    Italian Grinder

    Whenever I pop up to Medford, OR for a shopping trip (no sales tax!) I always plan my stops around a visit to a little, and I mean little, sandwich joint called Luigi's. They make this awesome sandwich they call the Garbage Grinder. They come in 3 sizes and I can barely get through the small one, though I ate a medium once and thought I was going to die. It's an Italian sandwich with ham, salami, cheese, peppers, and onions that is run through a broiler. It's a crunchy, melty, savory, sweet and salty, peppery flavor extravaganza.

    Anyway, we haven't been there in a while, but I've been jonesing for a grinder and decided I'd try my hand at making one. I scrolled through Luigi's Yelp pics and found one of their menu board listing the ingredients, gathered everything up, summoned all of my considerable memory power, and......uh.....what was I talking about....... oh yeah, made a sandwich. The result was pretty darned close to what Luigi's makes and the wife and I really enjoyed them. She said my version was better, but I think she's buttering me up for something and I'm waiting for that shoe to drop.

    Here's a list of the ingredients used followed by the obligatory pics:

    Soft hoagie roll
    Marinara sauce
    2 slices of deli ham
    2 slices of Genoa salami
    4 slices of block mozzarella
    2 slices of provolone
    Dill pickle chips to taste
    Jalapeno chips to taste
    Sliced sweet onion to taste
    Sliced black olives

    Assemble, place on a cookie sheet, broil on high until the cheese melts and the edges of the meat start to caramelize.

    Thers's a lot more you can add to this like mushrooms, green or red bell pepper, Italian sausage, etc.

    The jones was sufficiently suffonsified.

        So you just slam those two sammie halves together, set a beer nearby, and have at it? Looks delicious!

          Lookin' great. I have made something similar, but I fried and shredded the meat like is done for a cheese steak sub. The cheese goes on top of the shredded meat long enough to melt. That's great too.

              I considered oil and vinegar as well, I'll give it try on the next one. We did onion rings and fries on the side.

              Yum. It reminds me of a little sandwich shop out in the San Fernando valley by the Van Nuys airport. Scrumptious.

                Looks like a great sandwich but around here we call them subs!

                In MASS Italians are made with Genoa Salami, Capicola Ham, Sopressata, sharp provolone cheese, all piled high with chopped pickles, onions, and tomatoes. Drizzled with Olive Oil salt and pepper. Hot peppers optional. On a sub roll or braided Italian roll. NEVER lettuce! Never toasted, veggies MUST be chopped not sliced. You will be shot if you ask for mayo.

                People fight over who makes the best and loyalty runs deep!

                  We have a local shop here in Huntsville called Stanleo's Sub Villa that makes something similar, with the tomatoes, pickles and peppers all chopped. You cannot get it toasted, but they will throw the meat on the griddle to give you a hot sandwich. Mmmm. Hot Kitchen Sink is my favorite, with peppers.

                  I would be truly suffonsified if I got to eat that.
                  Superb.
                  Like you mention lots can be added but sometimes just a few core ingredients make for good enough.
                  Would work nicely using a pizza oven instead of a broiler.

                    On the other hand, in western CT, we called them grinders.

                    Coincidentally, we do have a tomato grinder that was made in Italy. They call it a spremipomodoro.

                  NYC its a hero, can’t seem to call it anything other than that for some reason, although my parents still insist on using “sangwhich”, I cut them some slack they were born in Italy and came as children. When my buddy and I started college in Troy NY we called them hero’s at the deli and they looked at us cross eyed 😵

                  The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

                  Placeholder

                  The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

                  Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

                  Placeholder

                  The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all!

                  The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

                  Placeholder

                  The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

                  Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

                  Placeholder

                  We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5" x 29.5" footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.

                  The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it's easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.

                  Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

                  Placeholder

                  The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

                  This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp's dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin'.

                  Placeholder

                  Napoleon's NK22CK-C Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It's hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the NK22CK-C a viable alternative.
