If you want corned beef, you don't have to soak it at all. Just rinse it off and put it in the crock pot or oven for a few hours and you got corned beef for St Patties day. If you want to smoke it and make pastrami, then you gotta soak it.

How y'all are? I'm glad you got to see me I guarontee Justin Wilson 4/24/1914 - 09/05/2001
