Had some time for smoker therapy yesterday finally. Had been planning to do some more pulled pastrami to go with my 4 gallons of homemade kraut for Reubens. I scored 14 of these corned beef points a month or so ago @ $1.99 / lbs.

Five of them into a food grade bucket of water overnight to desalinate a little.

Rub is a Katz knockoff recipe from Amazing rubs I’ve used for a long time. I do the version with part powders and part crushed spices. I like those coarse bits on the bark. All rubbed up and back to frig overnight.

When they but temp I threw them in the Cambro for about an hour while the butt was finishing up. After that it was pull time. A couple were a little tighter but pulled with some coaxing while some pulled easily.The largest one was tight enough that I left it whole to slice thin on the slicer later for the freezer. Here is the pulled.

Made a test Reuben for the neighbor.Wide loaf light rye, pastrami, homemade kraut straight out of the crock, Swiss cheese and a homemade sauce. No pics as I was running out of energy with a lot of cleanup left to do. They flipped over it and his guests informed him they’d be moving in based on the pulled pork and sandwich sample LOL. Thanks for looking. Time to get all the food ready for guests in a couple hours.
 
That looks great! At $1.99/lb I don't blame you for stocking up.
Made Pastrami sandwiches for poker night a couple months ago. I used the flat and sliced it.

Heck yeah, Jeff, now THAT'S what I'm talking about!! That will make a fine reuben right there!
Thanks! I’m about to find out in an hour or so. Let’s hope the neighbor was right and its awesome! Honestly I didn’t eat one last night. After king smokes I often have not taste to eat what I cooked that day, kinda weird I guess. I usually murder it the next day.

I’m all about freezer stocking on clearance. We have an awesome place that has crazy deals pretty often. I’m about to need another 20 lbs box of their second quality bacon @ $20 / 10 lbs. They have store ground 80/20 chuck / shank daily for $3.99 too.
Looks absolutely awesome!
Thanks! Planned on doing a plated sandwich pic but was whipped. Long day of cooking lol.

My wife has banned me from meat departments until I cook up half of our packed freezers.

I could stick my face into a pile of that. Great job!
Thanks! It went over well for sure. Sent fixings home so my daughters family could have Reubens again later.
Fantastic work Jeff. Looks incredibly delicious.
Thanks! I nibbled on some pretty tasty. I’m usually playing waiter for guests and just nibble. I’ll murder a Reuben later tonight.
Looks great
Thanks! Your beans were well received too, a big bowl of those are headed to my daughters. My grandson informed her they were his.
