Pastrami Pron (Lots of pron)
 
This weekend I decided to try my hand at homemade pastrami. It was driving me nuts seeing all of the great looking pron over the last week or so…

I started out with pre-made corn beef…

The package said ‘Flat Cut’, but what I found was a trimmed out ‘center cut’ of a brisket that contained both the point and flat….

I decided to split the two pieces since there was so little holding them together….

I then seasoned the two with 12 parts fresh pepper, 1 part coriander, 1 part garlic powder, 1 part onion powder, and 1 part paprika….

I smoked it to an internal temp of 195* and let it rest for about 45 minutes before I sliced it…

It had a great bark and was very juicy!!!

I wanted an old fashioned sandwich on rye with Swiss-cheese, mustard, and kosher dill pickles…

Kathy on the other hand, wanted a Rubin….

I would do it the same again (in fact I have two more packages of corn beef in the fridge) but I would cut down on the pepper by a quarter…. Overall, I’m looking forward to the leftovers!!!

Wow looks great. Love the homemade pastrami. Made some last week and there is none left! The corned beef I purchased said flat like yours but the point was still attached. I should have seperated it like you did, I also only cooked to internal 165*. Next time will cook to 195* most was very good but one part was pretty tough.
Did you soak yours in fresh water fo leach out the salt?:icon_bigsmil

This crap is killing me! I'm going to wal-mart and picking up one. I'm going to have to smoke it Monday or Tuesday. I hadn't even thought about pastrami till this past week and all this pron has my mouth watering now!!

Qucifer 02-24-2008 06:51 PM

Man you fellas are good at making that bbq. That pastrami looks awesome.

spicewine 02-24-2008 06:56 PM

I am definatly going to do some pastrami the next couple - o weeks!!!

Great lookin' chow Bro!!!!

Jaberwabee 02-24-2008 07:17 PM

I need to go load up on that same corned beef while we have it around. Looks like good eats. I haven't smoked in anything in over a week, I think thats a record. Been working so much havent been around, I need to make some time.

Biggun 02-24-2008 07:18 PM

So Cal Albertson's have corned beef points for $1.49 (while supplies last), and I have more pastrami!!!!:-D

Very nice!

That is some great looking sandwiches - without a doubt, that has persuaded me to get a corned beef and get the smoker going again next weekend!

Jack--I think it is NIKE that says...."Just Do It"!!!

I keep making the same mistake that we all make with fatties.
I never cook enough!
Just this week, I cooked just one commercial corned beef flat into pastrami.
It will not last a week!
I could have cooked a half dozen in the same time for the same fuel! :lol:

In the future, I will cook 2 or 3 (at least) and freeze them as described here:

Good Eats and so much cheaper that "Deli cut" pastrami!
