A one-of-a-kind pastrami soup

Last month, husband Stephen came to me and suggested that we try to make pastrami.

Pastrami is a beef brisket that is brined (for 10 days!), then crusted with spices, smoked to 150°, and then steamed to 203°. When he described it to me, it seemed like an enormous amount of work, and it also seemed like an enormous amount of fun.
