Greetings From The Lebanon Bologna

Discussion in 'Roll Call' started by hounds51, Apr 25, 2009.

  1. Hi everyone I finally got a chance to sit down at the computer.
    Name here is Dennis, I am curently working Hospital security at the Hershey medical center in Hershey P.A. My home town is Lebanon P.A, which is known for it's famous Lebanon Bologna. I have been reading the posts here for quite some time, and I learned a bit from you all. I have a Brinkman charcoal ( gas convereted ) smoker, which I also can convert to electric which I have an element for.
    I am currently building/rebuilding an old stone barbeq grill and converting it into a smoke house. I have taken pictures of the varing stages of the rebuild. (if anyone wants to see)The lower part is old mountain stone, with a new lumber top. I plan on using propane for my heat source and some home made cold smoke guns.
    The reason I use Hounds51 is because back in the day I ran bloodhounds for search and rescue and with local police departments. I did this for gags and giggles, as my old job was with General Electric enviromental controls, as an electronic technican.
    I have tried to smoke some stuff with varing success. The chicken and fatties come out the best for me, although I did smoke a real good ham for Easter. I smoke with oak and hickory, although oak is more plentiful and also milder than hickory.
    If anyone is interested I will gladly show you my pictures of my smoke house
    Thanks Dennis

    Good to have you along. Keep us informed of the smoker progress. I've got an old cinder block shed (for lack of a better description) that may get made into a smoker someday.
  9. Cajunsmoke13 We have a hunting camp up pine creek valley, near the P.A. Grand canyon beautiful country up there!
    Also used to dream about opening a chain of Lebanon fried bologna restraunts, I even had different fried bologna / burgers in my imaginary burger joints. It's hard to beat good old fried Lebanon Bologna!!!!!!

    You got that right, Raised on that stuff. Wish I could get it down here. Need to find a recipe and try to make some. I always bring some back when I go home. PA Grand Canyon is nice. Used to camp there every summer. Welcome. How about some scrapple?
