Any recommendations on good pastrami in Des Moines? Everything seems to be mediocre or bought in. Does anybody make their own pastrami around here?

    There is no good pastrami between the Mississippi and the Missouri. You have to make it yourself. Buy three or four pounds of corned beef, cover it in a mix of allspice and cracked black pepper. Smoke it for three or four hours in a water smoker and serve sliced on a fresh loaf of Panera's rye bread. That's about as close as you'll come.
