For me its easier to slice for smoked bologna sammies, instead of smoking the whole chub.

I can only get the small Chubs here in Ga, like 2-3 lbs. I haven't checked Ingles though. Wallyworls, Publix, Kroger, but not Ingles. Thanks for the info Rick.

Next time I get a chub of bologna I'll slice it before smoking. Bet its a whole different thing from smoking it whole.

Used to have the Bar-S brand in 5# here for most of my life. But 5 years ago or so they were no where to be had. So I started making my own.

I totally agree. I mostly do double-thick for smoking, then splitting for two sammiches.

FWIW - Walmart deli can hand cut some to my desired double-thick slice.

Ate it that way when I was a kid . Grilled not smoked . I love the stuff .
I go to the meat market and have him cut a pound or so from the chub . Then slice myself .

Growing up my mom would fry bologna with a big spoon full of mashed potatoes and cheese on top. Great meal for four growing boys. I still love bologna, never had it smoked. I'm sure it's delicious.

I love to smoke baloney and the best way I have found is to slice it thick and then smoke it on the pellet smoker, a rub on it and less than 2 hours its done, vac pack in 5-6 slices for a weeks worth of lunch.

Its really hard to find meat departments that sell it in the chub , maybe in the deli departments but it crazy expensive there . I used to sell a ton of it in chunks and it was inexpensive .I had one gal come in every week and buy a 3# chunk for sunday dinner , I think she baked it . Somehow it tastes alot better than the pre pak sliced. Im going try it grilled , sounds pretty good

I make my own bologna, so I can do what I want with it. But lately I have been getting lazy & may go your route Rick. It sure would be a lot easier.
