Thanks Jestridge! I take it to an IT of 165F. I pull it off the heat a little early and let it sit (still in the stock).

I cook a lot of deer meat, this pastrami tastes more like pastrami than the regular wild deer flavor. Not sure if that makes sense. lol I love the flavor of fresh deer when it's been handled right (field dressed, etc.) but I love this pastrami flavor too.
The pastrami seasonings and curing process DO change the flavor of the deer meat.
Hope you give it a try sometime! Thanks again...
