Default Pastrami, pic heavy

Picked up 2 corned beef flats, 3.5 & 3.75 lbs.


Soaked them in cold water for 30 hours, changing it several times.


Rinsed and dried.


Oiled with some olive oil and rubbed with:

4 T fresh coarsely ground black pepper
1 T yellow mustard powder
1 T dark brown sugar
1 T sweet paprika
2 T granulated garlic
2 T granulated onion
2 T Kosher Salt
4 T Spice House Corned Beef Spice Mix**
½ T ground celery seed
**Was specifically designed for marinating beef brisket. Use 3-5 tablespoons for a 5-pound brisket, along with salt brine. This is a popular blend for St. Patrick's Day celebrations.
Hand-mixed from mustard seeds, Moroccan coriander, Jamaican allspice, Zanzibar cloves, Turkish bay leaves, Indian dill seed, China #1 ginger, star anise, black pepper, juniper berries, mace and cayenne red pepper.



Vacuum sealed and let it rest in the fridge for 24 hours.


Put in the FEC-120 at 160º with AMNPS Tube for 3 hours.
They had to share the smoke with some pastrami jerky and turkey wings.


Then upped the temp to 230º for 2 more hours.


Until the IT hit 152º then foiled and coolered until IT hit 160º


Then it went into the fridge for an overnight rest.
Steamed it for 1.5 hours on a rack above beef broth & crab boil.


I steamed it untill the Thermapen probe slid in how I would call "slicing easy" in all areas (not as easily as I would have on a packer brisket) the temps were in the 195-200º range.


Sliced some a little thicker for dinner.


Sliced the rest thin for sandwiches.


Vacuum sealed the leftovers.


It turned out great, although I never had real deli pastrami before so nothing to compare to other than grocery store lunch meat pastrami and this blew that away. Will for sure make it again, might have to watch the newspaper and see who has it on sale after St. Patty's Day and stock up for another batch.

Get them today. These are a St Paddy's day loss leader. Depending on size you can save about $9 each off the normal price. Smoked one yesterday and it was delicious. Crushed the seasonings in the packet, added garlic and crushed red pepper for the dry rub. Smoked with pear wood for 5 hours and finished in the oven. Made for a tasty sandwich.

Planning to pick up pork bellies tomorrow to do the bacon, and now I see this thread. Looks like pastrami will be on the menu now too.

What temp probe setup are you using?
