    Got the pastrami sticks done and on a 2 hour bloom. Will cut later and do a couple day fridge rest so the flavor can marry.

    I wonder...   how do you think they would turn out if you didn't stuff them...   used a jerky gun and smoked them flat on racks instead of hanging...  

    just wondering?

    I think they would turn out just fine.
