Default In Progress: Replicating A Bird to the Wise from Jason's Deli

For those that have had one, I assume I do not need to explain my intentions. For those that have not had one, A Bird to the Wise is a sandwich from Jason's Deli which is basically just turkey and pastrami with a slice of swiss cheese on a bun with your choice of mayo or mustard. It is absolutely delicious but as the nutritional stats show, it can be deadly too

Picture from the internet, not mine.

So, I have a pastrami and a turkey breast rolling along on the UDS. Nothing too fancy. The pastrami is a store bought corned brisket point that I soaked for 24 hours to reduce the salt content. I got a point this time because it was $1/lb cheaper than the corned flats. However, after trimming off some of the excess fat, I am wondering if it was really a better deal in the end. Anyway, after the soak I made up a simple rub based off of Third Eye's recipe found here. For the turkey, I used a little bit of the left over pastrami rub along with my general purpose rub. Since I plan to slice thin, I wanted to get a good flavor on the outside.





Almost done cooking
