Smoked Bologna Chub Recipe For Sandwich On A Pellet Grill

smoked bologna on a cutting board

Ever tried smoked bologna chub on the pellet grill?

You can eat this Bologna sandwich the way you would eat a hamburger. With all the condiments and on a bun.

Remember that the Bologna is pre-cooked and all you need to do is bring it up to the temperature you like to serve it and I prefer a temperature above 145 degrees F.

My experience is that it takes about 3 – 4 hours to get it up to 145 degrees internal.

My go-to pellet flavor is Hickory although I have also used Oak. The reason I use a strong flavor is that the Bologna basically is not smoked that long to absorb the smoke flavor.

Tips For Smoking Bologna

Smoking bologna on a pellet grill is a simple 4-step process that only requires 4 ingredients.


  • Remove skin
  • Cut slits in the bologna
  • Add mustard and seasoning
  • Add BBQ sauce


  • Bologna
  • Mustard
  • Seasoning
  • BBQ Sauce

Have a look at your grocery store and buy whole bologna instead of pre-sliced.

When you add the mustard be generous since it does not add a lot of flavors and you need it as a binder for your seasoning to stick to the surface of the bologna.

One mistake I made the first time I smoked a whole bologna was to press the rub into the mustard coating. This made a mess and was an unnecessary step.

Just sprinkle your seasoning on the mustard and move the bologna to the pellet smoker.

Internal Temperature

As I mentioned above I warm my bologna up to over 145 degrees F. I like it to be nice and warm.

Although many of the latest model pellet grills come standard with at least one temperature probe many older models are not equipt with them.

For those, I recommend a wireless thermometer to keep an eye on your internal temperature.
