New Year's BOLOGNA: Q-View Plus.... - Page 2

post #21 of 32


Copied it to mine, that's for sure!  EXCELLENT post and tutorial!  Where did you get the poacher?  Wonder if an electric roaster would work?  Just checked and this one goes from 150° to 450°.. available at Walmart - http://www.walmart.com/ip/Hamilton-Beach-22-Quart-Roaster-Oven-Stainless-Steel/14320882

I think that is what he used pops, I never thought of using one I used to heat up a standard roaster on the stove top, then I saw another thread a little back where they used the electric roaster, and I thought to my self geee what didn't I think of that

An electric roaster that gets down to 150° would work fine, Pops.

 

I managed to locate mine on Craigslist. The seller inherited it from his aunt who never used it. Like new, sitting in her garage for half a century. He used it once to see if it worked & decided to sell it. Lucky me. I like the height of this roaster so I dont have to bend down nor find a tabletop for it. 1950 Westinghouse Model RO-91....baby works like a charm! Retro-cool with that 'high-tech' analog timer on the front...

Hey cougar I have the exact same set up you have here, the roaster we have is an old hand me down from my wifes grandmother and we were lucky enough to find the stand cheap at a flea-mrkt,

it is hard to find the stand/base around here any more

Some of the online prices I've seen for this same unit are ridiculous! But it shows there's still quite a market for the old-school retro stuff!

 

I used this unit for making a 22-lb turkey recently. Came out fantastic, moist, evenly-cooked!

Hey Kevin / Cougar78 - How do you store it? Do you slice it and vacuum seal it then freeze it it small batches or leave it whole?  Thanks

The smaller ring chubs i've left whole (for slicing off hunks) in the fridge.

I've taken portions of the sliced bologna (large chub) and have done the following:

     a.  some goes into ziplock backs in the meat/deli drawer of the fridge. (quick access)

     b. some gets put into freezer ziplocs & put into the freezer (secondary access)

     c.  the rest gets vaccum packed (food-Saver) for freezer storage (long-term access)

 

Since the boys are still plowing through it so quickly, I'm constantly pulling bags from the freezer to keep the deli drawer stocked.

I dont think I really have to worry about long-term storage.

Thanks, Kevin, I can't wait to try out your recipe. I bet it feels good to know what your kid's bologna is made of! No mystery meat, that's for sure.
