    Corned Beef Brisket in the brine

    I made homemade corned beef last year following MH's recipe. It was so good the family demanded an encore. I just trimmed am 8lb flat from our local BJ's. It will stay in the brine until the 17th. Try it. You will like it!

    I've been brining mine for a week, now. Can't wait to try it! Good luck with yours!

      It never fails. Looking for big briskets for smoking, all I find are tiny ones. Now, looking for smaller briskets for corned beef (don't need 14# of it!), all I find are gi-normous briskets.

      ARRGH.

        Same thing here, so I bought a 13# packer and separated the point from the flat. It's all in the brine now. I'll use the flat for St. Patty's corned beef and continue with the point to make Meathead's pastrami.

          Finally got the beef in the brine! Stopped by my regular grocery store for a couple of items and of course cruised by the meat lumps to see what might be hiding there. They had CAB "brisket roasts" which were simply whole packers cut crossways into lumps of about 3 pounds. The Mrs. didn't want a whole lot of corned beef, so I grabbed one lump. The price would have made me wince if I was buying a whole packer, but it still beat the prepared corned beef prices.

          It's 7 days to St Paddy's Day so it should be OK.
