“Smoked. Meat. Nirvana.” – LA Magazine
Ugly Drum ships its famous Burnt End Sandwich Kit nationwide on Goldbelly! You have never had a Burnt End sandwich like this! Open only on Sundays at Smorgasburg L.A., Ugly Drum garnered an immediate cult following. There’s a reason why Ugly Drum still has some of the longest lines years after opening.
Their pit-smoked pastrami is smokey, melt-in-your-mouth tender, sweet, peppery, and sinfully decadent. So what is it that sets Ugly Drum apart? They have developed a method that is a glorious hybrid of Texas barbeque and classic New York deli technique.
Ugly Drum uses fattier whole briskets that are wet brined in Ugly Drum’s proprietary seasoning blend for several days. Then, they are pit-smoked over low, indirect heat with mesquite charcoal and whole logs of oak and pecan wood for at least 10 hours. Just one bite of these pit-smoked pastrami burnt ends will have pastrami and barbeque fanatics wondering how anything could taste so good!
Ugly Drum pastrami is hailed nationwide as some of the best pastrami that has ever been made. Created as a personal passion project by Chef Erik Black as a hybridized technique, Black combines his homemade classic Jewish pastrami brine with Texas-style pit-smoking. Previously available only out of Erik’s oil drum smoker (the “Ugly Drum”) at Smorgasburg Los Angeles, this Texas pastrami with a cult following is now just a click away. Ugly Drum has been lauded as “Smoked. Meat. Nirvana.” by LA Magazine and Vice Munchies described the pastrami as a “Beautiful Meat Mutant.”
