    Another Pastrami Question

    For those who cook pastrami all the way to 200°+ on the smoker, do you eat it right away, or do you rest it for any appreciable amount of time?

    Its gotta cool a bit or it can fall apart while slicing. I usually wrap in foil and put it in the oven turned off for an hour or so.

      Thanks. I was just wondering if you needed to rest it for a day or 2 like with MH's original recipe. To me that would kind of defeat the purpose of cooking it all the way, but wanted to be sure.

    Treat it like a brisket. Cambro for an hour or two.

      I let it sit for a while but it shouldn't shred if you treat it as the brisket it is and look for the ol' probe tender around the 200deg mark

        I smoked then fridge for a day as Planned eat for family next day.
        Steamed for an hour or so day of eating.
        Came out pretty good as first try.

          I give it 100% the same as a brisket, including faux cambro hold time of 1-2hrs. Tough pastrami isn't as delicious IMO. Pro tip: much easier to slice on the slicer tomorrow out of the fridge.

            That would be great, if I had a slicer. 😁

          Pastrami sliced thin, pile high between grilled Rye Bread, add Sauerkraut, and 1000 island. Taters, and PBR on the side.,

            Yeah. I don't do kraut or 1000 Islands/Russian dressing. I know, I know. . .🥺😣😳 I just like my pastrami hot on a roll (and I'm learning to like rye if it doesn't have caraway seeds) with a spicy brown deli mustard.

            I made homemade Russian dressing once. I could get it down, but didn't love it by a long shot.

        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!

        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’.

        The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted


        Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart 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 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

        The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy


        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.

        Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

        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.
