Doing a nice 5 lb. Corn Beef to Pastrami and thought I would put my receipt in the ring. After I have your Corn Beef soaking for 6 hours to remove the salt I put the spices on it5 lb. piece) 1/2T Paprika 2 T Coriander 2 T Brown Sugar 1T Black Peppercorns 4 Cloves of Garlic 1t crush red Pepper Put in spice grinder, then 1T Capers, make a paste and add to spice. Cover beef and put in refrigerator for at least 24 hours. I smoke at 225 on my Traeger for 4 hours, then turn it up to 250 to get IT of 180. back in refrigerator for 24 hours. I make a steamer from a pot and oil splatter screen and steam for 1 hour when ready to eat. I use beer in the steamer.
