So I'm pulling it out today and putting the rub on and letting sit over night. So if the inside of the roast is still red that's fine correct?

Not necessarily! I used to think that if you cut into the meat and it is red, it was fully cured. That is not entirely correct. A few years ago I purchased Marianski's "Home Production of Quality Meats and Sausages". In that book they state the color from the cure does not set until the meat temperature reaches around 140°F.

You shouldn't be concerned, because six days is more than enough time for your cuts of meat to cure.

Just took out of the oven. Had a small taste before I wrapped in tin foil. Very tasty but very salty.
Be able to give a full taste review tommarow.

By oven you mean smoker?  I found once when I smoked and wrapped over night one was salty, but after steaming for a few hours the next day, cooling and re-wrapping came out perfect.

You are welcome! Your Ruben sandwich sounds great. Glad to see everything turned out all right.

Was it close to the same flavor as your father's corned beef? Did the saltiness mellow out?

I would love to see your finished product. For my email you only need to click on the envelope icon that is just left of this messages.

To post pictures you need to have a host site such as photobucket, where you can link your photos from. I don't know if you have seen the below link to how to post photos. If you don't have a hosting site; it will take you through each step on how to setup a Photobucket account and post pictures on this forum. If you have a hosting site, then just skip down to the part that addresses the information you need.

I wanna see also!  A well turned pastrami always turns my head and makes me salivate.
