    Corned Beef on sale this week,so I decided to take a stab at the Pastrami Sausage ( Brats ).Started with a small piece just over 2 pounds,soaked and changed water for 2 days.


    Have one of those freeze packs for the grinder works great


    mixed my Pastrami rub in 



    I added 1/3 cup NFDM and 5 oz. beer o the above mix fridge over night


    Decided to cook them like Brats so small pot with 2 bottles of beer


    Got the grill heated to use indirect heat


    Brats on to brown a little


    Poached to an IT of 190* F


    Cut shot with a Pickled Tomato 


    Sandwich for dinner


    These came out tasting very close to Pastrami next time no poaching

    Thanks for looking

    Points for another creative way to use pastrami!

    How about splitting it down the middle & stuffing with Swiss, then on the grill to melt it. 

    Onto a bun with kraut!

    Looks great Richie!!! I am definitely going to have another go at this.  I think you might have gotten a more pastrami like flavor than I did because you probably ended up adding more rub.  Today is the last day to buy the cheap corned beefs so I better stop at the store on the way home from work!  Points!!!

    How much pastrami rub did you add per pound of meat?

    This is a great smooth smokey porter. It's from Cascade lakes Brewery. They rebranded it this year to Paddle Board Porter. All us locals still call it by its original name, Monkey Face. Which is named for a rock formation at Smith Rocks here in Central Oregon.

    I had this thought since last year,seeing Chris try his way and figured if it tasted good fried. It should be good cooked like a Brat. Thanks for the point I appreciate it
