    Achieving 3% Brine, equalibrium method, immersed brisket, corned beef

    I want to cure meat, such as a brisket, for corned beef. I want to achieve a NaCl solution using equalibrium brining (meat fully immersed in the brine). I would like to assume the meat is 70% water and include that in the water calculation. But maybe I'll stop doing that. A 10 pound brisket =...

    Flatstrami -vs- Chuckstrami ~ Which Will Come Out On Top?

    Today was a showdown between a Sam's Club "Member's Mark" branded corned beef that I pastramied..., and a 13-day home corned chuck roast that I wet brined and pastramied. Both were in the 4# range. I used the same rub, and cooked at the same time and temp. Both had a pressure finish to an...

    Your Thoughts on Flavor ~ Corned Beef, Pastrami, Montreal Smoked Beef

    I'm not trying to get into a battle of definitions or origins of the above cured meats but I'm curious about the signature flavors you enjoy and why. I can't get beef navel, so let's assume every product uses brisket. Store-bought corned beef is usually saltier and tangier than my home-made...

    Porkstrami ~ Round Two

    In mid-May I posted about a Porkstrami cook where I used the @daveomak injection technique he designed for shoulder and loin 'hams' then used a modified Pop's Brine as a covering brine.... so a combination cure to produce 'corned' pork butt. I took the corned pork butt, seasoned it with my...

    Porkstrami ~ Using A Jazzed-Up Version Of Pop's Brine On Boneless Pork Butt

    In a conversation a couple of months ago about porkstrami I tossed out the idea of using an injectable cure similar to the @daveomak technique of making ham. Dave brought up the idea of using beer in the brine :emoji_thumbsup:. For this test run I combined Dave's ham injection technique with...

    Newbie Corned Beef Questions

    OK, so I've spent the better part of the morning looking at curing brisket for corned beef, smoking times etc. Now that my head has stopped spinning from all of what I've read, here are my questions :) It looks like Pop's brine is a great start, but I would then also add the "pickling spices"...

    Brine went slimy

    Need your help guys, not sure if I chose the right subforum for it though. The thing is, that I’ve cured a couple of pieces of moose meat in order to do kind of slow roasted pastrami in the oven. It has been staying in the brine in the fridge for 5 days and today just before transferring it to...

    My pastrami from corned beef

    Hey All, Yes, a thousand corned beef and pastrami threads this week, well, here's mine ;) I initially was going turn two corned beef flats into pastrami but then added two points as well, when they're only $1.88/lb (additional $1 off/lb vs. sticker price) I really couldn't go wrong. Flats were...

    Hey all, had a couple of store bought corned beef briskets sitting the freezer for a while so I thought I'd try out some cold smoked, sous vide pastrami. I've read several articles on cold smoking the corned beef, but I'm not sure if it's 100% safe. I soaked it for about 8 hours and changed...

    Smoked corned beef for Reuben sandwiches and meatloaf

    I've been doing corned beef packers (commercial) for St. Patrick's day for a few years, and it has become somewhat of a tradition to my family. The packer was kind of a biggie - nearly 23 pounds. The process was simple - using the Traeger set at 250F, and a tube smoker both using GMG fruitwood...
