    Bologna smoke time

    What is the best temperature at which to smoke a bologna chub and at what internal temperature should it be pulled?

    I do these at 240 on my pellet pooper. Takes about 1.5-2 hours to an IT of 140ish depending on diameter of the chub.

    Welcome to The Pit. Sorry, but I just grill thick slices of bologna and have never smoked a whole one.

        Then I would do as others have stated. Cut in slices 3/4 inch thick or so a cook to a i.t. of 140ish

      Here is a post with some info. My next one will be sliced first to maximize surface for the smoke and then finished over heat on the kettle. Guess it would be a Bologna Reverse Sear.

      I don’t know why I didn’t post about this when I made it (maybe I did but I can’t find it). I made this in the fall of 2019. It was great. I took it to work then grilled up thick slices there to reheat and just served it on sandwich bread.

      Looking at my photo diary I first scored the bologna and then rubbed the whole thing down with mustard. I then added a rib rub and smoked it for two hours running around 250. I then brushed a BBQ sauce over the whole chub and smoked it for about 45 minutes longer. Here are some photos from my cook.

        No that’s what I’m talking about! Yummy.

      This is a 3# chub. I scored it and rubbed it with the Barbecue Shop's Dancing Pig Sauce, salt and pepper. Smoked about 4
      hours at 240. ​ Cut 1/4 inch slices and grilled with American cheese on toasted buns. It was a hit. Thanks for all the input.
