i'm going to do a corned beef round for St. Pattys Day and I need some advice.When you do corned beef in a crocked pot or on the stove you simmer the thing for 6 or 8 hours, but what about doing it on a pellet pooper? Bottom round is almost as un-tender as brisket so do I treat it like brisket pulling @ 205 internal? I have seen some receipts for smoked corn beef brisket but nothing for the round. Suggestions please.
Yes, you can smoke until tender like brisket but best move for lean meat, smoke 4 or so at 225, then Steam until done, 2-3 hours more. Use a steamer basket or a roasting rack in a covered pan. Steam low on the stove or 325 oven. You get some Jus as well...JJ

Thank you guys for your responses. I purchased some corn-beef rounds from Costco for St. Paddy's Day but I'm gathering the spices so I can try your home made pastrami Al, thanks for the link. is reader supported and as an Amazon Associate, we may earn commissions from qualifying purchases.
