Wife loves reubens too much! I've got 3 approx. 4 lb hunks of corned beef debrining in a large pot of water. I'll let them soak for about 12 hours in water, with occasional changes of water. My first attempt was great, thanks to all the good advice here on the forum. Can't wait to smoke some more come Sunday after letting them soak up some good rub for a day. Cheers and have a happy Holiday Season!
