If you are looking for a spring / summer item to BBQ. A fellow I worked with told me his uncle did the following when he was a kid. Well we tried it and it is great.
- Buy a full sized baloney from deli or make your own.
- Need a rotisserie for the grill
- peel the wrapper from the baloney and cut spiral cuts around the baloney this will allow for fat to drip out.
- run the spit rod through the middle of the baloney.
- set grill to lowest temp to maintain 170- 200 degrees. You may have to open grill lid to maintain low temp.
cook time 1.5-2 hours basting with your favorite BBQ Sause. It will get a thick saucy texture. A caramelly browned color also. remove and let stand 5-10 min rest then slice 3/8 to 1/2 thick serve on bun garnished as you wish or eat it as a baloney steak. Both ways are great.
@Denny Sounds interesting for sure, I think if we tried this I would use our Lebanon seasoning and add a little hot pepper to the mix first. I like the thought of spiral cutting it! If you do it again you know we would LOVE to see some pictures!
@PapaSop I don’t buy too many packaged sausages these days (thanks to Walton’s!) but these were very good. They were on sale for $3.99 so I figured I couldn’t go wrong!
I used the above seasoning on the pork along with an extra dusting of cayenne. The ‘Chicken Red’ works really when used liberally on chicken or pork. I don’t normally use premixed seasonings but this one is good and work fast to infuse flavor. It gives everything a great color. It’s salty and garlicky with a little heat. I stumbled upon it by chance and have only seen it at a grocer an hour from me. I stock up any time I get that way.
Very nice. Johnsonville? Wow, from my home land. Pretty much how we judge all brats. Enjoy!
Forgot to mention the taste of the chops after all that. Very good, unique. Will do again.
@PapaSop no deals on chicken but I picked up some bone-in loin chops and some chorizo to go with my grilled jalapeños and asparagus! Everything turned out perfectly moist and juicy. The brats (Johnsonville) were better than expected. If the Excalibur chorizo brat seasoning is as good as those I’ll be quite happy.
