I've been waiting to make something that I considered to be appropriate for my first blog post here, on Grub Hacker. Surprisingly, none of the imaginative wild game dishes created in my kitchen seemed to be able to make the cut, and I ended up choosing this!
Inspired by the most recent episode of No Reservations, and an appealing recipe in Charcuterie, I decided to make fresh pastrami. There's nothing quite like getting fresh, hot pastrami on rye bread from a hole in the wall deli; the results of the following foray into recipes from the aforementioned book are just as fulfilling.
The recipe is very easy, just brine, smoke, steam and serve. Pardon all of the pictures, I'm just becoming more comfortable with my camera and starting to get good pictures. My only regret is that I am unable to stop time and passing by clouds in order to have the sunlight right for pictures.
