Next rub the seasoning into the brisket on all sides.

Put the brisket into a zip lock bag and wrap with clear wrap, Try to get as much of the air out as you can. The brisket will go into the fridge for, 4-5 days. Try to turn at least 2 times a day

I can't wait till this thing is done. Yu have the right start som far. Now I thought that the flat is made into the Corned beef nd the point is normally made into pastrami. Pastrami usually is pretty fatty like the point. Every pastrami that I ever had was pretty fatty to me.

Rinsed the first rub off and soaked in cold water bath 2x to take some of the saltiness out.

Had to re think the pastrami. Rubbed all the large dry off, re made and ground fine and re applied. Added a water pan to the MC, more lump and took the heat to 250*.

That looks delicious. Your pretty good with a knife too. Looks like you sliced those on a meat slicer. 
 
Nice knife skills.  That looks great.  How did you come up with the recipe?  Is the TQ amount based on weight?  Do you use that mix for corned beef, and then just carry it to pastrami?

Again Qview is great, enjoy the sammies.
 
Thanks everyone.

The TQ is based on a 6-7 lb flat. Have not done a corned beef, wife not to fond of it.

I been collecting and sharpening knifes since i was 14.

Al

I dont even have a meat slicer...
