    Well, my new found Butcher friend had these marked down from $2.99 to $.99. WOW, and they are brisket flats, not beef rounds.


    The marinade. Vidalia Onion marinade, Webers black Peppercorn rub, and a dash of syrup for good measure. I did the fry pan salt test and it past without soaking.


    This is the marinade.


    All coated and in the fridge till tomorrow night.

    Thanks for watching.

  2. Ron,

    I take the Peppercorn Melange and put it in a ziploc and beat the snot out of the peppercorns with a rolling pin.

    That course pepper then gets rubbed onto the corned beef victim, then I smoke it.

    The peppercorns seem to carmelize into a transcendent, gastronomic nirvana. I am not a professional cook like you are, so I don't know all the chemical and alchemy stuff, but with great help like pros and champs like you, I muddle through and discover some great stuff - like this wonderful Pastrami.

    Pastrami on! all my Kosher friends! It is like buttah - talk amongst yourselves.

    PS - You aren't supposed to eat this stuff - it isn't "healthy". Notice all the fit, gentile guys croak at 45? The old Jewish guys (who eat Pastrami everyday in Ruebens) live to be 94. Pass the Pastrami.
