Corned Beef/Pastrami Poll

I was a little surprised that around 40% "don't touch the stuff".

    I eat it however it's served but prefer it on the lean side.
    My uncle loudly announces that he'd like his with full fat.

    Mostly lean, but not more than three quarters of a pound of meat between the slices of rye.

    I like my corned beef fatty, but my pastrami lean. Most places around here only serve either lean though, and they don't make it in-house.

    Cavandre, that figure is bogus. Someone's been vandalizing the polls the past few weeks, stuffing the ballot box with their particular choice.

    I bet you'd find more folks that enjoy Cod Cakes, Baked Beans and Brown Bread...The diners and taverns in the working class suburbs and neighborhoods of Boston are full of them...
     
    I've got to play devils advocate with you Bruce, I knew that poll had your name written all over it!

    The non-vandalized figure is about 5%.

    Why would anyone stuff the ballot?
    They think the results will serve some purpose?

    Mar, I hear there's decent NY style corned beef in SoCal, but I haven't found any in the SF Bay Area.

    Between Langer's, Brent's and Katella Delis for the Jewish style and Johnnie's Pastrami and The Hat for dipped sandwiches, we do not lack for good pastrami in SoCal.
     
    I can see the meat slicer's union packing the ballot box though------pastrami makes much more of a mess!

    I wondered because it went from way in last place to leading the polls over night.
     
    1/2 and 1/2 or fatty or lean
    ITS ALL GOOD!

    What's NY style? 
    BTW, Kenny & Zuke's in Portland makes an acclaimed pastrami, but I doubt they   
    appreciate calling it NY style. Probably Portland style would do.

    I think Langer's serves New York style... hand sliced and thick.  I think a sandwich runs $14 or more.
     
    Johnny's thinly slices, steams/boils and piles it on.  It's around the corner from Tito's so I don't get there much.

    That's a beautiful picture!
    No offense intended, but I'm making a distinction between what I can get my part of CA--which is often made with eye round instead of brisket--vs. what you can get in NY at places like Carnegie (see photo above by iluvcfood), hence "NY style."  Ours lacks the flavor and juiciness, and totally falls short of what you can get back east (or maybe Portland).  There's a place near me that makes its own pastrami, and it's interesting, but not traditional NY deli style, which I miss.

    Oh, I'm not offended. I thought one HAD to use brisket in order for it to be Corned Beef or Pastrami. I learn something everyday.

    I live in the very far edge of the Chicago burbs...... I don't ever see either corned beef or pastrami like that. There used to be a local place that served fantastic corned beef sandwiches but now long gone. Buddig anyone?

    I like Buddig ham, my grandmother would make me sandwiches with that all throughout elementary school. I don't eat it very often, but still like it. Never tried their corned beef or pastrami, might have to now.

    Ha--yes!  I totally agree about the brisket.  But apparently producers out here use the same curing process on eye round instead, which just doesn't cut it, as you can imagine.  They probably shouldn't even call it pastrami!

    Not using Brisket for Pastrami/Corned Beef is akin to using tofu to make Burgers. Eye of the Round Pastrami, LOL!

    Just guessing, but I'll bet it's better than turkey pastrami.
