I make this fairly often.. it's one of my favorites
For the turkey pastrami I mix..
5 cloves of garlic minced
1/4 cup of brown sugar
1/3 cup of paprika
2 TBS cracked black pepper
1 tsp of powdered ginger (I used fresh minced)
1 tsp of mustard seeds
1/4 cup of kosher salt
and 1/3 cup of crushed corriander

Cover the turkey breast with the mixture, then wrap and chill overnight. Best to chill in a bowl to catch any drippings.




Then onto the Memphis Pro with a skillet of beer bread. I brushed the top of the bread with butter and sprinkled with minced onions...
I started with a low smoke then raised the temperature to 325F. Brought the turkey up to an internal temp of 170, then let it rest.
I just rap the top of the bread to see when it is ready (sounds hollow)

Beer bread..mix 3 cups of self rising flour with
1/4 cup of sugar
a bit of salt
and one beer





I made a smokey cheese disc by shredding some of my favorite cheeses together... let them smoke until melted, then chilled...





I split the bread and started with a layer of pastrami, then my smokey cheese disc...



caramelized onions...



crisp bacon...



pretty green stuff to make it look healthy...



I slathered the lid with a creamy horseradish sauce...



Best to make this when you have company... lol It makes several servings!



Thanks for looking!

That's just a beautiful sandwich, Jeanie!  Did you ever cook anything that wasn't perfect?  Just asking.

Looks great,

I was wondering if you did the chesse in a large batch like a couple pounds how it would turn out have you ever tried that? 

Seems like it would work out if you did not loose too much moisture.

Thanks Nick!  I've not tried a large batch, just the thin ones..  I cold smoke blocks of cheese and combine them later by shredding together.  You might be right about the moisture problem.  The hotter smoking temperature might draw too much moisture out of something that big.

If you give it a try, keep me posted and I will do the same!  Thanks!!

Sounds like a deal I might try that in the next week or so and I will let you know.  I am having a hard time getting really good cheese here as our local dairy that made cheese was hit by a tornado and now they are not making cheese any more.  That really sucks as it was probably the best cheese I have ever had.
