    This is for my boss.

    A good score @1.39 for flats.[​IMG]

    I used the enclosed spices and rubbed it with Webers Black Pepper marinade. I did the salt test and it passed before rubbing.

    Threw on a chickie for good measure. Didn't get a finished Pic. Carol said it was good.

    All sliced up. I got 4.6 pounds after the smoke and slicing and tasting. 4.6 pounds @ 7.50 = 34.50. It was great. No soak, 235' smoker temp to 165' internal with mesquite and hickory.

    Thx for watching.

    Durn good price for those flats! Best we ever got here during the sales was $1.99 for the point but I used the circular from Brookshires to price-match them at Walmart and got 5 flats for that instead.
    I went back to your pictures to see what the weights were before you smoked them but I couldn't quite make it out- do you know? I'm having to trim the daylights out of everything that goes to a certain café I've got so out of the 5 I started with at 24.38 lbs, I ended up with 9.63 lbs + a baggie of "ends and pieces" for a couple of meals for me later. I charge her a bit more to do that, but dang if my tired feet think it's worth it after doing all that then slicing and bagging it slice layered over slice so she can pick them up easy and faster!

    Also, while I was looking/squinting/asking my dog to take a look too, I noticed that the price tags actually have them listed as points. Wonder if you got points for a flat price? Didn't even have to price-match!

    They weighed 3.44, 3.75 = 7.19. I got 4.6 pounds of smoked meat not bad 63.9%. That is a terrible yield on yours 38.7% I think. What temp do you smoke at and to what temp?

    I got the flats for the 1.39 point sale price.[​IMG] My friend took care of me.[​IMG]

    For lunch today (new job and all- 30 mins for lunch) I brought some of the "pieces and stems" (the people I sell to won't use 'end pieces' or 'fatty pieces' or 'small "cut" pieces' for their deli, so, well, it's sad [​IMG] but I have to eat them!). To me, the best parts!
    That's why my yield is so low BTW. No fat as is possible is the "rule".

    It's so close to being an an organic deli that it scares me, and "trim that fat off!" is just the start of it lol! When I was asked if I had anything not organic I had to [​IMG] and say, "well, the rubs I use that I don't make myself must have something in them to keep them from caking up...". Jeeper's and some Creeper's! Pastrami organic? Dang, don't think so unless you want to pay a LOT more lol.

    Anyway, before I left to my new job, I mixed them up(the leavin's -anyone remember "Married with Children? You'll know what "leavin's" are, especially "toaster leavin's [​IMG] ) with a bunch of mixed salad greens, cukes, tomatoes (wanted onions, but had to be "sociable" [​IMG] ), and Pastrami Leavin's! Then I added Balsamic Vinegar dressing over the top of the cukes. Shook them up today for lunch and boy-howdy that was good!

    The rest of them either brought sandwiches or went out and brought something back- by the time the got back everyone was Smellin' the goodness of my salad. Sort of fun [​IMG] .
