Did these two versions of Pastrami yesterday for practice. going to do one of these rubs on the new menu for the restaurant. The first is a blend of peppercorms and pickling spice in a food processor.

Then this one is Canadian steak seasoning

2 1/2 hours in at 325 grid
They both came out pretty good but hard to choose but i think the peppercorn/pickling spice was the winner


Took about 3 1/2 hours to finish at 185 internal.

    Look good. Plate setter and pan under them it looks like. Were they store bought corned beef brisket to start?

    yes they were already corned when i got them from my purveyor as samples of a new line. i did have a drip pan but not the platesetter it is sitting on the bottom grid of an adjustable rig.

    Looks very good. I would think the peppercorn would give a better result.

    Because of the corning I try to stay away from any rub that has additional salt.

    That looks delicious but I'm confused. What is the difference between pastrami and corned beef?
  • Corned beef with the right spices and smoke become pastrami.
  • If it taste as good as it looks you are a success.
