<p />I'm sure there are plenty of feasts planned for today. So at your house ... what kind of St. Patrick's Day meal is on tap? Heheee.[p]At my place the pastrami's are seasoned and have rested overnight. I'll serve them along with a traditional braised corned beef. The sun is just coming up, so I'm ready to light-up the large.[p]Everybody's Irish on St. Patricks Day!!!![p]~thirdeye~ 0a48bf36.gif

    thirdeye,
    I checked my butts at 7, looking great. Internal temp was right at 160. I have a maple fattie on at the wash. Pig Candy later today.[p]Mike

  • thirdeye,
    I’m following your beef pastrami page and will be cooking two 4.5 pound flats tomorrow after they have finished with the 48 hour soak and over night rest in the frig. About how long should mine take to reach 175 internal with a 225 dome cooking temperatures???? Trying to get a feel for when I should put them on the egg. I was thinking about 8-9 hours, Am I in the ballpark??? I’m use to cooking whole packer briskets not smaller pieces of a brisket. Thanks…………

    Rick's Tropical Delight,
    Rick,got my weed burner and it's awesome. Wonder why they bothered to paint the tip. I think a brushed metal would have been better since the paint peels because of the mega heat. Love the way it preforms lites well and gets things going fast.

  • thirdeyethirdeye Posts: 7,428
    GaryJ,[p]You are right, flats cook different that packer cuts and corned beef cooks differently than fresh beef. I think it cooks a bit faster and because it is cured, the higher internal finish temps are not needed. That's why the 170 degree +/- is a good ballpark number.[p]I'm going to shoot for 225 degrees actual, at the grate. And plan on 6 or 7 hours. Using 225 at the dome will give you about 195/200 actual, so yeah .... I think your guess of 8 or 9 hours should work out. Worst case if they finish early, is they can get a longer rest in foil in a cooler which will improve them. I stick them with a probe thermometer after about 4 hours to get a feel if I need to ramp the pit temp up or down, so keep that in mind too.[p]I'm still debating if I want to steam or braise one of the pastrami when it comes off the pit, or maybe pull it off at 150 for the braise. Or possibly a foil wrap with some liquid at 150. I've had it that way in deli's and it is really good. Glad I have plenty to play with. LOL[p]~thirdeye~[p]

  • eggaholic,
    excellent! i hear tell it's what the pros use.[p]just watch your gasket, and use the turbo trigger in short bursts or you'll mess up the paint, heheh[p]just the sound it makes alone is worth the price, not to mention the lump lighting capability!

  • thirdeye,
    Thanks for that reassurance; I can’t wait to get these on and going.

    GaryJ,[p]I guess I am ahead of you, if I remember, I will post my 4 hour internal temp (in about 3 hours). We may both learn something. I try to keep good notes on my cooks, but I am terrible when it comes to estimating my total cook time...[p]~thirdeye~ 0a48bf36.gif

    Gary,[p]My 4 hour internal temp is 149°. I think mine weighed in at just under 4 pounds, and I've been running 250° grate temp.[p]~thirdeye~ 0a48bf36.gif

    <p />In true forum fashion, I'm answering my own post. Heheee.[p]Dig this soon-to-be barbecued cabbage. I used my 'tater ring to hold the cored cabbage upright during the cook. The cavity is filled with melted butter, pepper, salt, onion and garlic powders. I got this thing set-up indirect in the small. 2, 3, or 4 hours who knows???[p]DSC01815a.jpg[p]~thirdeye~ 0a48bf36.gif

  • thirdeye,
    ya think the butter will leak out? is that foil "waterproof", meaning will it hold in any butter that escapes the cabbage head?
    that looks good enuf to eat right now

  • thirdeye,
    Sounds like its getting close to the plateau, if that applies to these.
    Thanks for the update.

  • ronbeaux,
    you are the brisket king!

    <p />Rick's Tropical Delight,[p]So far it's holding it's own. I filled the cavity with water for 30 minutes to check for leaks. The foil was for insurance. I was very careful not to tear it. I'm not sure about the drying of the outer leaves. I may have to mop it with beer. LOL[p]~thirdeye~

  • thirdeye,
    i want to party with you, mon![p]i have an extra seat in my rv for the bristol motor speedway spring races. we leave next friday at 1000. my treat.[p]i just pulled the four pork tendies...
    the one with no sauce looked so lonely, i painted it with pomegranate chipotle sauce anyways!

  • thirdeyethirdeye Posts: 7,428
    ronbeaux,[p]Ya, or on das side.[p]Great flavor, (in fact I canceled the other cabbage I was going to steam in the broth from the braised brisket) but like all prototypes, this technique needs some tickling.
    I added moisture throughout the cook (as Rick mentioned) and put a foil topper on, sealing it to lock in some juices for 30 minutes as the taters were cooking.[p]It's nice to deal with the head as a whole, developing and concentrating flavors over time. I'm sure the butter helped a bunch ..... I don't use it that often.[p]Happy St Patrick's Day !!!![p]~thirdeye~
