Pastrami again.....
3 Attachment(s)
It's a balmy 8 degrees here is southeastern PA (that's just wrong) and the local grocery store had corned beef on sale for $1.85/lb. What's a girl to do but make pastrami!

nice looking start, just one problem...that blue thermopen is probably off a couple of degrees, may want to trade it in for a more accurate and faster orange one.

Hey, great idea this time of year. I am gonna look for a sale around here. Are those points? Be sure to show us some pics of the sliced product.

I haven't made pastrami yet, but I can see from the color of your Thermapen that pastrami isn't all that sensitive to temperature accuracy.

I'm going to start soaking one today for Sunday dinner.

I pulled a 5# flat out of the brine Weds. nite and plan on firing up the new BGE, (lg), tomorrow when it's a little warmer. First time out with the egg so I figured go with a pastrami, why the heck not?

Nice start! I guess you cold weather folks have to put your meat in the Fridge just to keep it from freezing!:wink:

Hard to beat good pastrami.

Looks like a really good start. Nice score on the corned beef.

I have a full packer corned beef 13.8 lb that I put in a 5 gallon food container Thursday PM. Thought I would change the water last was about 4 degrees...some ice..thought that the salt in the brisket would keep it from freezing...this AM it was -4 degrees.. took it indoors this PM and changed the water.. back outside

Hope to rub it and smoke it tomorrow!

Lookin good ...

Yours in BBQ,
