  • One-quarter cup brown sugar (dark)

  • ​Two teaspoons onion powder

  • Two teaspoons smoked paprika (mild or hot depending on your preference)

  • Two teaspoons cracked black pepper

  • One-half teaspoon cayenne pepper

  • One tablespoon sea salt (coarse)

  • One teaspoon ground mustard

  • ​Two teaspoons garlic powder

Spicy barbeque sauce

  • One can containing fourteen ounces of crushed tomatoes

  • One-half cup apple cider vinegar

  • Three-quarters cup brown sugar

  • One teaspoon onion powder

  • One cup ketchup

  • One teaspoon chili powder

  • Two teaspoons ground black pepper

  • One-half teaspoon red pepper flakes

  • One-half cup molasses

  • One tablespoon of smoked paprika (mild or hot depending on your preference)

  • ​One tablespoon salt

  • One teaspoon garlic powder

  • One-half teaspoon ground mustard


  • Start by getting your smoker ready.

  • Place your wood chips into the side tray.

  • Your water pan needs to be filled half-way.

  • Use a combination of your favorite brown ale and water.

  • Make sure your top vent is fully open and preheat your smoker to 225 degrees Fahrenheit.

  • You will be preparing your smoked bologna while your smoker is getting hot.

  • Mix your black pepper and brown sugar together.

  • Take off the plastic or wax wrapper on your bologna.

  • Use a sharp knife to score your bologna.

  • Make certain your cuts are a maximum of one-quarter inches deep.

  • If you prefer, you can also score your bologna into one-inch squares or one-inch diamonds.

  • Take your mustard and completely coat the entire roll.

  • Pat your pepper and sugar rub into your mustard.

  • You need to make sure your bologna is coated completely.

  • Once your smoker has finished heating, put your entire bologna right on your upper rack.

  • You will need to replenish the liquid in your water pan and your wood chips about once every hour.

  • If you are using our spicy barbeque sauce, this is what you will use to coat your bologna roll instead of the rub.

  • You will still need to use your mustard first.

  • Your smoked bologna will need between three and four hours to cook depending on the weight.

  • You will know your meat is done when the exterior is a little crispy and nicely caramelized.
