Post subject: Venison Roast
Using the corned game recipe I am corning a venison roast. Started it yesterday and I double bagged it. Roast

Did we lose a portion of your text? The word roast sort of hangs out there all alone. :wink:

That is a link to the recipe, just click it.
As it worked out my roast weighed 2.2 lb

I plan on pulling the roast tomorrow. What do you think of smoking it after corning?

Isn't that what makes it pastrami?

It would be pastrami. I wondered if the roast would be to lean to be worth trying it.

My first failure. I did smoke the roast. This turned out to be very salty. I have cut it in half and have it simmering in water to try and get as much salt out as possible. I did not use water in the cure. That was a big mistake.

40° brine (10° Baumé) for 1 kg (2.2 lb) of meat

salt, 60 g (2.1 oz or 3.3 Tbs)
Cure #1, 18 g (1 Tbs)
sugar, 42 g (1.5 oz or 3 Tbs)
1 bay leaf, ½ tsp. black pepper, ½ tsp, ground cloves, ½ tsp. dried juniper berries.
Meat can be smoked as well. Follow instructions for smoking Pastrami.

Time in brine is an important factor. Strong brine short time, weak brine longer time.

I went back and reviewed what I did with this venison roast. I did not eliminate the water and my notes say I used the recipe in the link posted in first post. The only difference is I used prepared pickling spice. Link to recipe is listed below as curing recipe.

Curing recipe

Instructions

Place meat in 40° (10° Baumé) brine (see note), cover with weight plate to keep meat below brine.
On the 5th and 10th day, reverse the order of meats (top piece on the bottom, and the bottom piece on top). Remove meat after 15 days.


40° brine (10° Baumé) for 1 kg (2.2 lb) of meat

water, 500 ml (2 cups)
salt, 60 g (2.1 oz or 3.3 Tbs)
Cure #1, 18 g (1 Tbs)
sugar, 42 g (1.5 oz or 3 Tbs)

Meat can be smoked as well. Follow instructions for smoking Pastrami.

The only difference so far is that I have not simmered the meat for enough time.

This is just a stronger salt taste than I am use too so far. We will see how it is after more cooking.
