Brisket is the cut of meat they use to make corned beef. If there is anything added, then the beef has already been corned and that isn't what you want.

Derval, how much salt did you use? I sprinkled it like any roast I cook and it wasn't too salty at all. Fall apart tender and had such great flavor.

Love the new shirt. Very cute.

Well, that top will discourage anyone from hugging you! Or am I seeing it right, with a row of pointed prongs sticking up at the shoulder?

Yes, studded shoulders, I never thought of that :D

Now I am thinking maybe I did get corned beef, and added salt to it! Like you I just seasoned all sides. Definitely not the tablespoons of the recipe.

You know, when I saw your photo of it, I thought it had that rosey color of corned beef. I think the TBS of salt was for a ten pounder. It's definitely worth a do over. I rubbed a little liquid smoke on it too. We had it over mashed cauli and celery root the first night and then made a big ass taco salad with it the second night. Delightful.

Dehydrator update, yay! If I had it (I am planning to soon) I'd make green beans and beets in it 24/7. How did the lemons turn out? Did the machine change the taste a bit?

Yes I think they are less bitter. They are still a bit chewy mind you.

I watched the video this morning and giggled. I also only understood a fraction of it. Even what I didn't made me giggle. The facial expressions are just as wonderful. I need to share with my friend who is enamored with Ireland.
