    Close to Katz Pastrami recipe question

    I want to make a corned beef from scratch using a brisket flat and the Meathead corned beef recipe and then take it to Pastrami using the “Close to Katz” recipe. Do I need to desalinate first? If so, how long? Thanks!

    Yep, I always desalinate.

    Take the brisket out of the cure, then let it sit in a vat of fresh water for 8 hours. That will pullout enough of the salt to make it just right.

    Good luck! You will love it. It is my favorite recipe on the site! Get ready for awesomeness.

    Yes, I usually desalinate overnight, so between 8-12 hours. It is required or your meat will be too salty.

        Hey I never doubted it! Going to pick up a Prime packer this weekend!

      I'm doing this recipe for this weekend, unfortunately I didn't get it in the brine until Sunday, cooking on Saturday. The recipe calls for 5-7 days in the brine, 8 hours desalinate, and 2 days with rub. If you had to cut a couple days, where would you do it? Brine it Sunday-Thursday, desalinate overnight, rub Friday and smoke Saturday? Or Brine Sunday-Friday, desalinate overnight, rub Saturday morning before it goes on the smoker? Either way will be way better than the store bought corned beef I smoked last year!

        That sounds like a sound plan. You want to make sure the brine has a chance to do its thing and penetrate fully, so spend the most time on brining. Next would be desalinating, making sure you change the water 2-3 times. Rub occurs just prior to cooking, I don't see the need to waste additional time on that.

      I just did this with a store cured brisket point. I soaked it overnight, changing the water once. I rubbed it right before smoking it. Salt level was fine and the rub adhered with no issues.

      Blackstone Rangetop Combo: Griddle And Deep Fryer In One


      The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, grilled cheese, and so much more. And why deep fry indoors when you can avoid the smell and mess by doing it outside!
