Recently, I've noticed on several of the food channel shows dealing with tailgating, grilling etc, people have been smoking large chunks of bologna. Has anybody tried this? Is it worth the effort?[p]Carl T

    Carl T,
    Never tried smoking any but have fried it. Good stuff. If grillng it is half as good frying it I say go for it.

    JJ,[p]On the show I saw this on, there was a guy with a large trailered smoker. Right next to the ribs and butts, he had several large sections of bologna. They had an attractive looking crust. I remember fried bologna. On toast with mustard and a slice of cheese, it's pretty decent. But then my wife says I will eat anything.[p]Carl T

    Carl T,
    I will get a slab of bologna tomorrow at Wally World and throw it on my EGG while doing some Tanker Tim's Okinawa wings and let you know the results.

  • Carl T,
    My mother used to fry bologna in butter in a cast iron skillet for breakfast! My wife gags when she hears me tell how good it was. It was the poor family's meat for many years. Bologna, chicken and potatoes were the mainstay, and now $8.00/lb steak isn't good enought some times. Go figure!

  • Carl T,
    I have not made it myself but, I have had smoked bologna. We had a small rib joint outside town that offerd it in a slab on a bun for a lunch deal. I always thought it was ok . It can be a little strange on the digestive tract. I just couldn't think of a easier way to say that. HA Good luck

  • Carl T,

    Carl T,
    We used to do the BBQ bologna when I cooked with a team in MIM contests. It's good and different. We always scored it and either poured sauce in and on it, or used a spicy rub and then put the sauce on at the end. This was all in an indirect cooker at a low temp, sauce did not burn that way. You can always smoke a while and then wrap in foil.

    Have fun,[p]Ray in Lubbock, TX

    Carl T,
    Man, fried bologna, it has been a long time. Had that many a time for breakfast back in Alabama. It it does make for a good sandwich, with mustard, mayo, tomato and lettuce.[p]Thanks for the reminder, may have to fry some up in the next few days.[p]Ray in Lubbock, TX

  • Babyray,

    Here you go..[p]Dylan
