Pastrami from Store-Bought Corned Beef

3/17/2024 – St. Patrick’s Day

This smoke is cheating as we did not corn the brisket but bought a 2.66 lb. Murphy and David’s Corned Beef Brisket at Rouces. The piece selected appeared flat in the package and without muscle seams. Once opened it was a very clean, square piece of the brisket flat. This cook turned out great.

  1. Preheated the Recteq to 225° with Master Blend Pellets.
  2. Washed off the red basting liquid from the package and let drain, then used a paper towel to remove most of the water.
  3. Seasoned moderately with 6POGS and heavily with fresh ground coriander seed.
