    Can I re-use corning liquid?

    Maybe a dumb question...so forgive me in advance. I am corning the first of three beef bellies (making pastrami) and have the first one (11+ pounds) in three gallon in the fridge. Is it safe / advisable to reuse the corning liquid for a second belly, after the first one is done?

    I would not, for good safety reasons.

      I want to know where you got the beef belly? I want to make some pastrami outta that.

      I would not. You should start with a fresh batch where you are sure of the percentages of the ingredients.

        Okay, that seems sensible. I'll start afresh with each (although it would have been so much easier :-)). In answer to the sourcing question...it took me a lot of calls and cajoling but I found a great butcher in LA who will special order them for me. They have a standing order from me...I haven't made pastrami for a year (it didn't seem right, given everything happening in the meat supply chain), but have had great luck with bellies made into pastrami. They are from "Greater Omaha" (see picture).

          By the way, from what I understand, they are rare because butchers like to break sides down (for economic reasons) in ways that don't yield bellies...my butcher will mail me once in a while and ask me if I want some.

            For fun and information on breaking down beef try Bearded Butchers' videos on Youtube.
