Default 2 Chuckies & Beef Round Tip Roast Getting Corned for Pastrami

Here's another thread of corning up some meat. Working on stocking up the freezer so I always have some type of corned meat on hand for smoking up . Took 4 butts out of the brine today and will be shifting in the beef today.

I've corned chuckies before and they make better pastrami for me than brisket (though brisket is still great) and are my new "go to". I haven't cooked a beef round in quite some time let along corning one . So we'll see what kind of pastrami it makes. Corn it and them smoke still to a medium-rare type temp and see what happens I guess .

Here's the butt stuff that finished today. Sealed up 3 for the freezer and left one in the fridge to possibly cook tomorrow. If not I'll seal it up too.








Kid picked up the roast. Wasn't going to get it but he flailed his arms in its general direction so I saw the roast and said why not?? It's almost 12 lbs so I will probably half it and toss it in


Chuckies about 6lbs total




New brine made up

I'm really excited to see how the roast turns out. Even when smoked to medium rare a normal roast can be a little bland at times, which is why they make for good sandwiches with some sauce or other stuff. So maybe the corning will give it a new dynamic.

Should cook one next weekend when they are ready

You should enjoy the pastramied round roast, the amount of fat is more subtle than in a corned brisket, but looking at this pastramied and chilled round you can still make out the veins. The good thing is even though a round roast is thicker than a brisket, my finishing times (pressure finish) are about the same because they are a little more tender to start with.

Thanks. So you still took this past a "Medium Rare" temp which is where a non corned version would typically be eaten at so it isn't dry and overdone? Maybe I'll give both temps a try for fun.

Oh yes. It was on the smoker until in the 150°'s, but I do a pressure finish. Because it's so much thicker than a corned brisket flat I'm guessing it did not get to as high of a temp when processing.... but I bet it saw 180°, where as a flat like this one saw 190° plus.


That said, I think that's a good experiment... trying different finish temps with the round. With a brisket, finishing is for tenderness, but a round is more tender to start with, and frankly I bet most most of the producers of corned beef use USDA select. Since you will have no shortage of pastrami, try a Reuben pizza with a white sauce, garlic and mustard as a topper.

Ya done lots of pastrami pizzas. They are amazing and a great way to us it. Haven't done a white sauce variation yet. My favorite might be pastrami, pickle and red onion and dip a little thousand island or mustard.
