This bologna was not used with UMAi bags as it was hot smoked.
I lived in Lancaster County, PA (Amish country) This type of bologna is very popular there.
1 level tsp cure one going to be mixed with 1/4 cup distilled water.
Mixed. Let the bologna rest in the fridge 12-24 hours before stuffing. You will thank me later.
You can use any bologna mix for this. You will need to add 5 T sugar and 1/4 cup dark molasses.
Chubs ready for the smoker. Made 1 long one so i didnt have no meat waste. Hung at room temp for 1.5 hours before hanging in smoker.
My 3 & 4″ casings are hiding so i use the 2 1/4
Rolling hickory pellet smoke with my 6″ grenade. PID at 150
9.5 Hours later.
These sweet chubs are done, bloomed and going in fridge for a couple days before i slice one and vac seal.
2 days later.
Gotta get the casings off and ready for vac sealing.
Casings peeled right off clean.
Slice and taste…..Yum
Seltzers got nothing on me 😀 😀
Vac sealed and ready for traveling.

Rick, as always your pictures and posts amaze me. I do have a question out of curiosity though…is that smoke house of yours actually a trailer that you pull with your RV or is it lightweight enough that you place it on a trailer or in a trailer when you do move? Also do you ever have a problem with complaints during your smoking process? RonSeptember 11, 2014 at 4:29 am #8566
The smoker i use is a Bradley 4 rack smoker. Its just for sausage making now. The 4 rack fits right into a cargo bay under the RV. It weighs about 20lbs. I dont use the Bradley round wood for smoking as i can get better smoke using my A-MAZE-N Smoker with pellets.
My walk in smokehouse (profile pic) is still up at our home in NE PA. I had to sell all my larger smokers and pits because of the limited space. I did however keep my processing tools, stuffer, grinder, dehydrator, dry cure equipment and items needed for this.September 11, 2014 at 6:04 am #8567Ron PrattMember
Thank you for clearing that up! Seems like every time I saw your avatar the picture would flash through my mind of your smoke house looking like an old outdoor privy and I would laugh at the thought of your expensive 40 foot RV tooling down the road with this out house on trailer wheels complete with a furnace needing a smoke stack right behind it! No offense meant, just my weird sense of humor and vivid imagination at work! RonSeptember 12, 2014 at 10:14 pm #8568quote RRP” post=5960:

I would look like the beverly hillbillies.
When i was building the smokehouse i thought about a half moon but tossed the idea for the outhouse look.
