    Well folks,

    It's time for another smoke 'n post!

    Today it's pork spiedies smoked with apple wood! Spiedies are usually grilled, but today I decided to smoke some. Here is the wiki link to the article on spiedies for those who have never heard of them.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spiedie

    Mrs. Meowey's father lives near Binghamton, NY, so I've been familiar with spiedies for over 30 years.

    I'm using Lupo's Original Spiedie Marinade. We picked some up on our way home from the Charlotte road trip a few weeks ago.

    Will post more Q-View later along with the taste test results.

    Take care, have fun, and do good!

    Regards,

    Meowey

    Meowey, that looks great, have to admit I grew up in Jersey (left in 66) but
    I have never heard of them.

    They look nice! Chicken, beef, pork, anything! Is is "speedee" or "spiddie"?
    They look like a great way to get some smoke in the belly pretty fast, they can't take that long to make. Thanks!

    Well folks,

    Tha family said I could do this again. They were in the smoker for about 2 hours at 225-230F. What was missing from not being browned on the grill (maillard reaction) was more than made up for by the smokey flavor.

    Sorry Illini - the offset is still in Atlanta in transit to here. The major ingredients in the sauce are oil, vinegar, garlic, salt, spices (italian variety), and sometimes lemon juice.

    Doc - thanks for the rep addition.

    Keywesmoke - it is pronounced speedee!

    You can order Lupo's Marinade online at http://www.spiedies.com/

    I was too when I discovered that when I first got the smoker. I will often put 4 or 5 ABTs on a skewer and hang them in the smoker instead of putting them on a tray as they get more exposure to the smoke.

    Take care, have fun, and do good!

    They look delious! What are Spiedies Meowy? It it the meat or is it the sauce?

    It's the meat marinated in the special sauce and usually grilled. Today i smoked them to see what they would be like. You can use any meat. Here is the wiki link so you can read about it in depth. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spiedie

    Hope this helps.

    Take care, have fun, and do good!

    It seems to be fairly localized to the Binghamton area and the Southern Tier. Hope you like them. As I said in the first post of this thread, Spiedies are usually grilled. I found that they also play well with the smoker.

    Take care, have fun, and do good!

    Looks good to me. I love speides! If you want an alternative, try some chiavetta's marinade. It's a little stronger (vinegar based), but is very good served the same way as a speide.
