Cheat Pastrami
 
Cheat Pastrami
a 3# packaged corned brisket from Aldi
on the OldSmokey for a slow ride to 150
classic pastrami is corn the brisket first for 7 days
then smoke it to make the pastrami
i just cheat the 7 days of the corning process
by buying the pre-corned briskets at Sam's, Aldi, and just smoke it like any other brisket.
but.. wash/soak the corning brine off of the brisket and dry it
then season/rub it with a no-salt rub before you put it on the pit to smoke. it's already brined.
most of the recipes say to smoke it to 150~160
then seal it up in a roasting setup with water below the rack and steam it to 190~200 like a regular brisket
when the brisket made it to 150 i put the pan & rack, w/ brisket in the roaster for the finish @275 in the oven
with the water in the pan to finish around 200
the recipe calls for the last 50 degrees to be with steam so it finishes moist, not dry

I'm having a pastrami on rye as we speak. When I do these, I just wrap in foil about 150 and leave on the smoker till 200. Yours looks a little juicier though. My have to try the steamer trick next time. Good stuff.
