Re: My corned beef fail - no pron :(
I also noticed that cooking my pastrami to 170 was not even close to tender. It was almost like driving a nail through a sole of a shoe when probe testing at 170. I wrapped it in foil at that point to speed up the process and took it to 205 before it probed like butter. Lucky for me I started about 3 hours early and figured it could rest in the cooler.
