    Best pastrami ever.

    I made my pastrami from sirloin .
    i got the recipe  from solaryellow and an idea from  a friend of mine . so for my brine i will replaced the honey with maple syrup .
    i use  for  5 lb meat 
    1 gal water
    1 1/2 cups kosher salt
    1 1/2 cups brown sugar
    2 TBS pickling spice (the original is 1 TBS) 
    1/2  cup honey (this time maple )
    1/4  cup minced garlic
     3 tsp cure#1
    inject the meat with the brine .
    leave the meat in the brine for 2 weeks in the fridge .
    dry clean the meat .
    i  cover it with 2 parts coriander 1 part b pepper 1 part garlic powder .
    smoked at 225 f till IT 145 .








    Thanks
