Smoked sausage and peppers is always a great combination. If you are feeling adventurous try it Oklahoma style and add some chunks of bologna as well. Many folks may already do something like this on the grill or even in the skillet but using my original rub (Purchase formula here | Purchase bottled rub) for the seasoning and cooking it in the smoker for a couple of hours will really kick up the flavor.

  • Vegetable or Olive oil

Step 1: Prepare the Meat and Vegetables

If you are doing sausage with bologna, you will want to have about 4 sausage links and about 2 lbs of bologna.

If using sausage only, you'll want to use an extra 3-4 links.

Cut the sausage up into pieces that are about 1-2 inches long.

Cut the bologna up into chunks as well. Don't forget to remove the wrapper 😉

Remove the stem, core and seeds from the peppers and slice them up into strips as shown.

Slice the onion into pieces.

I went ahead and put everything in the bowl to make sure it was going to fit properly.

Looks good!

Step 2: Marinate Overnight

Place the meat and vegetables into a large ziptop bag with ½ cup of oil and 1 cup of Jeff's original rub (Purchase formula here | Purchase bottled rub)

Place the bag into the fridge overnight if possible to let all of the flavors meld together or at least for a couple of hours.

When the marinating is finished, pour the contents back into the 9×13 or whatever container you are using.

Step 3: Smoke Sausage and Peppers with Bologna

Set up your smoker for indirect cooking at about 225°F for 2 hours or until the vegetables are sufficiently tender to your liking.

Apply smoke from cherry, apple or your favorite smoking wood for at least 1 hour or you can keep it going for the full 2 hours for great flavor.

Stir the meat and vegetables 3-4 times during the process to make sure the smoke has access to everything.

When the vegetables are tender to your liking and the meat has had time to get sufficiently hot and smokey, the dish is complete.

Step 4: Serve the Deliciousness

Serve over rice or on top of buns and enjoy!

Thank you for the great advice. Followed your rib recipe and everyone loved them. Used your rub and sauce. On point!  -Charles W.

Love the sauce and rub recipes. So far I have used them on beef ribs, pork ribs, and different chicken parts. Can't wait to do a beef brisket. Texas rub is great as well!  -Peter S.

Love the original rib rub and sauce! We have an annual rib fest competition at the lake every 4th of July. I will say we have won a great percent of the time over the past 15 years so we are not novices by any means. However, we didn't win last year and had to step up our game! We used Jeff's rub and sauce (sauce on the side) and it was a landslide win for us this year! Thanks Jeff for the great recipes. I'm looking forward to trying the Texas style rub in the near future!  -Michelle M.

I tried the rub on a beef brisket and some beef ribs the other day and our entire family enjoyed it tremendously. I also made a batch of the barbeque sauce that we used on the brisket as well as some chicken. We all agreed it was the best sauce we have had in a while.  -Darwyn B.
