Soak corned beef overnight in plain water in refrigerator. Mix all spices until well combined. Remove from water and pat dry.  Coat entire corned beef with spice blend and rub in.  Place remaining spice rub on top of meat and “pat” so it stays in place.

Once meat is tender remove from smoker and allow to rest for 30 minutes before slicing. Serve as is or on a sandwich with rye bread and mustard or horseradish
