Does anybody have a good spiedie recipe? Went to school in Binghamton and fell in love, only to learn it is a regional thing. Any help is appreciated.

thanks Bobo,

I found some on google as well. Was looking for someone with time tested secret recipe. I think I might fire some up next weekend (doing some pulled pork this weekend). I'll report back.

- Dave

PS are you in Mass, or just a Sox fan from elsewhere?

LOL....funny...think it must be a Binghamton/Syracuse and west thing in NY...........I went to oneonta and lived in the Albany area most of my life and Spiedies were something I only ever saw at the county fairs.

It's funny how somethings never make it out of a certain area. Spiedies seem to be a greater binghamton thing. In bing there are several speidie shops and they sell competing spiedie suaces at the supermarkets. There is even a local rivalry over who was the first to make them.

I thing salt potatoes might be another. But I could sure go for a spiedie and some salt potatoes right now.

Dawg - I didn't mean the kind of secret you don't tell anyone, I mean the kind you call secret but then post on the smokering. I'm sure I've seen that done before.

and I am sure the pizza and bagels are not up to standard either........on the other hand..........I likely would have never learned of bbq had we not moved here. I always thought anything cooked on the grill (ala Brookes BBQ in Oneonta) was cooked on the grill.............and frankly for that alone I am glad we moved here.

Spiedie Marinade

Probably a variation of the Italian word “spiedini” which means “skewered” I am told....

from Tom Almy

1 c. Oil 1 Gal.
3/4 c. Cider Vinegar 3 Qt.
1 Tbs. Mint Leaves 1 c.
2 tsp. Salt 2/3 c.
2 Tbs. Lemon Juice 2 c.
1 Tbs. Basil 1 c.
2 tsp Garlic Powder 2/3 c.
4 cloves Garlic 64 cloves
1 tsp. Oregano 1/3 c.
2 tsp. Parsley 2/3 c.
2 tsp. Black Pepper 2/3 c.
Paprika

hey, if you want to make the bulk recipe, don’t do the garlic clove thing like I used to. Find the peeled, diced, and jarred cloves and save yourself some aggravation. You can double the spices and achieve a wonderful marinade. Leaving them as is makes a pretty good one.

Use to marinade pork, lamb, chicken, or beef. Great as a salad dressing. Cut meat into bite size chunks, and marinate for 3-4 days. Skewer and roast over charcoal, serve on slices of italian bread. Marinated onions are great with this, but please don’t use any other condiments than the sauce.

This is from my files, I use this one a lot. The math in the gallon conversion may be incorrect, but it makes a great marinade.
Enjoy!
Just found this website, and I am sure I will be spending some time reading and posting here.
Thanks,
T
