If you like pastrami, there is nothing about this recipe you won't like. When Olivia smoked a corned beef brisket for herself, she made one for me and I LOVED IT. I initially used it for delicious sandwiches using Swiss cheese and marbled rye bread. That was out of this world. I found myself going back again and again to the leftover pastrami and cutting off a small piece for a snack. The taste of the "crust" created by the rub is definitely addictive.
The recipe Olivia used came from www.heygrillhey.com. She cheated slightly by using a store bought corned beef FLAT CUT (not point). This bypassed the brine step and went straight for the rub. Olivia mixed the rub, let it sit overnight in the refrigerator on the corned beef, and then smoked it the next day. It is really delicious and I guarantee you will like it.
