    1st time pastrami

    So last weekend I decided to try my hand at pastrami. The week prior, I portioned a whole packer brisket into three pieces and used the point to brine for corned beef. When it was done, I seasoned it up and let it sit for a couple days in the fridge.

    Then on Sunday morning it went in the smoker. It finished up around 6:30 that evening and I let it rest for about hours prior to slicing. The rest of the week, we've been having lots of Reuben sandwiches. This weekend I'll be doing another with the last half of the flat that has been brining all week. Not a bad turnout and hoping for some more to come!

    Looks awesome, well done! Be careful, though - I get more requests for pastrami than anything else from my friends and family. It seems to be addictive.

              I used both the corned beef and pastrami recipes here on the site.

                    It was tough, but wanted to try and enjoy it as long as possible. Next one goes on tomorrow!

                  Beautiful Pastrami! I need to do that again soon. Never did the point either, so maybe I need to change that.
