**My try at Rivastrami** - Page 2

Here ya go I got it from Rivets post but here is a copy

3 1/2 Cups Water (I used distilled from a jug in the fridge)
4 TBSP Juniper Berries
4 TBSP Black Peppercorns
2 TBSP Mustard Seeds
1 TBSP Coriander Seeds
2 TBSP Brown Sugar
1 TSP Garlic Powder
1 TBSP Fennel Seed (didn't crush these seeds)
1 TBSP Whole Rosemary Leaves
2 TBSP McCormick Pickling Spice
About 5 or 6 Mexican Bay Leaves
2 TBSP TenderQuick


3 TBSP Coarse Ground Black Pepper
1 TBSP Ground Coriander
1 TSP Ground Thyme
2 TBSP Garlic Powder
3 TBSP Brown Sugar
1 TBSP Hungarian Hot Paprika
1/4 Cup TenderQuick

Be aware that this amount was not quite enough rub in my book, for such a big brisket. If the packer had been 10-12 lbs it would have been fine. Although the rub covered it all, I just would have liked it caked on a bit thicker on the meat....just opinion.

Loading trimming, brining and rubbing pics as I type. Will post them soon!

Great smoke so far! Love those burnt ends.
Whenever I do pastrami I cure the point as well and turn it into pastrami bites...I think 4 more days left on mine curing in the fridge.

Ok finally pulled at 170-ish not quit positive because I am using my good probe on the sausage I am making right now. The burnt ends were tossed again in some head country. and sliced a couple pieces of the pastrami for pics. I will slice the rest tomorrow.....This stuff was outstanding. I like my pastrami cold so tomorrow will even be better for me. The burnt ends are always a hit. had to bag some up real quick before they went missing.
Thanks to all of you doing your own pastrami for giving me the GO I needed to do my own. WELL worth it.

still steamy

sliced up for your viewing pleasures

And the burnt ends

Don't know which is better, the perfect food or the perfect pictures. You did outstanding cooking, buddy and have earned way more than the points we are authorized to give.

Congratulations on your skill!
