Love Pastrami and Ruben Sandwiches so I purchased this 12.72 lbs. Corn Beef Brisket.

Thing was massive so I had to cut it in half to fit in the stock pot. Soaked it overnight, changing the water out every 2 to 3 hours.

The next day I patted them dry and sprinkled on some Pastrami rub.

On to the Kamado at 250 degrees and some Mesquite chunks.

When they reached 160 I double wrapped them in foil and then took them up to 190.

When they reach 190 I placed them in an ice chest and covered them with a towel. After 3 hours I removed the foil and put them back on the Kamado at 375 for 40 minutes to set the bark.

And here they are ready to slice.

And now I assemble the Rubens.

Just to think, that beautiful thing could have ended up in a New England boiled dinner. :thumb:

I broke out the slicer on the other half and there was far less fat in that side.

Thanks. It was great but after eating it 3 days in a row you can get tried of anything. I ended up freezing 3 packages for later use.
