    Since I had to work overtime, I figured I would load up the smoker for Marty to smoke today. I have wanted to try Deejay Debi’s Pastrami recipe for some time. We bought 2 corned beef brisket and I put the rub on it a couple of days ago and sealed it in a foodsaver bag. In the mean time I figured that wasn’t enough to do so a made up a fatty too…. Ok so not 1 but 5 - running a smoker at ½ load is wrong, isn’t it? And then Marty wanted to do the ABT too, so I figured, what the heck… made those too. So we had a full load today.

    The Fatties (made with 2 differnt kinds of seasonings that we make with our venison).

    North Country sausage with eggs, green peppers, onions, canadian bacon, cheese, and salsa

    North Country sausage with - eggs, green peppers, onions, canadian bacon, cheese, and maple syrup

    North Country sausage with - salsa, red onions, green peppers, black olives, and cheese

    Hunters sausage with - pizza sauce, canadian bacon, pepperoni, red onions, green peppers, black olives, garlic, and cheese

    Hunters sausage with - cream cheese mixture from the ABT’s recipe, green olives, and sharp cheddar cheese

    For Atomic Buffalo Turds we used the popular recipe that has been in many forums on here.

    12 fresh Jalapeños
    8 oz block cream cheese, at room temperature
    1/2 C finely grated sharp cheddar
    1 Tbsp dry onion
    1 tsp granulated garlic
    1 Tbsp honey
    1 Tbsp barbecue rub
    1 lb bacon, thin cut

    The fatties were awsome... the ABT's were AMAZING!! Dang.... I wish we would have made those months ago. We will have some ready to go now whenever we are smoking. The Pastrami we will not know until tomorrow late afternoon. Needs to set overnight before slicing. I will give an update tomorrow on that.

    Marty did... i will try to post them here. I haven't done that before. And, that post took me over an hr because my Cowboys are playing and it is a lot closer than I would like it to be in the 4th quarter!!!!!




    I am sure he got some of the Pastrami but I can't find them. The Fatty with the ABT's mixture and green olives (far right side) is excellent!!! But I love green olives too... they go so well with beer... and football. [​IMG] And I am liking the score a lot more at the end of this post than I was at the beginning!!! [​IMG]

    Well, here is the pastrami that my wife made all sliced up.


    We have not eaten pastrami enough to tell how it is, I feel the taste is very good. I have a neighbor that loves pastrami, I brought him over a small bag to taste test and make a sandwich or two. He will get back with his honest opinion on taste, texture and seasoning. Also a big thanks to Debi on this one !!! If it was not for her, we would not have tried this.

    Wow that's a really lean brisket! Great job! Hope you like it. I like to add extra spice to the outside I love the pepper and coriander taste. Did a really good job!

    I like to fry it up with roasted red peppers and provalone cheese!
