I’ve never smoked bologna.
Theoretically, I still haven’t, and if you don’t like green olives, olive loaf, or pimento cheese then this probably isn’t your bag. If you do, high five. Apparently smoked bologna has its origin in Oklahoma. My first time having it was at FirewiseBBQ
. Immediately liked it.
Second time was when I was introduced to bologna and pimento cheese sandwiches by Kari Luke
, World Food Champion. I never turn down pimento cheese, and it’s just the perfect accompaniment to bologna and doesn’t overpower it.

I believe Fox Bros Bar-B-Q
makes a version called the Carl Ruiz, in honor of the late chef known for his Cuban sandwiches and Food Network fame, who passed away so very young. Smoked bologna, pimento cheese, pickles, mustard, and Fritos. I can dig it.
So that brings me to todays version.
