First is Corned deer boiled and served like traditional corned beef and the second is rubbed and smoked for pastrami.

The colors on those pieces are spot on.

I ate my last piece of corned elk last week.  Cooked it in the slow cooker with onions and beef broth...just peel it off in strings and it is D-E- licious... I have 3 more chunks soaking now.  I definitely want to try the Pastrami route this go around. Thanks for the rub recipe.

Nice! Glad it worked out for you. We really enjoyed it and will be putting the last of our roast in the brine soon.

One of my son's favorite meals is smoked venison cut really thin then served French Dip style.

I steamed while smoking, felt like it couldn't hurt and kept it from getting too dry, though I'm not sure it would have been overly dry without the steam. Will try without steaming next time to test.

Both brined and cured the same.
Traditional corned meat is then boiled before serving.
Pastrami is rubbed with spices and then smoked after the brine/cure.

Thanks xj - after the smoke phase the recipe for pastrami I have calls for a 30 - 60 minute steam in a covered roasting pan before serving. I'm assuming that step is optional and depends upon how you want to serve the final product.

I steamed while smoking with my last one. Pulled off smoker and let cool as long as I could stand it before slicing thin. I do think that it was the best a day later after cooling way down in the fridge for a day. Though I would eat the whole thing hot off the smoker as that was amazing as well.

For a quick and also delicious pastrami, get a bunch of corned beef when it goes on sale after St Patty's Day and smoke that, OMG, yum!

I just finished a batch last weekend (mule deer and whitetail) and it was some of the best meat I have ever had. Man why was I not doing this all along. I made several extra and vacuum sealed them (brined but uncooked) for later.

If I have any roasts left I think I'll cook/smoke them and pack em in on hunting trips next fall...if I can keep myself from eating it all!
