I had a party this weekend and was doing pulled pork so thought I'd try pulled pastrami also, turned out GREAT! I've done pastrami 2 other times, smoked then steamed the next day and then sliced, so I just thought if I steamed longer I could pull it the same as pulled pork. So I had 3 corned beefs and soaked them in fresh water and rinsed them off good and used the McCormick pepper medaly that I've used before and a little garlic powder and smoked them with hickory till they got to 160, I did this on friday night. Saturday I put them in the steamer at 11:00 and steamed them till about 6:30. Took them out and just used my hands to pull it all apart and man was it awsome! Most people said they liked the beef better than the pork, and I thought the port was the best I've ever done. Now that I'm getting a little more comfortable with beef, i've the pastrami and a few chuck roast, I think the next logical step would be to brine my own brisket for some strami.

Yes out of the box for sure. and you have to get some if we could give you some. Now I don't know if you can top some homemade corned beef to start with. That should be next on your list. I know that Ilove my play on a corned beef from scatch.
