    What pastrami looks like when you don't have it in the cure long enough

    Still delicious though. Interesting how the uncured portion is the exact shape of the brisket.

    That’s pretty cool looking, actually. You could tell everyone it is your smoke ring.

    I bet Meathead may like to add that picture to some of the curing info on the public site! A picture is worth a thousand words and what not.

      I followed the curing times from the free site. Maybe I was a little tipsy and inputed the thickness of the brisket wrong by .25"?

    That shape is awesomely wicked. FYI I don't throw that expression around lightly.

    The first one I did from scratch was like that, I thought I did the right amount of days... still ate it and it was still good.

        Sometimes if you massage your meat it will help it penetrate better...... did I say that wrong Helps all that saltiness get inside...

          Way wrong. in this case I think he would have needed a deep massage. Of course them dudes are in there and they're really jockeying around 4 position and whatnot, so it looks like a little more time and it would have been a done deal.

        Best of both worlds.

          JakeT is right. May I have permission to post this picture to the free website as an example? I will give you credit (unless you wish to remain anonymous).

            Of course! Thrilled to an AR cautionary tale!

          I've taken to curing for shorter times to just add flavor to any meat without actually corning it. I haven't seen how it is that sodium nitrite changes the flavor and sometimes the texture. And I don't recall the reason the meat turns red.

          Years ago, I ate some cured and smoked Blacktip shark, wow that was good and the meat was pink and translucent.

          Cured some venison last year (doing some now) but did not get all cured, various shapes of individual muscles, and yep, the uncured area was shaped just like the muscle.

              Feature it. New design in pastrami. politically correct, modern, new and improved, Progressive. The salivatingly salty flavors of pastrami make for a wonderful pairing with the crisp, clean, and dry notes of delicious PBR beer. No Pastrami is harmed in making PBR.
