i always boil it first and then freeze it and only add the glaze and put it in the oven right before i am going to serve it. this way it is tender and delicious!

Definitely go for the flat cut over the point cut. It's leaner and easier to slice. The point cut has a load of fat.

I store my left over boiled corned beef in VacPack bags in the freezer, I just put the frozen bag in cold water and bring to a simmer to heat it comes out good as new.

Not very often! In the month or so I've had it there's only been two day it didn't have food in it...and on those days I was still eating the previous batch.

I cooked some corned beef tonight in the pressure cooker, about an hour. Before cooking, I soaked it in cold water for a couple of hours to help further reduce the salt content. It turned out very well.

It still had that corned beef taste without all the salt. Quite tasty! I am preppeing the other two I bought in the same way. Then, once cooked, repack in my new Foodsaver.

I finally broke down and made Shrek buy me one. Only after I bribed him with split pea soup.

I've never baked it, for fear of having a tough piece of meat, but I have cooked it in the crock pot and it came out great. I use the crock pot as an alternative to boiling it.
