Dudestrami with first try at the /Dude's specialty

Well, gave those briskets a good soaking, then a rub, vac-u-seal and an overnight rest.

Basically the Dude's rub...with a couple minor changes

Fired the gosm up was about 20 degrees out...loaded her with apple wood and away we go.

Maintained between about 215-230 for the next 4 hours

Then...Disaster! emergency required me to leave. Had no choice but to remove the strami, foil it...splash some apple juice and bourbon on it, then foiled and in the oven to finish.

By the time I got back, temp was way over what I wanted....I pulled it out and into the fridge. Going to start slicing it in morning, and will be back to post the results, however horrible they may be. Only wanted to go to 185...wound up way too high.mad.gif

Will post final product in a couple of hours.

Its best if you send that to me. I'd hate to see you eat "terrible" 'strami.

Actually, it was not nearly as bad as I feared. The smaller brisket(on slicer in pic) came out just a tad on the dry side, but tasty.

The larger of the two briskets came out perfectly...overall I'm quite pleased, and will definitely made some more when I will not be interupted.

My thanks to the Dude for the inspiration.

Looks really good! Glad to hear that a disaster was diverted.
How do you like have the meat slicer? Seems like a great little tool to have for us carnivors.

I've had that Waring Pro for about ten years. One of the best investments I ever long as you don't try to overload problems. I can slice 15-20 pounds of meat no sweat. I think you can still pick up a comperable model for around 69 bucks.

Great looking Pastrami! No harm going that high. Like you said, might be a tad dry, but surely the taste is wonderful.

What did you do for the rub?

Hopefully the emergency was nothing serious.

The emergency was actually resolved easier than anything else, so...I guess I am truly grateful. Thanks for checking out my Qview folks.

I gotta ask....why does this thread have one star? Does that really mean someONE clicked on "Terrible"??? I dont get why if so??
