      I love cooking with wine. Sometimes I put it in my food.

      One cannot have too many grills.

      Looks good. That's a flat, not a point, though. DEW

        Not according to the label Dew. I went specifically looking for a flat and they didn't have any. Unless they had all of these mislabeled.

          I think the label is mistaken. In fact, I guarantee it. This is a point:

          You can easily see the difference between this and what you made. Yours made nice slices and had a fat cap. The point didn't.

                Dew, it was shorter and more squat than the flat in your pic. Here's a pic of it prior to trimming and rubbing. What do you think?

                  Still looks like a flat. But particularly the pic you posted of the slices tell me it was a flat. Anyway, you did a great job. My next pastrami will be a flat so it slices better. The point just falls apart unless it's cold when you slice it.

                  If it was a flat, I definitely want to try a point to see how much juicier it would be. This was great, but point is my favorite part of the brisket, so I'm sure it'd be even better.

                I'm doing the same thing as we speak. Desalinated 18 hrs, put my rub on yesterday, smoking Friday. In your evernote pics it really does look like a flat, especially the slices. Hard to say how the butchers trim & label things though.

                  I love making homemade Pastrami I use a brining recipe similar to Meathead's to make the corn beef which I brine for usually 10 days at the minimum from there a slight soaking in water to draw out some of the salt, I rub it down heavy in my pastrami rub and let it sit in the fridge overnight, take out the next day coat some more rub on and the smoker it goes! I brought a meat slicer last year just to get those deli thin slices!! I'm pretty sure I went a week eating nothing but Pastrami sandwiches LMAO!!! I mean breakfast, lunch and dinner LOL! I'm doing some again for St. Patty Day!

                    I don't know .. I think it was a point you cooked. The pictures of the sliced meat reminds me of the bigger muscle strands found in the point. That's my opinion

                        Well I would want to know myself. So I would go back to the store and see if they actually have a flat you can compare too. If they did and it looked the same as your point I doubt I would go back to that place. Of course we all make mistakes and butchers are no exception.
                        But it does look mighty good to me.

                            • Hi, my name is Darrell. I'm an OTR truck driver for over 25 years. During my off time I love doing backyard cooks. I have a 48" Lang Deluxe smoker, Rec-Tec pellet smoker,1 Weber Genesis 330, 1 Weber Performer (blue), 2 Weber kettles (1 black and 1 Copper), 1 26" Weber kettle, a WSM, 8 Maverick Redi Chek thermometers, a PartyQ, 2 SnS, Grill Grates, Cast Iron grates, 1 ThermoPop (orange) and 2 ThermoPens (pink and orange) and planning on adding more cooking accessories. Now I have an Anova sous vide, the Dragon blower and 2 Chef alarms from Thermoworks.

                            The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

                            the good one grill
                            The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

                            The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all!

                            The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

                            The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

                            This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp's dial from 175? to 350?F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin'.

                            Napoleon's NK22CK-C Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It's hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the NK22CK-C a viable alternative.
