I have not made a SS, only tasted the nasty ones from the mall during the holiday season. So I am trying to figure out what to try first. I like tend to like big flavours; spicy, garlic, smoke and paprika. Any protein will do but beef or pork would be easy to start. I was thinking of trying a generic SS or Martins Amish ring bologna, but only straight. Any input to keep a rookie on the right path will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
