Smoked Bologna

Added note: Here is a link for another smoked bologna method that I tried at a later date...I really liked the way it came out. :)

I'm not real fond of bologna, but like it smoked or fried or both. :)
I used a 5lb chub of bologna and cut it in half to try two different recipes.

I poked holes in the bologna to help the bacon drippings and smoke penetrate into the meat.

I rubbed each with EVOO, covered one with cracked black pepper and garlic.
The second one was covered with Tony Chacheres Creole seasoning.

I covered both with bacon.

Smoked the bologna in my horizontal wood burner at 225 degrees for about 3 1/2 hours using mesquite.

Served with some fried potatoes and onions, slaw, twangy pickles and some spicy mustard.

Thank you Jen!
I'm not fond of bologna but it was tasty. I did another batch not long ago that I liked a whole lot better. I'll post it in the recipe section.

I do like smoked spam a lot better than the smoked bologna. :)

SPAM rocks! I saw how you scored and smoked the Spam. I'll bet it was delicious. Spam is so versatile. I like to eat it in the mornin' diced up, fried then mix some egg in it but you can put whatever you want in it. You can eat it wif tortilla or bread or biscuits. If you like cheese, you can top it off wif cheese. I personally like a side of pork n' beans with it.

Jen, that sounds tasty!!
I've not eaten much spam..but have recently been smoking a lot of it.

It's pretty good stuff! :)
