Default Pastrami and dino bones.... a nice day

Had some friends coming into town so I have a good reason to do an 18lb packer brisket pastrami and a pile of beef ribs.

The brisket after curing and a washdown


Put it a big, clean bucket with a chopped up potato and filled with water. Back in the fridge for 24 hours. Fresh water, new potato then another 24hours.


Seasoned the brisket with a rub heavy on pepper and ground coriander. The ribs got a good hit of The Rub Company's Santa Maria mix.
Then covered and back in the fridge overnight.


I put the pastrami on at 11pm at 265.
It was a beautiful day.
When the IT hit 170 or so, I foiled it tightly sealed with about a half can of Liptons beef broth.



I then moved the pastrami to the MAK while foiled and put the ribs on the egg


After about 3 hours I foiled them with the other half can of beef broth. Let them ride until they were really tender (1-1/2 - 2 hours).

Here's a pic of the ribs getting served. Love dem bones.

Pastrami (oh yum)


I also made a pot of brisket baked beans. The pastrami and ribs were served with a Quinoa salad, Kale salad, Caesar salad and a corn salad. Everybody took home leftover pastrami. 18lbs goes a long way!

the potato absorbs the saltiness from the corned beef. I have always done this because it seems to work. I don't want to jinx myself and not do it. I really don't like salty pastrami and mine aren't.

Beautiful in every way Marty. My mom taught me the potato trick many years ago when I was just a kid. Always put them in frying oil to soak up the impurities. Thanks for sharing!
