    Ran out of smoked cheese (because I'm lazy), and finally had to start another batch.  While at it, smoked a corned beef brisket for St. Patrick's day for Reubens (our favorite way to have corned beef.

    We got this at Cash and Carry for a little over $3 per pound

    Into the Davy Crockett at 275F until internal of a little over 200F

    After foiling for about 2 hours, the pastrami is ready

    Man the Reuben sandwiches we made using this juicy pastrami were excellent

    Passed the kid test!

    Meanwhile in a parallel smoke, here are the cheeses of the day: creamy Havarti, two types of Gouda, medium and sharp cheddar, and horseradish

    Blocked up and ready to roll. I use a Bradley (OBS) 4 rack and purchased 4 more jerky racks placed upside down for 8 racks total.

    Smoking away - used alder pucks and smoked for about 3 hours

    Packaged up and ready fo go into storage for at least 6 weeks and up to a year or more if it lasts that long

    Man that looks tasty! I keep telling myself I'm going to try smoking corned beef. With St Patty's day there may be some sales. Is that all there is to pastrami? Just smoking corned beef?

    Thanks for the kind comments, gents [​IMG]

    SmokeyMose - as I understand it, smoked corned beef is the essence of pastrami
