I decided to give Thirdeye's pastrami recipe a try this weekend. I started the rinse Thursday evening and changed the water 4X plus rinses. I put the rub on yesterday morning and starting smoking at 250 at 1:00PM today on the small with cherry rub. The mini had the loney & the small the pastrami...


The pond got cleaned up yesterday


The pastrami


sliced & ready for a sammich

I will do this again...thanks Thirdeye

    I spent most of my money on good bourbon, and bad women...the rest, I just wasted!!

    Kim, that looks too good! It is a no fail recipe. Did my first one a month or so ago and will be doing another for the fiance's birthday next month. Pastrami and loney, you can't go wrong.

    Kim, that is now on my short list of things to try. I think thirdeye's post had us all salivating and now this! I'm curing some bacon this week, but I'm going to make pastrami soon.

    Your sandwich looks delicious. :) Are those homemade pickles?
  • MaineggMainegg Posts: 7,787
    Now how can you have two posts so night and day different??? at least this is edible meat :whistle: :P
  • thirdeyethirdeye Posts: 7,428
    That looks like the ideal sandwich.
    Happy Trails

  • Nice. First bologna and now this! Which are you going to take for lunch tomorrow??? That's a hard choice. Bet it was a fun day of egging, though.

    Happily egging on my original large BGE since 1996... now the owner of 6 eggs. Call me crazy, everyone else does!

    Delish Kim... ;)

    Beautiful, Kim. I haven't tried Thirdeye's method yet because my family's so insistent that I keep doing the "Charcuterie" method that is rapidly becoming their favorite thing off my Egg. I need to get my crust looking as good as yours, though...what do you use to crack your pepper and coriander?
  • BobSBobS Posts: 2,485
    Great pictures Kim!!! Nice cook. Pastrami is hard to beat.
  • vidalia1vidalia1 Posts: 7,091
    I am going to try the Ruhlman recipe also...I have a mortar & pestle to crack spices, very handy.
  • JeffersonianJeffersonian Posts: 4,244
    I've tried to get a coating like that, but have probably been stymied by how my coffee grinder has been cracking the pepper. I need to go low-tech....thanks, Kim.
  • RoudyRoudy Posts: 431
    Damn Kim - that looks delicious. Any chance of serving some on the 31st?

    Your pond is looking good but is lacking a certain something - how bout a Boilermaker? :laugh:

    Here's a pic of one of my pastrami efforts, BTW:
