Ha. Funny but true. I am the farthest thing from a Republican, but every time I go home I cringe at so much of the nanny-statism. Sooo many rules just for the sake of having rules.

Never thought of it as such.

It is deli food.

It's closer to corned beef than smoked brisket.

No. It's hot smoked in a smoker chamber but it doesn't come anywhere close to a fire.

Quote:

Montreal-style smoked meat, Montreal smoked meat or simply smoked meat in Canada (French: smoked-meat; sometimes viande fumée), is a type of kosher-styledeli meat product made by salting and curing beef brisket with spices. The brisket is allowed to absorb the flavours over a week, and is then hot smoked to cook through, and finally steamed to completion.......

Quote:

Smoked meat is the result of a method of preparing red meat, white meat, and seafood which originated in the Paleolithic Era. Smoking adds flavor, improves the appearance of meat through the Maillard reaction, combined with curing preserves the meat. When meat is cured then cold smoked, the smoke adds phenols and other chemicals that have an antimicrobial effect on the meat. Hot smoking has less impact on preservation and is primarily used for taste and to slow cook the meat. .......

Canada is a country of 35 million people located next to a super power, this is bound to happen with people making big moves south. i think we can all move past this nationalistic mindset and not look of it as a big deal to have to go to another country for something... and i would wish both our countries could work closer together and develop a open border similar to the E.U.

I believe I've told this story before, but again: I was the chairman of a committee with 12 others that flew weekly to Montreal for meetings over a period of 5 to 6 months every other year and we would be given orders to bring back smoked meat from either Schwartz's or Dunn's.

Picture the scene of 13 carry-ons containing nothing but huge cuts of smoked meat being stuffed into the overhead bins and the resultant aroma wafting through the cabin of a Rapidair 727 with noses perking up and sniffing the air all throughout the aircraft.

The flight attendants got to know the routine so well they'd sometimes incorporate it into their flight announcements that they were not responsible for people arriving at Pearson with their stomachs growling. You would often see people peeling away from the line of passengers heading for the luggage turnstiles to grab a quick bite of something to assuage their stomach gnawing away at their backbone.
