The pastrami was wonderful! DH said "it tastes like pastrami" meaning

You went with the pressure cooker method? How long for each stage?


On the smoker about 2 hours. I went by temperature rather than time,
so it was at 150 when I took it off.

In the styrofoam cooler wrapped in foil for about 2 hours. Was
still hot.

In the pressure cooker, 20 minutes under pressure and I let the
pressure fall on its own.

We won't get another meal out of it. He just had some for lunch.

There is another corned beef in the freezer, so I'll do a repeat in a
couple of months.
