I had every intention of smoking a corned beef for St. Patrick's Day and posting it here. Somehow I lost a week. It just vanished and yesterday I realized my little project wasn't going to happen.
There are lots of people who have their s--t together more than I. They post ahead. They plan out their blog and stick to their plan. My excuse is that I run a restaurant and have two small children. The best laid plans get swallowed up with last minute caterings, runny noses, and the need to make an expoding volcano now, right now!
So I bring you a little list of folks who HAVE smoked corned beef and can tell you all about it. By the way, you do know that corned beef is brisket is pastrami, right? All the same cut, just different processes. Smoking a corned beef, then, makes it a sort of hybrid between the Irish delicacy and the Texas one. Tex-Ire, or Tex-Land. Whatever. It's delicious.
BBQ Addicts has an excellent post complete with step-by-step up close pictures.
Here is a website of all the things that interest the person that hosts it. From motorcycling to photography to....smoked corned beef. Nice set of instructions.
BBQ Guru on About.com has a simple recipe using an already corned beef.
And finally, here is a yummy picture on Flickr. Enjoy. Wear green! Drink beer! Smoke that thang!
