Country Style Bologna
This isn't the light pink stuff in slices that you put in a kids sandwich. It's a dark red, all-meat smoked sausage that's hardy, filling, and flavorful.

Country Style Bologna Preparation
Grind lean meat and pork fat through a 1/2-inch plate.
Add seasonings and cure. Then mix and regrind through a 1/8-inch plate. Mix 6 minutes and stuff into fibrous or natural casings.
Hang the sausage in a 185 degrees Fahrenheit smokehouse until the internal temperature reaches 152 degrees Fahrenheit (about 4 hours). Remove sausage from smokehouse and immediately place it in cold water until the internal sausage temperature is 90 to 100 degrees Fahrenheit. Hang the sausage at room temperature for about 1 hour before refrigeration.
This will make about 24 rings of sausage. Each ring is about 3 servings.

My Father-In-Law made this in a smokehouse on his Wisconsin farm. When they said they were having "ground bologna" sandwiches I was put off until they were served. They were delicious.
