“Smoked. Meat. Nirvana.” – LA Magazine

You have never had a Reuben 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 techniques.

Ugly Drum uses fattier whole briskets that are wet brined in their 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 a bite of this pastrami will have pastrami and barbeque fanatics wondering how anything could taste so goo!.

I liked Ugly Drum but hubby did not know they were pastrami burnt ends unlike the usual beef or pork. But I'm a fan!

The food arrived a day late, but that was on the part of FedEx and not the restaurant we ordered from. It came exactly as described, included instructions, and was delicious. We will be ordering again sometime.

We used to visit Erik at DTLA's Smorgasburg every Sunday and we moved away 4 years ago, so we have been missing his amazing pastrami. Ugly Drum is incredible pastrami, we just reveled in its taste. Made four separate meals out of one order. SOOOO GOOD. We will be buying more.
