Second smoke ever. Smoked Pastrami (With Q-View)

Discussion in 'Beef' started by gotalotgoingon, Mar 22, 2015.

  1. Bought 4 corned beef points at the grocery store when they were on sale for St Paddy's day, 

    Pastrami Rub

    4 tablespoons fresh coarsely ground black pepper
    2 tablespoons coriander powder
    1 teaspoon mustard powder
    1 tablespoon brown sugar
    1 tablespoon paprika
    2 teaspoons garlic powder
    2 teaspoons onion powderPastrami Rub

    I found this recipe here: 

    Soaked corned beef for 24hrs, changing the water every 2 hours for the first 6 hours and then once every 4 hours. After 24 hours I removed from the water and patted them dry. Then I applied a small amount of olive oil so the rub would stick and then got rubbin.

    I then left it in the frig uncovered for 24 hours.

    This morning I fired up the MES 40 and used my A-MAZE-N filled with a blend of hickory, cherry and maple. Set the MES to 275F, let it heat up and put them in. I waited until the internal temp was 195F per my Maverick ET-732 before removing.

    Rested for 2 hours uncovered before slicing. I can say with certainty that I will never eat corned beef any other way other then from the smoker.

  4. Looks great, this is my favorite smoked meat I think. And it's so forgiving. I just did two yesterday in my MES with hickory in the AMNPS, great minds think alike. Your picks are making me want to eat!

    Nice looking pastrami, very moist. Great job. Thanks for posting, David.
  6. Thanks Gentlemen. I couldn't have done it with lurking around here first and soaking up on the tips and tricks. Best thing I did was get an AMNPS and using it instead of wood chips. Really glad I found this site!
