastrami? W/Qview

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Well, I made one of these last week and it was so good, I had to make another.

I started out with a corned beef I got at Sams Club. 3.84 lbs.

I soaked it ice water for 6 hours, with a change in water after 3 hours to get the excess salt out.

Took it out of the water and dried it off. Rubbed it with molasses to get the spices to stick good.

All spiced up with a blend of Coriander, Black Pepper, White Pepper, Mustard Seed, Onion & Garlic powder.

Into the MES smoker it goes, at 225*

All done after about 6.5 hours, and sitting on the counter to rest. Took it to 165* At this point, there was only 2.3 lbs. left.

After sitting in the fridge all night, I sliced it up this morning. Man is this stuff good!! Going to have this on toasted French bread with deli mustard and Swiss & Provolone cheese melted on top. Mmmmmmm

Looks great Dave!

Care to share the measurements of the spices? This is on the long list of things to try. Thanks!

Looking good - it is amazing how much they shrink up.

Sure, but I am always trying new blends. On this one I used 3 TBS CBP, 2 TBS coriander ( cracked), 1 TBS Mustard seed (cracked), 1 TBS each of white pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, & paprika.

Looking good Tx!

Great looking cut of meat, and the finished product is impressive. I've done a few 'strami smokes this summer but hadn't heard of rubbing with molasses applying the cracked spices. Thanks for the tip & for sharing the Q-view!

They may shrink a good deal, but that just means the flavor is that much more concentrated : )

Aside to Pineywoods - Glad to see you back on the boards today and posting. Hope your health continues to improve.

Me too, me too!

Looks great by the way, nothing better than smoking your own pastrami. Went to grab a full packer the other day to cure and smoke but of course they were all out, delivery day is tomorrow so crossing my fingers on that.
