This morning, my wife told me that she planned to make Corned Beef in the slow cooker. I offered to smoke it instead. Any excuse to use my new Meater thermometer.
10 hours in the MES30 and it turned out great!
Sandwiches tonight, and hash in the morning!
Looks great. Nice and juicy. I usually cure my own beef then smoke but I am going to do two store bought shortly. GFS has huge briskets already cured and very well trimmed for $3.69 / lbs. couldn’t turn that down
I do this every year after St. Paddy's day when all the corned beef goes on sale post holiday.
That's a great time to pick them up really cheap. Costco also sells nice big corned Top and Bottom Round roasts.
I tried smoking one of them once but I didn't soak it first. It came out way too salty. This year, I'll be sure to soak
it first. (the flats I did always turned out good without soaking as long as I got it up to 195-200)
