I ended up smoking my Pastrami to 170-175 cooled and refrigerated overnight. On Easter morning I steamed it for 3 hours in a covered cast iron pot with a steamer basket on my stove top. I gotta tell you the end product was just like I remember from Katz Deli in NYC. Moist, Tender and flavorful. Give it try.

This post is my opinion and mine alone, not necessarily that of the KCBS, it's board of directors or office nor that of Peter Pan, Tinkerbell and certainly not Rush Limbaugh.
