TSmoked Corned Beef Pastrami In The Masterbuilt Electric Smoker
Published on Mar 17, 2017
The Masterbuilt Electric Smoker did a great job on this smoked Corned Beef Pastrami. I usually cure Brisket to make my own Corned Beef, but I couldn't pass up the deal I got on this commercially cured Corned beef. Whether I am steaming Corned Beef, or smoking it for Pastrami, soaking it overnight is something I like to do to pull out the extra salt and brine solution. This is really a good idea if you are buying a store bought Corned Beef Brisket.
The rub I like to use when Smoking Corned Beef for Pastrami is a very simple rub that is an even mix of coarse black pepper, granulated garlic, cayenne pepper and paprika.
I smoked the Corned Beef in The Masterbuilt Smoker until it got to an internal temperature of 172 degrees. Meat will typically not take on any more smoke after it reaches 150 to 155 degrees, so pulling it at an even lower temperature would be fine since we will be steaming it to 200 degrees in the next step.
One think I like to do is to refrigerate the Pastrami overnight after it cools down from steaming. This allows the rub to really stick to the meat. If you were going to slice the Pastrami right after the steaming process a lot of the rub would come off of the meat.
I do warm the Pastrami up before I slice it just to loosen it up a little bit.
I am going to be making Reuben Sandwich Sliders with this Pastrami for a St. Patrick's day pot luck at work.

I would have gave you a "thumbs up" .....why I didn't is all NYC and Phila pastrami uses ground coriander in the rub and pastrami will NOT taste right without it!!!!

Anyone that owns a Masterbuilt should check the accuracy of the thermometers. My integrated meat thermometer is way off in my Masterbuilt. Otherwise I'm happy with it. In south Texas we need to use the external smoker. In summertime the oven heater doesn't run enough to make enough smoke. I like the external smoker anyway so that I am more flexible and can do a reasonable cold smoke. Thanks for the fine video.

Great video, thanks. Did you put water in the tray or just smoke it dry?

I'm making this tonight. Currently soaking the corned beef in water. Once the kitchen is available, I'm going to put the dry rub on the corned beef and vacuum seal it. Tomorrow I'll smoke it.

Do you have to steam it or can you cook to 170+ , rest and to table? I know Katz does it to reheat it but if I'm going straight to table
