Lazy Man's Pastrami

I am loath to post this because many of you go to exquisite effort for your pastrami.  I just threw this together, but it happens to have turned out good.

Store bought corned beef, rinsed for about an hour in multiple bowls of fresh water.

Yellow mustard and McCormack Montreal for spice.  Done indirect at 250 until the internal was 170.

  • I really enjoy your posts Doc.  A little advice here:  Quit trying to gussy them up with great adjectives like LAZY.  I almost sprained my finger clicking on it so fast! 

    Nice cook Doc!  I've had bad luck with store bought corned beef lately.  I soaked them overnight and changed the water a couple of times, but they were the saltiest things I ever cooked.  I'm glad yours turned out good.

    I like Lazy Man's Pastrami, Doc although we usually soak it a few days so its got a bit more ambition than yours. ;)

    Fellow lazy guys, you might want to be a little more proactive with the rinse for salt, and/or go easy on it in the rub.  I was lucky, mine is just a little salty, but I can see where it could be an issue.

    I went to the stores yesterday and the corned beef was sold flat cut and then a point cut. Which one do y'all prefer? I assume the flat point would be better and it was rectangular so easier to slice, but the point cut was half the price for about the same amount of meat.

    I like the point, but then again that's my favorite part of the brisket.

    I've made Pastarmi this lazy way for a long time and have always been happy with the results.  More recently I tried a wet cured brisket to make Pastrami and they came out even better.  My next attempt was a dry cured one and that was the best yet.  If you're lucky enough to get a good corned beef brisket at the market it will come out great the lazy way.
