need bologna recipe

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey i just got a new Brinkman Gourmet Charcoal Smoker Grill and i wanted to make some deer bologna on it as my first round of smoking. I have a recipe for deer bologna, but it takes liquid smoke. I was just wondering if anyone has any good recipes for 5-10 lbs of deer meat. I prefer to mix my own seasoning and not use the store bought seasoning packets. Thanks

I've used this one before with beef and pork fat and it turned out really well.  I've added chopped pickled jalapenos, mustard seed, and a few other goodies a few times as well.


This recipe comes from meatsandsausages.com


Meats Metric US
beef 700 g 1.54 lb.
pork trimmings 300 g 0.66 lb.

Ingredients per 1000g (1 kg) of meat

salt 18 g 3 tsp.
Cure #1 2.5 g ½ tsp.
white pepper 2.0 g 1 tsp.
paprika 2.0 g 1 tsp.
allspice 2.0 g 1 tsp.
coriander 2.0 g 1 tsp.
water 150 g ⅝ cup


  1. Grind meats through 3/16” plate (5 mm). Keep lean meats separately from fat trimmings. Refreeze and grind again. Refreeze again and grind through 1/8” (3 mm) plate.
  2. Mix lean beef with all ingredients adding ⅓ (50 ml) of cold water. Add lean pork and ⅓ of cold water and mix well. Add fat trimmings and the last ⅓ of water and mix everything well together.
  3. Stuff firmly into 40-60 mm beef middles or fibrous casings. Form 18” (40 cm) long sections. Use butchers twine to reinforce the ends and form a hanging loop.
  4. Hang on smokesticks for one hour.
  5. When sausages feel dry to touch, apply hot smoke 50-60º C (120-140º F) for 2 hours.
  6. Gradually increase smokehouse temperature to 70-77º C (160-170º F), until internal meat temperature reaches 154-158º F(68-70º C). This should take 45-60 minutes or more depending on the size of casings.
  7. Shower with cold water for about 10 minutes.
  8. Hang for 2 hours at room temperature and then place in a refrigerator.
