I did this two phase cook on my Cobb Grill and it came out quite well. My plan was to start off with a lower temp and heavy smoke cook on the rotisserie with my big chub of all beef bologna and then to convert the cooker over to high temperature frying for the second phase of this cook.



I prepped my five pound bologna chub by cutting some slots around the outside of the meat. I then mounted the meat into my rotisserie setup and sprayed it down with some butter spray for a sticker, then sprinkled on a good spicy beef rub and it is ready for the fire.



This treat is a two phase cook and I like to just use a heavy hickory smoke for the first phase of the cook. I used the standard charcoal basket with 13 all hardwood briquets and two chunks of hickory on top for my smoke. I also added more smoke wood a second time during this part of the cook.



This was the start of the cook and you can see the smoke coming out of the Cobb cooker. I also used the Cobb BBQ Kit cooking grid under my rotisserie setup. This will allow some of the drippings from the meat to go down on the fire for some additional flavor.



This part of the cook took about 90 minutes and the meat has now been smoked and is ready to come off of the cooker.

At this point, I took the rotisserie off of the cooker, replaced the charcoal basket with the larger one with 18 hot briquets, added my grill grates with the smooth side up, and got ready to finish my cook.





I took a head of romaine lettuce and cut it in half. Next step was to drizzle on some olive oil, some sea salt, some fresh cracked black pepper, and some garlic powder. I then just fried it up a little on my very hot cooking grid. Maybe two minutes a side and when it comes off of the cooker, I sprinkle on some parmesan cheese and then dribble on some poppyseed dressing and this makes a fine fried salad.



I like to grill my sandwich buns so they were the next item on the grill.



I like to cook my bacon first so I can then cook the bologna in the bacon grease.



I usually cut the meat pretty thick for my sandwiches. Next step is to fry this smoked meat on the Cobb Grill in the remaining bacon fat.



I have a very hot grill and the bologna only takes about 2-3 minutes a side to get done. I actually like it charred up a little for the best flavor.





I spread a sweet sauce (my veggie dipping sauce) on both sides of the bun, add a slice of lettuce, a slice of tomato, then the bacon and my fried bologna and that is one of my favorite sandwiches. And with the addition of the fried romaine lettuce, makes a great meal.
