    I loved that stuff too. Love corn beef hash. Wish I could still eat taters just for that.

    I managed a Grocery Deli dept for awhile. We got the Commercial size 10 pound cans of Corned Beef for slicing. Sliced 1/4" for quick frying, we sold more of the Canned stuff than the Corned Brisket or Round. Between all the Fat and congealed cooking juices, the Canned Corned Beef has way more flavor than Corned Brisket and I even prefer it on a sandwich. The Kids called it ABC Corned Beef.

    Yup----Love Spam too!!

    I used to buy it by the can & eat at least half per breakfast.

    Now I buy it by the individual slice package.[​IMG]

    So it's been 10 Days since I set out on my 1st Corned Beef Journey.

    Today was time to finish the Corned Beef.

    Removed from the brine and rinsed and remains brine off the meat.

    Poached in Kamado (in a Dutch Oven) for 2 Hours @ 110'C (230'F).

    Then on to the grill for 2.5 hours at the same temperature.


    Removed a foil wrapped for 1 Hour the carved.



    Truly amazing texture, juicy, flavour was amazing. Will be on my favorite list!

    Just a side note, as you can see from the finished product, it has definitely been cured, so adding cure to the Boiling Brine, did not alter its effectiveness.

    Hi Richie, thanks for the points. I shows that the cure is affective after heat. I will always add when cold from now on! Just to be on the safe side.
