    I'll be watching this. I love pastrami and I always have better luck with a store bought corned beef over curing my own. Is that your own or store bought?

    Finished late yesterday 

    Made a new batch of rub,this time with the ground Mustard 1 Tbs.

    Rubbed and ready while the jumbo was heating



    It got away from me 275*


    Closed vents and waited,it came down to 250* 

    The meat stalled at 144* with storms approaching I foil tented it.


    It came out of the stall ran up to 186* real fast

    I uncovered it and temp started to drop


    Let it come back up for 2 hrs. checked with tooth pick,decided to pull it.


    Rested for 20 min. cut a slice 


    A little chewy so back into a pan foiled an finished in the oven.

    This is still from yesterday, will slice for Reubens later


    it is very tasty

    When you do,be sure to soak the corned beef and do a few water changes.That will get rid of a lot of salt.Post it up when you do. Thanks for dropping a line.
