I bought an unfrozen Reuben cured corned beef brisket flat. I cut one end off for corned beef & cabbage which my wife has her own recipe.
I want to do the other part on the pellet grill. Beings how this is already brined, any suggestions for the rub & will I need to soak it to remove some of salt?

I would soak it for an hour or two changing water every half hour. Pat dry and rub with ground coriander cracked black pepper and garlic. Then smoke at 250F until probe tender.

Soaking is dependent on the salt content in the beef. I've had some that were salty as all heck, and others that weren't that salty at all. I normally go overnight with water changes every couple of hours while I'm awake. For the rub I'd use a good pastrami rub. There are a few options out there.
