    Smoked bologna chub!

    I picked up a 3.5 lbs beef bologna chub. Scored it, lightly rubbed down with mustard then meat churches holy gospel! It was amazing. Sliced and diced with cheese and crackers to munch on while I had people over while the brisket was still going on the WSM.

It is just a head scratcher how ALL 3 things that I have cooked have taken a bit longer to way longer than they have previously. And since all 3 cooks with...
