I have been reading some recent posts from Eggers who have been very happy with ~thirdeye's~ recipe for pastrami, so I decided to try it for myself.
I followed his directions exactly. A four-pound corned beef brisket was pulled and wrapped in foil after 5 1/2 hours. I maintained it in the foil in a warmed cooler for 1 1/2 hours. Served it to the in-laws. Everyone, including me, thought it was just great.
