Default Corned Beef

First attempt at corned beef.
Soaked in water for two hours and then made a rub of peppercorns, coriander seeds, onion powder, thyme, garlic powder and paprika.
Rubbed, wrapped and into the fridge overnight.

Took 6 hours at 300F to reach 185F inside.

I came out pretty good, I normally just boil corned beef..... Not any more!
It was so tender that it was falling apart as I sliced.

That looks like your pastrami started out as a corned round roast. I really like those and keep an eye out for them. They don't have a heavy fat cap like a corned brisket, but you can see the even marbeling of fat in my photo (this one had been chilled).

That looks great, Drew! We have one store around here hat regularly carries corned rounds instead of briskets. As Thirdeye said, they don't have as much fat as a brisket, so they can dry out very easily. It looks like yours was perfect!

BTW, technically you made pastrami, which is smoked corned beef.

That really looks great! I haven't seen a corned round before, I'll have to ask my butcher.

Thanks everyone, I am a fan of corned beef (or in this case pastrami )
The other plus is that it is very cheap over here. $9 normally gets you one that is around 4lb.
I had already sliced a fair amount for tea (pastrami and sauerkraut sandwiches) before I remembers to take pics
