    This is my last smoke for the next 3 weeks, as I leave to the USA

    For 2 weeks on business. I will be in LA and in Vegas with stop in London.(i will have the laptop with me)

    I can’t leave the family  without a stoke of pastrami so ,

    I corned beef topside for 12 days and smoked it for 14 hours at 225 with Apple & Cherry

    It came out great and yummy but in two colors I don’t know way

    But it is soft and juicy.









    Thanks for looking

    Wow!!!!  You're leaving them some Awesome Lunch Meat !!!

    It just can't be made to look any better than that !!!

    Wow  Again!!!!!


  3. It looks like the cure didn't get all the way to the center. That's why it's not pink all the way through. How exactly did you cure it? Looks pretty tasty anyway.

    Good looking stuff....Have fun in sin city! If you get the hankering for great Italian, Give Casa De Amore a call. Old school Vegas decor. They will pick up and return you in a limo as well. Went there a couple years ago during CES. Too much fun.

    Ahron, Like Ale said it looks like the cure didn't get to the center of the meat. How did it taste? Did the center taste the same as the outside? Maybe that's how these guys get these great smoke rings that look fake! Have a great trip to the US, I sure wish you were going to be close to me I would love to meet you.
