Mike C., thanks for the exellent article. I was in Newark in the early 70's
and had a chance to try Pastrami like I have never had before or since. I am
just getting into the low and slow after the earlier articles of Mike
McKoffee and will love to try your recipe.
Can Morton Tender Quick be used as a replacement for the Prague Powder #1?
Morton(r) Tender Quick(r) contains salt, sugar, propylene glycol,
sodium nitrate
and sodium nitrite. What is your source for the Prague Powder #1.

Kaufman's Deli & Bagel Bakery in Skokie makes its own nice and juicy  
pastrami (but you have to go there in person).  And I hear that  
Romanian Kosher Sausage Co. in E. Rogers Park has the best--but they  
close at 2 pm and are in a "challenging" neighborhood, to put it  
delicately.
