    I used a recipe from Malcom Reed,
    Soaked two corned beef flats in cold water 12 hours, changing water every 4 hours to remove salt. Made the rub. Dried flats and applied a heavy coat of rub. Into the fridge overnight.
    Fired up the drum, GURU set at 275, it ran dead on. Hickory for smoke, out of pecan. Got the flats on, smoked to 193 internal and removed from drum. The flats went into two aluminum half pans with foil ropes to support flats. Poured in 2 cups beef broth and covered with foil. Both went on the smoker to 202 internal to steam and tenderize the meat. The rub was really soft, removed flats from pans and directly back on the smoker for about 30 minutes to set the rub. It is cooked at this point, let it rest a bit and in to the fridge overnight. Slices better when cold.
    Sliced about 1/8" thick. Tried a sample, LOTTA HEAT!!! Too much black pepper. Removed some of the rub and made Rubens.
    Jane made homemade Thousand Island Dressing, Frank's Sweet Kraut, Swiss cheese, good rye bread. Grilled on the flat top in our new IKEA kitchen.
