ID:	462493 Hats off to Bro. Meathead’s Katz’s Pastrami recipe! Best I’ve ever tasted. My next door neighbor is a professional chef and said the balance between the rub and smoke was right on. The post smoke Sous vide is genius and makes for moist, tender pastrami. Thanks to this awesome forum for sharing these great cooking methods.

I have a 48" Lang Deluxe smoker, Rec-Tec pellet smoker,1 Weber Genesis 330, 1 Weber Performer (blue), 2 Weber kettles (1 black and 1 Copper), 1 26" Weber kettle, a WSM, 8 Maverick Redi Chek thermometers, a PartyQ, 2 SnS, Grill Grates, Cast Iron grates, 1 ThermoPop (orange) and 2 ThermoPens (pink and orange) and planning on adding more cooking accessories. Now I have an Anova sous vide, the Dragon blower and 2 Chef alarms from Thermoworks.

      I've seen 2 amazing ribs recipes for pastrami.

      Did you use this one?
      https://amazingribs.com/tested-recip...ts-close-katzs

      Or this one?
      https://amazingribs.com/tested-recip...astrami-recipe

      or some combination?


      Every time i look at the close to katz recipe I get discouraged by the steaming step. Is it possible to use sous vide instead of the steaming step, but still follow the close to katz recipe?

        I do same as DeusDingo. For me the steaming is more tradition that any measurable benefit to the end product.

        Neither exactly. I followed Meathead's "Close to Katz's" & used his rub recipe Here's where I deviate from Meathead's. I used plum wood and smoked the beef to 170F internal. Then I put it right into the sous vide for 4 hours at 195F. I got this method here in the pit and I apologize for not giving the credit to that BBQ master, but I forget who it was. Whoever you are, thanks!!

      No doubt it is the best Pastrami recipe out there. Just did a second one myself, which reminds me, it’s lunch time.

          The sous vide recipe is sous vide first then finish on smoker.

            If we're going to invoke me... I dunno. I haven't made a pastrami. I think I would do the meathead almost katz, only sub sous vide for the steam. But I could see cure-smoke-sous-smoke.

            I do the post smoker sous vide. One can skip the sous vide/steam and finish it off in the smoker all the way too.

ID:	480524 I bought 20+ lbs of corned beef after St Patrick's Day and tossed it in the freezer. Turning about 11 pounds into pastrami this week, just put on the rub and planning on firing up the smoker Thursday. I made enough to share with friends and family. That first batch disappeared rather quickly!😋
