Lots of places sell them in pre-marinated packages, but they dont come close to homemade, and your recipe sure looks good.

Pops, I used to drive through Binghamton yearly on my way to Pa. to hunt. I wish I'd known about that sandwich as it would have been worth the stop!

I've only used the store bought mix in the past. Or used Italian dressing. I'm going to try this this weekend.

thanks for sharing pop's, when I was younger my sister worked in the Endicott-Binghamton NY area and used to bring spiedie sammies home with her and they were great, tried making them a few times with different recipes but they never tasted the same, i tried the lupos marinade and that was probably the closest, i'll have to give your recipe a shot. now ya got me thinking of taking a ride to Binghamton for some.

Love Spiedies, especially Lamb. I had family in Endicott and as a kid, we got up there a couple times a year. Put a Greek Uncle, an Italian Aunt, together with Lamb and her Spiedie Marinade...I've not had any Lamb that amazing in years! BTW... Make sure to reserve some Marinade to sprinkle on the sandwich. The fresh Punch of Vinegar, Garlic and Herbs, makes, grilled meat, an Award Winning Sandwich...JJ

Thanks for posting this Pops. I am going to bookmark this and give it a go with some chicken and lamb! I’ve seen a commercial version of this sauce at Kroger’s next to the State Fair chicken sauce but never tried it.
