Stinque Recipe Challenge

Changing it up this year – corned beef for Thanksgiving:

Brining 4.5 days instead of the recommended 6-7 as I had a bad experience brining a pork loin for more than a day. Also, used 1/4 cup less salt, and adjusted spices because this is a 2.5 pound brisket, not 8 or 10 pounds. Recipe after the jump.

“Plan ahead about a week … you won’t be sorry. This from-scratch corned beef is better than any commercial corned beef you could ever eat, and you’ll wonder why you never tried doing it yourself before. I do not add salt and peter to my corned beef, so this is not going to have that familiar pink color, but you won’t care — and it’s healthier this way.”
