Last saturday me and my wife went down to Amishville to do the tourist thing. Went to the Bird In Hand farmers mkt and i took this pic of the local smoked goodies. I had to do some ring bologna today.

Digging deep into my secret vault for a good ring bologna recipe. This is true Amish using buckwheat flour. The buckwheat is in the large bag.

Mixing the buckwheat with the cold water and other ingredients.

All mixed and ready for stuffing.

Ran out of natural bung rounds so i have to use synthetic.

Just a little over 5 lbs.

Hanging at 130 no/smoke to dry the casing some. Then PID to 140 with apple smoke....150....160....170 final smoke at temp. After the IT is reached i am going to do a second smoke/cold with apple. The ring on the right is the same size as the others, I just didnt draw it as tight.

One of the best parts of living in this area is the Amish, Mennonite, and PA Dutch recipes/goodies.

They look great NEPAS, I've never tried it with buckwheat, do you need to add a lot of water to the mix?

Also what are ya using for a PID, I would like to be using one but not sure where to start looking.

I found my camera in the car of all places...LOL

Here are some $$ shots of the ring bologna.

Ready to cut the string and rings off so the vac bags dont get a hole.

Oh yeah good bologna. The buckwheat flour gave it a really nice taste, way better than SPC.

Casing peels easy. I soaked the casings overnight.
