I'm kicking this old thread. I searched on homemade pastrami. If you have a kindle, amazon has a freebie re: homemade pastrami and corned beef. If you don't have a kindle, you can get the app so you can read kindle books on your computer. Right now it is free, and it was free in May (apparently, I downloaded it to my kindle then!).
It won't stay available for long, sorry if it is no longer available free when you see this post.
