Talking Leftover Pastrami

I made my 1st pastrami this week
came out pretty good no pics sorry
I still can figure where to put the film in my IMac.
how should I store my leftovers??
I made a bunch so I have leftovers
would you slice then freeze or should I freeze
a whole piece and slice it after I defrost??
I have a small meat slicer??

Many Thanx

I would freeze it in a size that you want to eat at a later date. Defrost the chunk of goodness, then steam it to 200* internal and have yourself a delicious, New York Hot Patrami Sammie.......Mmmmmmmmmmmm

I did one a couple of weeks ago, sliced it all and vac-u-sucked it in 1 lb packaged for sammies, Froze it and I swear the longer it sits the better it is.

That's the best way to do it.

Wait, just a sec...you had LEFTOVER PASTRAMI??? I don't believe it.

But if I were to actually, one day, hypothetically, have leftover pastrami, I'd slice it and then freeze it in 1/2 poundish portions in a vacuums sealed type baggie.

Sorry I took so long to write back Toby slow you know..

I started with my local butchers house made grey corned beef
then i soaked it in water I use a five gallon orange water jug.
let it soak 24 hrs changed the water, let it soak 12 more hrs
then drained the water again and filled it with beer and soaked it
for 12 or so hrs...

then pulled it from the beer bath it looked mighty happy I'll tell you..
Patted it dry. now my butcher makes his corned beef from looks like
two flats tied together. I'm going to ask why when I see the big boss.
I ended up cutting the strings and when I was done I had four pieces
of corned beef..

Then I rubbed with my own Pastrami rub.. which I stole and changed
after reading pastrami rub recipes for weeks..

smoked it at 230 to 250 until temp of 170ish

I sliced and froze in 1/2 lb bags.. then into a big zip lock..
