Part of brisket was sticking out of cure


Joined Sep 4, 2015
Brisket flat was in basically the AmazingRibs corned beef cure for two weeks. Was going to smoke and make pastrami. Pulled it out today and found part of it was sticking out of the cure and was brown. It must have popped up somewhere along the way when I would give the container a Jiggle every couple days. The rest of the brisket looks pinkish, but this part is brown. What to do? Scrap? Cut off the brown part?

Cut off that part. The rest should be fine. Ziptop bags are great for curing and no issues withb cure contacting all the meat...JJ
