    Pastrami cook... steam next day?

    I am making pastrami for reuben's tomorrow night, following Meathead's recipe for Katz's pastrami (using a store bought piece of corned beef). I want to smoke to the stall and then steam. I've done it that way before and was happy with the result. But this time I am considering smoking today (Friday) and steaming tomorrow (Saturday) for Saturday night dinner. Anybody have thoughts on whether waiting 24 hours to steam will have a negative impact on the final result?

    I'll bet it'll work great that way.

      Should be fine. Adjust the steaming time a little bit for the fact that it's starting cold but the results should be great.

        I agree it should work fine.

          Reubens, My favorite sandwich, and pairs well with PBR.

            I would think it should turn out just fine but you will need to offer comments and pics of the final product.

              Should work ok, recall a recipe that actually called for overnight in the fridge uncovered before steaming. I'm lazy and I've found just smoking it to temp/tender works very well. Just for an option for next time, and develops an excellent bark as well

                Done exactly that, and it works very nicely. You'll be fine!

                  It works just fine, that's what I do if I plan on steaming. With the store bought corned beef flats seem to benefit more from steaming or a sous vide finish than point cuts do, I usually just take points to probe tender on the smoker and cambro.
