    Ready to be sliced and vacuum packed.

    Made up 13 vacuum packs for 2 big sandwiches each.  Momma is happy!  We'll be in Reubens until next Spring.  [​IMG]


    Approx. 15#s worth of corned beef/brisket.

  11. Have any of you done pastrami in a little chief?  I plan on smoking mine this weekend, and it's either my little chief or indirect on the coal grill.

    As long  as its cured you can use your Chief smoker. Its going to be a long smoke due to the lower heat output. You may have to finish it by steaming or in a higher temp oven or pit.
     
  13. I kinda figured, just wanted to ask.  Also I plan on steaming it to finish it off.
