Corned Beef Brisket?

I have not had good luck with a couple large briskets I've tried, so I thought I would back up and try something small. I have a small corned beef brisket and I'm looking for ideas and thoughts on cooking it. I did look in the recipe section and did not see much. Once done I'm hoping to slice it thin and make a great Ruben. Thanks for any thoughts.

Soak and rinse well. Apply mustard and black pepper and corriander and smoke away.

Re: Corned Beef Brisket?

Soak it like Nick said. I would do 2 hours minimum changing the water at least once. Do a search and you can make pastrami out of it if you desire. I used this recipe and it turned out pretty good.

Try this method on your next brisket, its almost fool proof.

Re: Corned Beef Brisket?

Inquiring minds want to know .... Once I smoke the corned beef it becomes pastrami? If I just wanted corned beef I would prepare it differently?

Re: Corned Beef Brisket?

Smoking it with the addition of pepper, coriander and garlic makes it a pastrami. If you want corned beef don't add any seasoning. If you are going to smoke it you still need to soak it in water to leech some of the salt solution out.

Thanks John, I think I'll follow the VWB recommendation you suggested.

Buzz

You asking about taking a raw brisket and corn curing it, or a commercial corned beef and smoking it into pastrami?

Check out this thread.

If you want to keep the corned beef, after you smoke it, take it off the smoker and coat it in a honey mustard glaze. Crank the heat up a bit on your smoker and throw it back on to set the glaze, kinda like with ribs. Man you will have some good eats there!

You can also get it happy with some smoke for a few hours and then finish it in a roaster steamed in the tradtional method.
