Vending Pastrami
 
I am cooking 250 lbs of pastrami, is the yield the same as pork? 50% loss? I got a good gig for st patties day and want to make sure I have a enough. thanks

Probably more like brisket, 60% yield at least if not better since your not cooking it so long.

How long do you cook pastrami?

I like to take it up to 185*... Makes it just tender enough and still have some 'Bite' texture...

The yield is close to 60% the last couple of times (including this weekend).

Sorry to hear your camera is broken. :roll:

I smoke to 165 and wrap in foil with some beef broth. Bring it to 195 and pull and let rest for as long and you can resist. Its even better the next day. I cook kust like a brisket minus salt in the rub.

Are you buying the briskets cured or are you curing your own?

Jacked UP BBQ 02-02-2009 03:30 PM

I am buying them ready for the smoker. Much easier and less chance of disaster.

CajunSmoker 02-02-2009 03:31 PM

That will definitly take a lot of the work out of it. Nothing like homecured though:cool:

Jacked UP BBQ 02-02-2009 03:33 PM

Excuse my last post, I soak them in fresh water with potatoes to draw some of the salt out, or it tastes like you are eating a salt cube. You still need no salt in the rub.

Are you getting them from a distributor or someother contact. Other then Corned beef in the store I haven't found already cured and ready to go briskets.
