    corned beef to pastrami, is it that easy?

    Thanks everyone for the great information. Mine turned out terrific! I soaked the 3.5 lb corned beef in water for almost two hours. I smoked it at 225 for what turned out to be 9 hours (answers that question). I rubbed it with ground black pepper, coriander and the CB spice pack (powdered)...

    corned beef to pastrami, is it that easy?

    Crickey - a 13 pound corned beef? I've never seen that at Sam's. I purchased the biggest one they had - 3.5 lbs - and will be smoking it today. Had a slight change of plans yesterday but am all set for some tasty pastrami tonight. Slight change of plan - I will soak it in water for an hour...

    Christmas Day Roast Beef (w/photos)

    Since I didn't make this on the grill or in the smoker, I'm not sure if this is appropriate. I oven roasted two eye of round roasts and since I've learned so much from you guys, I thought I would share. This is from a blog post I made this morning. If it's not appropriate, please let me know or...

    Fresh Italian Sausage with Pix

    Looks great. Italian is the only sausage that I've perfected though I've not attempted to make links yet, just bulk. Your recipe looks similar to mine.
