    I soaked the brisket for 10 days in
    • 6 cups water
    • 1 cup coarse kosher salt
    • 1 cup (packed) golden brown sugar
    • 1 1/2 tablespoons Insta Cure no. 1*
    • 1/4 cup pickling spices
    • 6 Tablespoons chopped garilc
    • 1 6- to 8-pound flat-cut beef brisket, trimmed, with some fat remaining

    I cut down the salt from last time. It was way too salty. Turned it over every day in the brine.

    The RUB is
    * 2 1/2 tablespoons kosher salt
    * 4 tablespoons paprika
    * 3 tablespoons coriander seeds
    * 3 tablespoons brown sugar
    * 2 tablespoons black pepper
    * 2 tablespoons yellow mustard seeds
    * 1 tablespoon white pepper
    * 5 tablespoons granulated garlic

    Going to smoke it when i get home from brunch at Dakota's

    Very nice looking pastrami. I wanted to do one for St Patrick's Day but didn't get around to it.

    I have always shied away from using metal when dealing with curing or brining, but it looks like you do not have any problems doing it. No off taste or metalic tastes imparted????

    That looks wonderful. Sounds like a great recipe. Good job
  14. After brining for 10 days do you just put the rub on or do you rinse it off first? What about drying? Just trying to get some more info because I am thinking of trying this. Thanks.

    I only pulled out of the brine,washed then rubbed. Because I cut down the salt in the brine.Did not have to soak.I did let dry before I put the rub on.
