    Those look great. What temp did you take them to, and were they tender?

    Thanks for the qview.

    I took them to 160* after 5hours. They were still a little chewy.
    I still plan on steaming the 6 flats that are left from the two batches I did the last 2 weeks! MMMMMMM!!! lots of sammies

    Those look amazing! Woohoo! I recently purchased some ingredients to "corn" my own brisket. You said you're were going to steam them - how?

    After smoking my first strami i had read about steaming. I used a broiler pan . Fill with water put broiler pan on top place strami on broiler pan , cover tightly w/ foil and place in 325 oven. I did mine for 1.5 hours then lifted broiler pan and refilled water . then steam for another 1.5 hours.
    Super moist and tender.

    Another way to steam is if you have a steamer pot or steam pan from a rice cooker, the pots with holes in them, and place that upside down in a large pot of simmering water.
    Personally I think steaming transforms it into an even more succulent and tender piece of meat.

    Yeah, here's what I use, from a steamer set, there are holes in the bottom, lets the steam hit the meat. I usually steam it for 2-3 hours, and agree it's a good way to go!

    Very Fine Looking Corned beef.....[​IMG]

  14. I corn my own briskets and then rub with coriander and BP. This is called Pastrami. I steam them using one of those stovetop smoker thingies. I just use the grate and the box with some water in the bottom. put it on my gas grill 3-4 hours before serving. You can do it in the oven at 275 degrees but your house will smell a little smokey. Not bad but I still do them outside if weather permits. The steaming will transform them from pretty good to fantastic.

    Note: Be sure to soak, rinse after brining for about 1 hour or so with a couple of changes of the water.

    I would never use the stovetop smoker as a smoker inside my house, or at all for that matter since I have an outdoor smokehouse. But they do work great for steaming the Pastrami. I steam them whole not sliced.
