Being from Montreal originally, Montreal style smoked meat is something that I really miss. I also miss the amazing rye bread they make up there. I finally started my smoking, drying, charcuterie, sausage project and my first smoking project was Montreal smoked meat. I have to say, it turned out amazing. I picked and chose all my steps from a number of recipes and I chose well! I can now enjoy Montreal smoked meat again after years of not being able to. Seeing as I'm a chef, I already have my rye bread recipe down so today enjoyed a wonderful sandwich just like back home . I use a SmokeMeister smoker attached to the side of my bbq and I used pellets and then hickory and mesquite chips.
