oh my!!!eye of round done corned beef/pastrami style

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Due to brisket prices being insane here. I set out for a different alternative. I started out with a 3lb eye of round roast. Then Cured it for 10 days with TQ and pickling spices, smoked till 137. All I have to say is WOW! Dont be afraid of the eye of round. It did not dry out abit.

I used a Table spoon TQ per pound. I cheated on the pickling spice,I just bought Tones brand pre mixed pickling spice. After the 10 day cure,I soaked the roast for 2 hours in cold water to draw some of the salt out. Then I smoked at 230 over apple and hickory till 137. I also did not foil after the smoke,I just put the roast on a cooling rack.

I was going to foil but my temp was rising FAST! and it would of been well done if I foiled. If I was to foil I would probably do it at 120-125,but I really dont think there is a need to with this.

I used a half a bottle of the tones pickling spice. next time I will probably only use 1/4. because it seems just to be a hair strong on the clovey taste. Other then that it is perfect!

Good cure all the way, and beautiful coloring!

Nice job there Rocco, I've done a few different cuts of beef for corned beef due the crazy price of brisket here also, but have yet to do a round. After seeing your q-view I guess I'll be trying it next.

What a great idea! I like the nice round slices you get from an E.O.R. I'm going to give this a try sometime!
