Maded pastrami yesterday with store bought cornbeef on sale from St Patrick's Day Sale, sorting cornbeef at store for flats if possible. If you end up with points it's OK cuz just separate point from flat. Soaked and changed water serveral times over 6 hr period before drying it and putting on pastrami rub I made from internet recipe. Smoke it at 215 deg until meat hit 160 deg. Plan on using crock pot on high to steam it (got idea from internet also) for 4.25 hrs then let cool and slice.
