Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope you all got to celebrate those tasty food holidays last week, we sure enjoyed them! We are even more excited about the beginning of fall, for so many reasons, but mainly for experiencing the cool, crisp air while being outside cooking up the best recipes the season has to offer. We especially love these Beer Pork Tenderloin and Ground Beef Acorn Squash recipes! Fall is upon us, and it's a great time for getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Pastrami Internal Temp?

I bought a 6 pound brisket today and plan on putting the cure on to make pastrami for next sunday.  Just wanted to give myself a while to field a few different opinions on the internal temp of the finished brisket.  Do I only cook to 165 or take it up to 200 like you would for a bbq brisket?  I plan on doing it at 225 degrees grid temp with a combo of hickory and apple.  Should I plan on the same cook time as a regular brisket?  Apologies for all the questions.  I've never tried to make pastrami before.  Thanks for the feedback in advance.
