Subject: RE: BS: the people who make the corned beef
Dave's Wife: I take it that you do not buy the corned beef in the sealed package with the little mixture of herbs, right? You must buy a regular beef brisket and do the work yourself. It sounds good!

If you would like a good recipe for smoked brisket let me know, I'd be happy to PM you a good recipe.

Country Ham, by the way, is prepared differently from the more regular bone-in hams available in most supermarkets. It is cured and cooked slowly and placed in a smokehouse and exposed to smoke for another long period of time. It's very salty and the preparation is pretty time consuming. It's worth it, though. I love Country Ham. I can still imagine the wonderful smell of the hams seasoning in my grandpa's smoke house on the farm in Texas in the early 1930's.
