Seems that I can't buy corned beef in my area unless it's St. Patty's day. So with that said, I am going to try and make it at home.

I have done a little googling and came up with a few recipes but I wondered if anyone else has a proven recipe that they have used before?

That sounds good Adam -- may have to give that one a try. Usually I use pickling spice and salt for the brine and add garlic and onoins when I cook it.

Nothing wrong with pre-mixed pickling spice blends, although I don't normally use them because I want more control over the components and want what I'm working on to NOT taste like most of what's already out there.

My thing right now is getting the ratios nailed down for celery juice (extract) or celery seed powder in place of curing salts. Close, but not quite there yet.

Fixed that for you brother.

BTW, we have to figure out how to both be in LA at the same time sometime. I'll take you to Nate n' Al's.

I used to sell homemade corned beef through the mail. Granted, it was 400 dollars a pound, but it was pretty half-assed.

Just let me know the day and time! :D (but give me another 6 weeks so I can get out of this boot and walk normal again -- at least I hope I will be able to walk normal again)
