First try at brisket (somewhat)

Discussion in 'Beef' started by deskjockey, Aug 17, 2009.

  1. I had a corned beef brisket lying around, figured I would make pastrami.

    So I debrined it and let it sit in water for a day.

    Then I figured I would make smoked corned beef lol

    So I had to rebrine for a couple days with my own brining solution.

    Rubbed down with mustard and a rub I had previously made.

    I never realized how small the brisket gets, this one was about 4 pounds to start with.
  2. Hey deskjockey,
    That looks real good! Only wish that my computer screen had a scratch and stiff on it! Does make me hungry looking at the meat!

    Very nice looking pastrami I just finished eating mine but I always have a brisket and all I have to do is make corned beef first. I'll show you in a week and half.
  7. Thanks!

    I have to do a real brisket now, this got me hooked on doing them [​IMG]
