  • Smoker
  • aluminum foil
  • thin blade knife



  • Unwrap the bologna chunk.
  • Use a very thin blade knife to poke holes through all the sides and edges of the bologna to allow barbecue flavors to seep inside throughout the cook.
  • Spread about ½ cup of your favorite barbecue rub on a plate and roll the bologna chunk around in it to fully coat all sides with rub.
  • Heat grill to about 300-350 degrees and add pecan wood to the fire.
  • Set bologna on the grill standing up on its end, using indirect heat to cook. If using direct heat, lay it down on its side and cook like a hot dog, periodically rolling it around to ensure even cooking on all sides.
  • After about 45 minutes, transfer bologna to a large sheet of heavy duty aluminum foil.
  • Coat the entire bologna with a good amount of your favorite barbecue sauce and fold the aluminum foil to create a tent, sealing the bologna inside.
  • Return the wrapped bologna to the grill for another hour.
  • Unwrap the bologna and slice to eat.
