What to do with 1.7kg leftovers of pork butt?
I decided to make Moldavian Pastrami.

Brine.
2 liters water
1tsp whole black pepper
1tsp whole allspice
5 pcs of clove
2 whole garlics
4-5 bayleafes

Bring to boil. Simmer for 15-20 min. Cool overnight in fridge.
Using equilibrium method calculate salt/pink salt and sugar. Brine as long as needed, in my case it was 5 full days.
Let the pelicle to form.
Clean and chop 7-8 garlic cloves. Using mortar grind it with some black pepper. Apply garlic pepper mix all over meat pieces.
Smoke at 180f till internal 140f.

Never gained an appreciation for snake no matter how it was cooked. On the other hand, love to snack on almost anything. :emoji_smile:
