Default Sundays Pastrami.....

I wasn't sure if this should be here or in the homemade meat section so feel free to move it if you wish. Also I have to admit I don't know the rules here about pic's. I try to follow the rules but rarely read them so if there's to many or they are to big I'll delete the post. thanks



I'm one of those people that buys meat on sale and sticks in the freezer and to not use it up as fast as I buy it. So I'm doing some cleaning out and found a couple corned beef points that thought would taste good as pastrami....and I was right ….
Had a cold pastrami sammie for lunch today at work that was damn good, but I just finished a hot one for dinner..and it was awesome...been a while since I had pastrami.

Here's how it went;
Rinsed the two points in cold water then dried them good. Then made a rub of 3 parts course ground coriander, 3 parts black pepper and 1 part garlic powder.





Coated them good with the rub and placed back in the frig for a few hours;








After about 6 hours resting in the frig I fired up some charcoal and got the smoker running at about 250f , added some hickory and just left them alone till they reached 165 internal temp.
here they are almost finished.





Once they reached temperature I pulled them and wrapped in HD aluminum foil and let them cool down before I placed them back in the frig for the night. This morning I sliced them up.




and a close up to make ya drool;





My wife who is not a big meat eater or smoked food eater was eating it almost as fast as I could slice it so it couldn't be to bad.


Thanks for checking out my pastrami.

Dan, those are the LEANEST points I have ever seen!

I like fatty pastrami, so I look for corned beef points that have some fat cap on them. I know, I know ... it's bad for me!

But so good!

Dan,

That is absolutely mouth watering. Looking at the pix, you can almost taste it.

One thing I forgot to mention if you're using a store bought corned beef.
They tend to be salty, so you might want to soak it in cold water for a couple hours or so and change it every 30-45 minutes to pull some of the salt out.
then cut off a thin slice and fry it to see if it still to salty. If good move on, if too salty soak again,

Wow! Dan... my wife would eat that too. She is a fusssy when it comes to fat on beef, but on the other side, she will eat pigs feet....go figure??

I like pastrami, and usually with the fat drippage as I eat it, but that beef is so lean.

I can't wait to prep and cook a corned beef into pastrami.

Great recipe.. Thanks so much!
