The origin of this classic sandwich is uncertain but legend has it that it comes from the 1930's Conti's Grocery out of Patterson, N.J.. The sandwich got it's name "Submarine" from the Groton Navy Submarine Base in Connecticut. During World War 2, this huge sandwich was fed to returning sailors and solders because it was quick to prepare and inexpensive to make! This classic sub is essentially a 12 inch Italian bread stuffed with cold cuts including salami, prosciutto (dry cured ham), capicola (dry cured pork shoulder) imported ham (cured ham), provolone cheese, roasted peppers, lettuce, tomatoes, onions, oil and vinegar, and then often oven toasted! Watch this how to video as one of the BBQ Pit Boys show you how easy it is to make one of these classic sandwiches, (that also goes by the name in some parts of the USA -Grinder, Hero, Hoagie, Cosmo, Po'Boy, Spuckie, Wedge, Zep, and Italian) using the BBQ grill, old fashioned brick oven style!
