Default Smoked Corned beef?

Has anyone ever done that, and what did you think? I've got one left over from Saint Paddys day, and I was thinking about smoking it low and slow with some apple wood.

I’d be careful with store bought corned beef. It can and usually is a salt bomb.

You can soak it in the sink in a few hours before smoking to pull out some of the salt.

Or just cure your own. I do it all the time and the results are nothing short of spectacular.

Thanks guys I had no idea that how pastrami is made. I thought it was a different curing process based with pepper. It is going g to happen Tuesday or Wednesday.

oh brother I know it's a salt bomb, and at my age I should care. But I kinda do... it is a dish that is only served in the first 1/4 of the year a couple of times so it's an indulgence. I love real corned beef and potatoes with eggs for the left overs.

It's one of my favorite things to smoke. I cure my own, then smoke it. My GF makes this honey mustard sauce that is great on it too. Kind of like a glaze that I brush on at the end of the smoke.

As has already been said, If you are using a piece of meat that was vac packed at the supermarket YOU MUST soak it in water. I usually do this in the fridge and change the water at least 2x. Other than that go for it, it is great!!!

The same glaze that I use. I cook it in a ceramic dish in the oven in the glaze on low for a couple of hours and then put it in the smoker out of the dish and use the glaze in the dish to make a creamy honey mustard sauce.
