    bill.......the pastrami that i have had before.......deli's and such.......was too dry for me........but momma loves it.......hopefully this won't be as dry as past experiences have proven.........plus, for tonites supper, it will be done as french dips........which should help the moisture end of it

    not really guy...........my first attempt.........i pulled it at 160.......its resting, getting to room temp, then refridge to firm up to slice into deli thin slices

    just put the abts on

    okay..........lets finish this thread up............

    let the pastrami sit till room temp.........than refridged so it would firm up

    here it is cut in half.........looks WONDERFUL, and the rub was excellent

    [​IMG]

    another shot, with some of it sliced up.........we are going to use rye bread with swiss........unfortunatly no sour kraut in the house.........

    [​IMG]

    this "pastrami" was VERY moist, not like the dry stuff that momma normally brings home.........

    and the finished up abts.........1.5 hours @250.....with the bacon pre-cooked abit, so i know it will crisp up in the smoker

    [​IMG]


    and the plated up sandwiches

    [​IMG]

    the au juis it from the cornedbeef, with some leftover au juis from aways back........and some boston butt drippings.........man was it great

    fireguy.........i would DEFF. try this...........prob. one of the best sandwiches i have EVERY had
