Ritchie that looks tender and delicious. I’ll bet that was great with the cabbage and potatoes. Once I get bacon out of the way I plan on doing some pastrami from Pops brine using the same cut. I did it from knuckle last time and the flavor was great but a lot of chewy gristle parts.

Tropics, Nicely done Corned Beef! Did you use any additional spices with Pop's brine? I always use Pop's brine for turkey and it works perfectly for me... but never tried it with whole muscle....

jcam I was not impressed it was tender but not enough fat IMHO.

Looks good Richie . I know what you mean by not enough fat in that cut . I bet smoked it would have been moist and perfect for sandwiches .
Nice work .

I know what you mean Richie. It is great for sandwiches. Not so good for corned beef with cabbage and potatoes. Not enough fat. And it makes for a great Pastrami. Speaking of which. I need to make a trip to the garage freezer. I'm thinking about a hot Pastrami sandwich.
