Mix all above until it''s in solution, then soak a 10-11 lb brisket flat in it, in the refrigerator for 72 hours, stirring or flipping the brisket occasionally.
NOTE: You can start with a corned beef brisket and skip the initial steps if you want to shorten the process.
Remove the brisket, wash the spices and stuff off, then soak it fresh, cold water, in a food-grade bucket (get one in the bakery department of your grocery store for free - they get fudge icing in them) for 2-3 days, changing the water at least 3 times. Remember to keep the water cold (below 40F) by adding ice or placing it in the refrigerator.
NOTE: I found you can move this along by injecting ice water into the meat just as you would for brining. About a day with several changes of water worked for me.
Remove, pat dry, sprinkle liberally with a mix of 2/3 cracked coriander seeds, 1/3 cracked black pepper and a couple of tbs. of garlic powder.
Cook at 250 in some oak smoke for about 11 hours, until it passes the fork test.
Smoking it to an internal temp of 175-180F passes Jack's fork test.

Jack has gone from us but is not forgotten.
I used a corned beef brisket that I got on sale instead of brining my own.
