Hanging to dry the casings while the smoker comes to temp.

Using some Bradley (pucks) rounds for the wood. These i have had opened and they were swollen and will not go through the Bradley smoke generator, So i will use them this way.

Nepas, as I was looking a your bologna my 76 year old father came back by the office and I called him in to look at your marvelous creation.  He looked, very slowly and read your statements, then he had a very loud  MM MM, he said "Son, if you can get the recipe for some regular plain bologna from that guy, I'll buy every thing you need to make a chub or two and help you make it!".  This is the first time he has ever said anything about helping me smoke anything, let alone paying for it, (He is an ultra conservative, thus my name Barry.......named for Sen. Barry Goldwater).  So nepas my friend if you have a recipe for plain old regular bologna and can point me to it I would really like to get Dad involved, he is running out of things to do and this would be a good thing that I think he would like.  Love the looks of that new smoker, I have got word out at the school board that I would like to have one of those proofers so I may have one before long!  Thanks nepas, excellent bologna and an unexpected spark of interest from my Dad!  Keep up the good work!

i see you take off your casings  before you froze  them,, just  a idea  i keep mine  on  to help  from freezer burn...

and  sometime i  wrap the  sausage with foil before puttting

them in the bag  to help from freeze  burn  just  thought i throw my 2 cent in,,, but  they  look great  thanks  for the pictures.
 
That ladies and gents is some FINE bologna right there! I'm just sitting here giddy over those chubby's. They look great.

Lol, in the first shot I was wonder'n what the heck's that in the bottom of that little glass of beer. Then I realized it is a bottle with what's probably to sinch down the ends of your casings.

Thanks for sharing this beautiful masterpiece!
