A sandwich that has many aliases grinders, subs, hoagies, torpedoes, heros, but one thing in common - it's real good and real simple to make.

I went down a different path with this one. After the wife and I spent most of the morning and early afternoon finishing up our Christmas shopping. I wanted to Q something simple and quick. Afterall it was 23 degrees out and I was just getting over being sick. So I broke out the 26" kettle and fired it up.

I also decided to change this up and use moinks instead of the traditional Italian meatballs. I won't bore you with the making of the moinks but will include a link to how I make them.

Here they are stuffed with smoke cheddar, wrapped in bacon and sprinkled with Tony C's seasoning.

Oh did I forget to mention. I also added a few pork shots to the mix. Yummmm.

...and the finished product. Jacked up marinara sauce, mozzarella cheese, and Italian bread.
Sorry about the bite shot. I has eager to taste and hungy.

This was really good - one of the best grinders I've made. Next time I'll forgo the italian bread and use regular grinder rolls. As I had to use a fork to eat most of the samwich.

Thanks for taking a peek.

Good job Chris! I never had that before! Thanks for sharing!

Question, how do you like the Weber 26? The reason I am asking, I’m thinking about upgrading.

Wow! Come on next Christmas!
I already made a pot of Burnt ends, Preacher Style. (Squirt of this, a handful of that, eyeball and smell, by the seat of the pants.)
But I want to look into these! They look Delicious!

OH, and No worries about the bite, Chris. That adds Authenticity to the post, my Man!

I was thinking to myself (Dangerous), What is the difference between a meat grinder, and a meatball grinder....

Thanks Justin for the like and words. Try it sometime I think you'll like it. I'm really starting to like the 26" kettle. Allot more space to fill up. I still use the 22" often especially with the vortex. I would go for it if you have a family or cook for allot of people.

Chris, nice smoke ,I'll be over ! :)

Thanks John for the like and compliment. It's a great way to utilize grate space, and feed my need for sammies.

Thanks for the point and kindly words Sonny. You have been busy lately. I haven't ventured out into the bacon or jerky world yet, but it's a coming.

Well, when you are ready, Chris, I'll be an alligator dragging you into the murky depths.
Pork! It's the other white meat!
Pork Loin burnt ends, gone tonight. Pork Jerky scooped up to go home.
Sonny, big smiles!
Merry Christmas!

Thanks dcecil for the like and kind words. You probably wouldn't like our winter weather, but your more then welcome anytime to visit.

Thanks Disco, but I have to disagree. What you put out in your videos and posts is food art. Mine is more like diner food. Also thanks for the like.

Hope I get a few more notepads for xmas, need to and this to the to-do list also. Excellent job...
