If you are thinking this, this is the weekend to get it started. :D I have a flat that I will put a dry cure on tonight.

I was thinking the same thing. Care to share your recipe? still not sure if I should go with a brisket or a round.

This is the last one I did on a brisket flat piece (based on Oddley's injection cure):

brisket 1690 g
potassium nitrate 0.51 g
Cure # 1 4.06 g
salt 38 g
sugar 25 g

black pepper 2 g
coriander 1.5 g
mustard seed (yellow) 1.5 g
bay leaf 3
juniper berry 6
allspice berry 6
cloves 1

All the spices were crushed up in a mortar.

I just noticed you used nitrate Paul, any particular reason? you don't see that too often.

It was in Oddley's recipe, I just converted it to a dry cure. He said that it had an effect on the taste. It could be omitted from this recipe without any worries.

This works for me. I wish Oddley was around to hear the nice things my guests said about this corned beef.

I did a one pound sampler Friday to see how it was, I cheated and used McCormick's pickling spice and it was heavy on the cinnamon. (which I never heard of) but it was ok. Thanks for the early reminder it get it in the cure Paul. And thanks Oddley for all your contributions to the site.

That looks superb. Oh, how I wish we could get briskets that big.

The starting brisket the above was cut from was just over 3 Kg. Why is there a problem getting large brisket cuts there? Worried about sticker shock. :shock:

Post mad-cow disease, beast are killed younger than they were - hence smaller joints.
