Yesterday we made Pastrami using Third Eye's recipe.

Turned out excellent. Everyone was loving the results.

Placed on the egg at 250 dome.

Did a light smoke with pecan until they hit 150 internal. Took about 5 hours.

At this point they were wrapped in foil and finished in the oven. Took them out at 170 internal temp and rested.


Really moist and full of flavor. Now I want to buy a deli slicer and do this more often.


  • That looks really good! I've only done a couple of flats so far but I need to give a point a try...was afraid it would be too fatty but you've changed my mind. A slicer does make it nice.

    That looks amazing
    Very nice cook :)

  • I've used Thirdeye's recommendation for Pastrami 4 times. Everytime it is perfect. He has some good calls!

    Nice Pastami!! Now I want a Rueben...

    Very, very nice. I tried that recipe out a few months back, and it really is out of this world! Great job! I still have some leftovers in my freezer...may have to pull them out soon for lunch purposes.

    I did one of these about two weeks ago. His recipe is spot on. Makes some great sandwiches. I bought some light and bread and invited some friends over. They never knew you could make pastrami. Glad it turned out great. Manta great sandwiches. Thanks for the picture. Looks like it came out great.
