Smoked bologna question
 
I want to do a big hunk all at once....if I vac-pack the leftovers
and freeze them, will it mess em up?

seems like no one freezes luncheon meat...I'm assuming that's
because the texture suffers.

any thoughts?

I freeze lunchmeat all the time. Doesn't seem to affect texture at all.

well I'm feeding one, and I like to cook large amounts at once.

Puff, ever done bologna? did it get mushy? I want to fry it
after thawing, I was hoping that would firm it up some.

Cappy, it freezes fine, just make sure it's cold before you vac seal it. I firms back up once it's chilled. I ate some of this right off the smoker and it was like warm liverwurst and very greasy. However, after sitting in the fridge overnight it was great!

Yep, nope, and It stayed the same as far as firmness.
