    Had a 4# chuck roast left over from the last sausage Fest, so I defrosted it! dropped it into a corning brine! and now I wait.... I've only done briskets for corned beef/pastrami in the past, this should be interesting.

    Never used a chuck either. I have used top and bottom round though. Should be tasty!

    It's sure to be good! I bought 8 chucks that were all cut at the same time, and the others were almost fall apart tender even when raw!

    The calendar needs to move fast! I want a sammich!

    Well, I couldn't wait any longer, so I steamed the corned chuck roast last night. I made some homemade rye bread as well!

    Getting it all sliced up! I took it to an IT of 165 and it sliced great.

    Homemade rye bread and white bread. We used the rye for the Reuben's!

    Toasted a bit to melt the cheese, added some homemade sauce, and then...

    Sorry for the ugly sammich pic, but I was too busy eating to take a good picture! This stuff was great!

    Gonna start another one sometime this week.
