  • The six pound brisket flat was trimmed to about 1/16 inch of fat and then cut in half to fit in my Food Saver bags. [p]A brine of water, Tender-Quick, garlic powder, and brown sugar was injected into the meat. I then rubbed about 10 cloves of minced garlic into the meat. On top of that, I rubbed a mixture of sea salt, ground cloves, Tender-Quick, black pepper, white pepper, cayenne pepper, Turbinado sugar, dried parsley, dried onion, and pickling spice. This rub was put on real heavy. The meat was placed in the fridge for about 3-1/2 days and turned over twice a day.[p]Pulled meat from fridge, rinsed off the rub under the faucet, and soaked the meat for about 1-1/2 hours in water to remove the excess salt. Let the meat dry and then rubbed a mixture of fresh cracked Tellicherry pepper, Turbinado sugar, fresh crushed whole coriander seed, and a small amount of 90 grade cayenne pepper. Again, the rub was put on heavy. [p]Put the meat on the Egg and used both oak and hickory for smoke. Smoked at about 240 degrees rack temp for 9-1/2 hours and pulled the meat at 182 degrees internal. [p]The meat was served to our guests on a rye bun with a thin slice of swiss and horseradish sauce on the side. It was great!![p]Old Dave[p]

    The local supermarket has some uncooked corn beef (sealed in a plstic pouch with liquid) in the meat case. I might try smoking one to attempt making pastrami.

  • BluesnBBQ,[p]I have not tried it that way and wouldn't know how to adjust my recipe for it. Why don't you see if you can find a brisket flat. I would be more than happy to send you the details on how to cook one up and it will be better than anything you can purchase.[p]Old Dave[p]

    Old Dave,[p]I'm just going to try the supermarket corned beef as an experiment. I figure since pastramie is basically smoked corned beef, this might be an easy way to make it. But I'm also curious about your recipe. I have plenty of time to try both. :)
