    My name is Ebben. My Grandparents were Hungarian, Slovak, Polish and Russian and my Grandparents spoke Hungarian around the house. I got started in this since I couldn't find the good old Hunky food anywhere. I now make hurka and frisz kolbasz but need to start smoking to make Fustolt kolbasz and szalona. I live near Memphis so I've done some smoke cooking in my neighbor's barrel. I am buying a GOSM on sale at Bass Pro this weekend for $99 and want to start smoking bacon and sausage. I need good Kolbasz for a Szalona cookout or greasy bread as us kids used to call it. There is a lady at church who speaks Hungarian who helps me translate. I found some recipes at and will try to post the translations when I get a chance.

    Yum... there was a post on the "bacon fry" here a while back. The Hunky side of my family has one every Labor Day. Hard to find good bacon for this...pigs are just not as fat now they say.

    You looking to make something like this? :{)

    Yep. That and paprikas szalona. And anything else I can. People just don't know how good the bacon fry is. When my grandparents had a barbecue, that was waht they had. The trick is good rye bread that we got in Jersey whaen I was a kid.

    Used to be a Hunky town by Detroit - Delray. All gone to hell now, but a kid, what foods!

    A decent sub for the hunky rye is the jewish rye, no seeds of course. It's a little denser...heavier? well more solid than the Hunky stuff, but it holds up well to the pepper/onion tomato mix.

    I hadn't been here in a while.  I just popped in to say I made a brisket on Friday and some szalona yesterday.  I've been busy with the Appleseed Project.

    My wife was raised in a Polish family, 3rd Generation American, so doesn't really remember the recipes but knows the tastes of her childhood.  I'd like to smoke something for her 61st birthday that was truly slavic.  I feel it's important to honor our origins (I'm Welch) so any pointers you could give would really help (or anyone else, for that matter).  We've got until next April to get this figured out.
