    Here’s my version two of making elk pastrami.

    Last year I made some and it turned out great so I decided to make some more. Here is last years version: Elk Pastrami

    I followed the same recipe: Smokin Al's Kick A$$ beef pastrami recipe here: Pastrami-from-scratch-lots-of-q-view

    I had some really nice large chunks of meat I vacuum packed, pulled them out to thaw:



    Smokin Als recipe mixed up


    In the pot for a soak


    Out of the pot and rinsed


    A little EVO and rub of CBP/onion/garlic powder


    I ran out of plastic wrap so I had to go the zip lok route for an overnight in the fridge


    Rack em up and smoking today


    I am using Amazen Pecan



    More pics to come.

    All sliced up, bagged and in the fridge. Vacuum seal tomorrow.

    This will make a couple of Rubens don't you think?

    Made some Ruben Sammies for dinner tonight, they really turned out great.

    I didn't have any artisan rye or homemade sauerkraut but it still tasted damn good!

    I think you should send some of that to an under-privileged Canadian. It looks great!
