View Full Version : Pastrami Burgers

We decided that for the Labor Day week end that we would smoke a brisket (13lbs) and take a corned beef and make pastrami (also 13 lbs) all on our Smokin' Tex 1400. We used recipes from this site to do both of them and they turned out great!!! We took some of the pastrami (after it cooled) and ran it thru a meat grinder to make a burger type consistency. We then mixed it 50-50 with a good hamburger. We had to add a couple of eggs as it was pretty dry. We then added chopped onions and green pepper. As the end result was going on hoagie rolls (toasted on the BBQ) we shaped the meat accordingly. Put them on the BBQ and when almost done added a slice of good swiss cheese. They then went on our toasted rolls, piled a carrot and cabbage slaw on top and drizzled a homemade Thousand Island dressing on top. (Did you know that the secret ingredient in homemade Thousand Island dressins is boiled egg?) These burgers were to die for. My wife says they were the best burger that she ever had (at our age that is a lot of burgers). We will certainly do this again!!! Thanx to Smokin' Tex for making our Labor Day DELICIOUS!!!!
