    I am looking ahead to St Patty's. I see many recipes for corned beef on the smoker. So basically I just cure the brisket then cook?

    If you’re cooking a corned beef brisket on the smoker, you’re making pastrami. If you get a corned beef brisket, soak it in plain water for at least 4 hours to help remove the overpowering salt taste. You may want to change the water several times. I do these all the time and fridge overnight and slice thin for sandwiches. You will never buy pastrami in a deli again.

    I am wanting to make a corned beef for St. Patties day. Does anybody have a good recipe for corned beef? I might do two and make pastrami out of one of them.

    Give up the recipes!!

    From what I understood the corned beef has to be seasoned (rubbed) and then into the smoker to make it a true pastrami and not just smoked corned beef brisket. I could be wrong but far as I have always learned the adding of the spices is a must.
