    Brisket to Corned Beef to Pastrami

    What do you do when you have a full packer and want to wind up with pastrami?

    Use the whole brisket.

    Use only the flat, do something else with the point.

    The packer I currently have is about 16 lbs untrimmed.

      By the time you trim it will be perfect.

          I like point. Wife likes flat. I will use either because I don’t really need a full packer worth of pastrami at any given time.

          I voted point, because the deckle makes the best pastrami. But the deckle/point makes the best everything, imho.

            Lots of times if I'm planning corned beef or pastrami (or both) I don't even buy a packer. Just flat.

              I actually did this mother's day weekend, I smoked the point and made pastrami with the flat. Pastrami is great and unique with so many cuts, I would choose based on the other cook. Do you want burnt end or sliced flat?

                I separate the point and flat, cure them separately. I like to desalinate for about 8 hours, apply the rub for 48-hours and then smoke it until about 202 F. I skip the steaming step altogether.
