1We use mostly mesquite, but I know this would be delicious with hickory.

2Whether I buy a 5lb chub of bologna or 2 lb roll of summer sausage I always cut it in half longways. I think this allow the smoke to evenly penetrate the meat.

3Time will vary depending on what temp you are smoking with. We smoked the bologna for about 2 hrs at 225°. The summer sausage takes about 1 hr. at the heat.

4I always cube the summer sausage and serve as a snack or appetizer, it's great with smoked cheese.
