Looks great! What does steaming the pastrami do to enhance it?

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.

Oh yeah that looks good.

what is the difference between corned meat and pastrami?
The lazy do not roast any game, but the diligent feed on the riches of the hunt.

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.

Sounds like I need to make two roasts and try them in different styles - dang I'm getting hungry for some hash.

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!
