Last saturday me and my wife went down to Amishville to do the tourist thing. Went to the Bird In Hand farmers mkt and i took this pic of the local smoked goodies. I had to do some ring bologna today.
Digging deep into my secret vault for a good ring bologna recipe. This is true Amish using buckwheat flour. The buckwheat is in the large bag.
Mixing the buckwheat with the cold water and other ingredients.
All mixed and ready for stuffing.
Ran out of natural bung rounds so i have to use synthetic.
Just a little over 5 lbs.
Hanging at 130 no/smoke to dry the casing some. Then PID to 140 with apple smoke....150....160....170 final smoke at temp. After the IT is reached i am going to do a second smoke/cold with apple. The ring on the right is the same size as the others, I just didnt draw it as tight.
