Smoke rings in smoked meat are caused by: low temp cooking, wood combustion at high temps which produces nitrogen dioxide (ND), moisture on the surface which helps move the water-soluble nitrogen dioxide into the meat > form nitrites &nitrates (pink smoke ring) in the meat. If the temp isnt high enough to produce the ND— which is an issue more common with electric versus wood/charcoal smokers, its less likely to produce a visible ring. In my experience, emulsified meats (like hot dogs & bolognas) also tend to have a higher moisture content & can be less likely to absorb any ND that is present. The product should still taste great, but the ring may not be present.
