Anyone ever smoke a corned beef brisket?

With post st pattys corned beef cheap in grocery stores, I decided to pick one up. I'll probably use a mustard rub, heavy on black pepper.

Something different. I guess its basically pastrami.

I've thought about it, but never done it. Let us know how it turns out.

Nooooooo

I didn't like it when I did a few of them. I know I will never do one again.

The pastrami recipe I use is on here. Smoked corned beef alone is disgusting.

I'm the same way, but I figure if anything would take the skank out of it, smoking it would.

I've never smoked a purchased corned beef brisket, but I have dry cured a brisket and smoked it. I think I would've liked it better if I had a meat slicer, but I'd rather just stick to smoked brisket.

Hmmm. At 1.88 per pound I thought it might be worth the experiment, but maybe I'll just cook it the usual way and make reubens like I normally do.

Maybe I'm mistaken, but isn't a corned beef brisket already cooked?

Yup, i would highly recommend not smoking it but Ruebens are the bomb.

To me you either make corned beef out of the brisket or you smoke it, not both.

This, the flavors would clash badly.

Smoked two 6 lb. pork butts and a corned beef tip (2.5-3 lb) in my 22.5" Weber, together.

Smoked corned beef makes for good pastrami. The Reubens are awesome! The product is a bit stiff, due to the smaller cut, chemistry and tissue break-down. I wish I had a meat slicer, (I could only hand carve 1/8" th. slices), and some of you guys over.

I smoke corned beef 3 or 4 times a year. I rinse it off well, then put a ton of cracked black pepper and some garlic on it to make a peppered pastrami. Here is a good recipe to follow, but I like to cook it until 185-190 so it is more tender.

I don't like the idea, other than you using it for reuben meat. On a reuben I bet it could be delicious.

i'd like to brine up some brisket again and make some corned beef.

but hard to do since the wife doesnt' like corned beef. so I have REALLY be in the mood for it since I'll be eating for days.

Freeze the leftovers in sandwich bags, so you can make a couple reubens over a few days.

All right, I give up. I bought and froze a corned beef flat because it was on sale, now I'm going to have to thaw it and make ruebens this weekend.

Wonderful advice. It's hard to beat a Reuben for a sandwich.

That looks good to the point that I would consider sticking my weiner in there.

Price Chopper has $3.88/lb corned beef, now.:shake:

Price Chopper has $3.88/lb corned beef, now.:shake:Just remember it depends on the cut.

Uncooked corned beef is sold in both the point and flat cuts. Point being the fatty lower quality, flat being the lean. I bought the flat on St. Patrick's Day for $2.98/pd.

Last year I went with the cheaper point and when it looked like bacon when I sliced into it. It was awful.
