    So I tried Pastrami (venison) for the first time and had posted about a problem with brine curing.  I was afraid it didn't cure evenly.  However, I smoked it last night and it seemed to have turned out great.  Only thing is, the recipe called for rinsing after the brine for 2 minutes.  It turned out a little salty so I would probably soak it for an hour or so next time.

    My mother in law made some homemade sauerkraut that went with it PERFECTLY!

    Thank you Leah and c farmer!

    I was worried about the uneven look after brining but they all turned out pink so I assume they all cured.
