10 Pounds Of Bologna
« on: February 13, 2011, 06:34:25 am »
Did 2 batches of bologna chubs yesterday.

One Jalapeno (3 chubs) and one black pepper (2 chubs)

Jalapeno and a baby chub.



Black pepper.


Hanging to dry the casings while the smoker gets to temp.



Keeping Bradley oriented. Once i get the 5" hole cut for the smoke generator i wont have to do this.



Hanging the chubs.



Was pretty cold out yesterday (22*) and took awhile to come to temp. Here they are blooming. Fridge rest for a couple days then i will slice.

Can't wait to hear how they taste. If you need more counter space I would gladley take those jars with the yellow labels off your hands.

Thanks everyone

I take the casing off because sometimes you get moisture between the casing and sausage. No biggie really but i just dont like it.

I've never had homemade bologna.  It looks very different from the Oscar Meyer I used to eat as a kid. I'm guessing it has to do a lot with the coarseness of the grind vs an emulsion... but also the quality of meat and content of fat.  I'm curious, can you even compare this to Oscar Meyer or did I just insult you? (sorry)  Looks awesome though.
