Anyone ever smoke their corned beef? Oh, my, my, my! A friend has a Traeger and the first time they prepared corned beef for our brew club the whole group went into silent ecstasy. I've managed to duplicate it in my cheap smoker. I start it in a 200F smoker for a couple hours or so, naked, (not me, the corned beef) toward the last, paint it with a fruity BBQ sauce, (raspberry chipotle mango orange habanero mash up) then wrap in foil and finish in a slow oven until it's as tender as you want. Seriously doubt I'll ever go back to traditional way of cooking it.
BTW, if you don't know it...while your corned beef is still a bit warm, wrap it VERY tightly in cling wrap and refrigerate. When you take it out, it's a nice solid block of meat that you can slice paper thin deli style for sandwiches.
