One of my favorite appetizers at Rendezvous in Memphis is the smoked sausage and cheese tray. At another BBQ restaurant the tray included bite sized bologna chunks which were perfect for dipping. Recently I was asked to bring a dish to a group BBQ meal so I brought my favorite appetizer tray that includes, smoked sausage, smoked and grilled beef bologna, cheese cubes, pepperocinis and bread & butter pickles.
Everyone went crazy for these chunks of smoked bologna dipped in my homemade BBQ sauce, so simple yet so full of flavor! Nobody had ever heard of eating bologna as an appetizer. I would like to see more BBQ restaurants add this to the menu. Outside of the South I have not seen smoked bologna on many menus, is this popular anywhere else?
- 3 pound beef bolo chub (unsliced)
- Remove casing/outer wrap
- Smoke at 225 for 4 hours with hickory chunks
- Cut 3/4 inch slices and char over hot grill
- Cube and toss with BBQ rub
- Serve with your favorite sauce!
