Corned Beef
 
Soaked these two corned beef briskets for two days and changed the water 4 times.
Lit the lump on the other end of the charcoal pan to see what that might do to the burn and it didnít make a significant difference that could tell.

Mixed up some onion, paprika, garlic powder, paprika to rub with and then added the spice pack that came with the corned beef and just kinda pressed that into the meat hoping it would stay put.

Cabbage was drizzeled with some chili oil and fresh ground pepper and a can of beer.

I used the water pan and learned how to not make a big mess on my carport by being careful to not pull the dang trays out without pulling the bottom one out first to catch anything that might drip. Also learned to put a drip pan on the floor to catch that drip that came from all the condensation.

Threw in some bacon to flavor the cabbage with and got it crispy and added at the table.

The moist heat was just right for this cook just as RandyQ said it would be.

Not too done and not too rare but just right.

DAY TWO Ė Got up this morning and sliced up the meat and food savered it into 1 lb packs except for tonights supper.

Tried a couple of methods for stuffing the abts and of course the last one worked better.

Unless your gonna half em the filling really works best for me if you smush everything together first.

Even tried splitting one up one side and didnít like that either.

jeffjenkins1 03-30-2008 09:41 PM

Boy does that look good. I need to try my hand at ABT's.

Looks great! Will need to get that corned beef out of the fridge and into the pit... wonder what the weather is goingto be Saturday.....

Norcoredneck 03-30-2008 10:17 PM

Wouldn't mind trying that.

BigBarry 03-31-2008 01:28 PM

Love the pics!! That meat looks perfect. Cabbage on the smoker sounds interesting.

I made a pastrami this weekend from some Frierich corned beef flats I bought last week. Previously I soaked and rinsed for 2 days. This time I just rinsed twice and rubbed it.

It came out a bit more salty but tasted good. Probably great with a beer and unsalted pretzels!

I would soak for a few hours next time and see if it come out just right.

Ron_L 03-31-2008 01:32 PM

Through trial and error I've steeled on a two day soak for a store bought corned beef. The resulting pastrami has just the right level of salt for me.

Nice looking pastrami, GD!

Grumpy's Q 03-31-2008 01:34 PM

Looks good...my mouth is watering!

Kenny 13 03-31-2008 01:44 PM

That all looks great. I have to say, since I've joined this site I'm dying to try both corned beef and pastrami.

Brian in So Cal 03-31-2008 02:42 PM

That looks great.

Jack2u2 03-31-2008 02:56 PM
