You owe me for that new title. Send me some pastrami!

Sounds like you did a phenomenal job, and the pics are making me drool all over my Keyboard. It seems we share more than just a birthday. We both love, and love making great food. I am a bit envious though. I have made my own home-made corned beef, and I have smoked it. But alas, the DW is overly sensitive to any kind of pepper or "heat", and so I can't use it in my cooking (heavy sigh). I would love to try your home-made pastrami. It looks amazing. Great job!

You could always make two smoked corned beef briskets, one with and one without pepper. I'd be happy to help you eat them. :)

while i agree most pastramis are heabily peppered, there was very little black or hot red pepper in the spices i rubbed onto the meat.

i'd say it was mostly dill seed, celery seed, and crushed bay leaves, and something that gave it a sweet taste, maybe minced sundried tomatoes.
The past is gone it's all been said.
So here's to what the future brings,
I know tomorrow you'll find better things

I thought smoked corned beef was pastrami. Next month (when it is cooler and easier for me to get even low temps) I will brine my own brisket and then make itinto pastrami. Results to follow.
