    I definitely want to try this, Bobby... I had a friend who used to do Venison Sauerbraten, which from my reading seems somewhat similar in method to this. ^5 to you, and Danke!!

    Yo Bobby. I do something similar but never thought to add the beer (shame on me). That would give it a whole new taste. Now that you have opened my eyes I'll give your 5 method a try. I do one of these a month so it will be soon. Thanks

    Wow, this recipe sounds really neat, and is quite different from the other recipe I tried from 6%*&@*!.com. I bet the beer makes it so much better. Thanks for the post.

    Thank you Bobby,
    The only Corned Beef that i grew up eating came from one of many yummy Deli's in the City. I've never had a recipe to make it with & now I do.
    BTW, where does one purchase salt peter or pink salt? As I'm with you all the way about the color. Pink over gray, any day;-)
