2kg (4 lbs) corned beef look for the lean or flat (brisket is best or silverside works well also )

FOR THE PASTRAMI RUB

3/4 cup Smokey Joe's Aussie Outback rub

1/4 cup Smokey Joe's Pepper Steak Rub


what to do

Soak your corned beef in water and let it sit in the fridge overnight.

Once done, pat dry with a paper towel, then apply a thin coat of mustard on both sides of your corned beef

Mix the two rubs then put In a spice shaker, shake until evenly blended, then apply a liberal coat to your corned beef, now converted to pastrami.


Smoke at 225 for about 6 hours, or until the internal temperature is 160.
