My wife's cousin came in this week end from Ottawa, with her daughter. Along with the Maple Syrup (I always ask for the Amber and she always bring the "B"), she also brought some SMOKED MEAT.
We sliced it up yesterday and we put it in a steamer to warm it up. The meat was really tasty and moist. It was lean too. I was expecting some fat but not much. I know the cut of meat is brisket, (or is it ?), but the way it was done it didn't have the brisket feel. I tried it again today and I didn't taste much SMOKE. It definitely has the taste of pastrami.
So my question is: Is SMOKED MEAT smoked ? If so, what kind of wood ? Have anyone here ever try to make SMOKED MEAT and get the same results as the Smoked Meat you have there ?
