Smoked Sausage and Baloney

Discussion in 'Electric Smokers' started by jted, Apr 2, 2015.

  1. After seeing Jeff's Smoked Sausage and baloney I knew what I was going to smoke for the carpenters and plumber at the house.

    We have had a few nice days of highes in the mid 60's and 70's during the last few days. I caught one of those day's to smoke up some lunch for the boys . As Jeff did in his recipe I used sausage and bought very thick cut slices of baloney ( setting # 20 on the deli slicer) Those were about 1 inch thick, Green peppers Yellow and Orange also I smoked those on the bottom shelf and the meat on racks 2 & 3. I put the sausage on skewers just to keep the pieces together. While the meat was smoking for 2 hours at 230 I cooked 2 cups of dry rice and mixed it with more peppers and onions that had been sweated with kidney beans and a can of corn. BOOM!  Red bean's and Rice.I used several tbs of Mike mills Magic Dust and a a couple of tsp of a mixture of Garlic powder onion powder with oregano and Black pepper. I cut and marinated the meat and peppers the night before.

    Our dinner


    After dinner the wife and i decided that the large 2 and 3 bite chunks were to big as a meat item at dinner. They would be good as a party side item.,  I will use hickory instead of the subtle Pitt Masters Blend that I used and lower the temp to 225 and put more smoke on it to a total of 3 hours. All in all a great smoke with out the hassle of bugs.  Jted

  3. Thanks,  I guess the Baloney was not a big hit with the guys on the forum. I guess when I smoke some Chicken feet for soup that won't be a big hit either. Oh well different regions have there own likes and dislikes.

    I was about 30 years old when I  first saw them in the meat counter in a country store. That was 33 years go and store is still in business. I  had no idea what they were of what they were for. I asked a lady behind the counter and did she ever laugh. Country folks don't waste much and know what is good.  Jted

    Boy howdy that all looks great and delicious, Jted! But #20 setting on which deli slicer? I hope to have one in my kitchen someday but all the in expensive home models seem to have problems per the reviews. Just curious as to what you bought.
     
  7. I don't have a nice slicer. The slicer that cut the meat was a commercial Hobart ( I think) deli counter slicer in my neighborhood grocery store.I sure wish I had a Hobart slicer.The larges cut it will make is a #20 that is about 1 inch.  When I buy regular Baloney to fry I get it thick cut at #7.

    jted nice job on the food. I would eat that Baloney even if it was knife sliced yummy.Did you cook the beans and rice separate?

  9. Hi, I cooked the rice by itself I also sauteed the onions ,peppers ,garlic and threw the beans then the corn at the end When it was cooked I mixed it together with the spices and then the rice.

    This gave me something to do during the smoke.
     
  10. Now I know what I am going to try out next!
