    Meatheads Copycat Katzls Deli Pastrami

    Found a small corned beef flat just a little under four pounds. Soaked it water
    8 hours, changing the water every couple of hours. Let it sit in the fridge for 3 days uncovered. Cooked it yesterday on the Weber Kettle with the slownsear. It maintained temps between 233/275. Stalled at 166F.. Wrapped in foil. Pulled at 203 as it felt like butter when probed. Let it sit in a cooler to 180F then placed in the fridge overnight. Heated it in foil with swiss on top. Removed and placed on a toasted low-catb tortilla with thousand island dressing. (Would have been over the top with some jewish rye but that isn't a choice at this time).
    I have to say this is just a fantastic recipe and tastes just like Katz's. We have been waiting for the Canadian border to open. We live under 3 hours from Montreal and Katz's. My husbands comment
    "we don't have to drive to Montreal anymore".

      There is no better recipe on the site!


        The truth is the best BBQ is in someone’s backyard!


          I agree that is Meathead’s best recipe.


            I'm confused here, Katz's Deli is in New York city and not Montreal, and Montreal is famous for Montreal Smoked Meat and not pastrami.

              You are correct . I should have said Swartz's in Montral.

            Superb recipe as always Meathead; I do a full packer and brine it per M/H recipe for at least 8 days; then the desalination overnight and then dry rub in open refrigerator for at least two days; smoked in Pit Barrel slow 225 F oven temp; get to stall 185 F and either take it all the way to 205 and usually wrap it in foil for the last few hours in the smoker with a little beer on the bottom

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

            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.

Although it is not certified as all-weather, we have tested it outdoors in Chicago weather and it has not delaminated in three years, but there is minor fading.

            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 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!

            Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker

            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’.
