Thanks again, Rob! That's a lot of very useful information. And, as others have said, very well written up.

Finishing up this thread. So here's what a finished pastrami looks like. Who would ever want to eat this? Looks like a metiorite.

And here's what it looks like sliced. A little cole slaw, pickle some mustard on rye bread.... heaven.

FWIW my pictures aren't really doing justice to the "reds" the meat is actually bright pink.

OK. So ran across this article this morning on oven smoked pastrami. Looks like it would cut a couple of days if not weeks off the process and you wouldn't need a full smoker.

I'm a purist but that said, I can't think of a good reason why it wouldn't work. Planning to give it a try when I get a chance.

Great threat! Finally I know how it's made. A bit complicated for me to do, but great to know. Thanks!
