Since it is already corned I would apply a pastrami rub and make pastrami from it.

Soak it in fresh water in the fridge for 8 hours or so to desalinate. Add rub and refrigerate for a couple of days before smoking, chilling, and steaming.

This is the rub from Habs pastrami recipe,it's a good one


   Dry Rub Ingredients:

      3 TBS. coriander seeds (4 TBS. if you don’t have white peppercorns).
      2 TBS. black peppercorns
      2 TBS. yellow mustard seeds
      1 TBS. white peppercorns
      2 TBS. of granulated garlic
    Makes enough rub for one brisket flat.

    Smoking/Cooking Directions:

      Combine the first four ingredients, and coarsely grind in a spice grinder
      or coffee grinder. Pour ground mixture into a bowl, add the granulated
      garlic and remix. Apply the dry rub to the brisket generously, working the
      rub into the meat by pressing it in with the palms of your hands. Air dry
      in the refrigerator for 4 to 8 hours, or overnight before before placing
      it in the smoker.

Hey Guys,
I've got This Brisket in the smoker ( just put it in) Wondering about the vent? I know for most things it is supposed to be open to let moisture out. open or closed in this situation?

thanks

Looks really good Johnny, but how does it taste? Nice colour and just a little fat for flavour smothered with mustard. Are you married??

Haha Ed,
Taste was great! just a tad salty for my liking and I'm a Newfoundlander lol.. I soaked it in fresh water for 10 hours, next time I think I would soak for 15 hours.. maybe even longer.
If I had my time back I would have sliced some on the deli slicer nice and thin for sandwiches.. I can taste in now,,, Rye bread, corned beef, sauerkraut and swiss!!

Not sure as to what cut of Brisket it was Ed, All I can say is that it come in a vac sealed bag as in the photo on top of this thread.. Didn't look the best of it when I first looked at it lol
I will see if I can post a picture of it before it was cooked and maybe you can tell from that.
