Smoking Corned Beef - first time

  1. Morning everybody,

    I'm attempting my first smoke of corned beef for pastrami. I did my research and followed others here on what rubs to use. 

    Here is what I used:

    4 Tbls Fresh ground Black Pepper

    2 Tbls Fresh ground Coriander

    1 Tbls Paprika

    2 tsp Onion Powder

    2 tsp Garlic Powder

    1 tsp Mustard Powder

    I did follow the recommendation of soaking it prior to smoking to remove some of the brine. Final soak time ended up being close to 40+ hours. Weather yesterday kept me from smoking, winds were a killer. 

    Its in the smoker this morning temps holding steady between 235-240. Will take to an IT of 190 then foil.
