I'm glad I skipped my entry. I thought it might be too similar to Gore.

Actually, truth be told...


My hoagies grew mold.

Well, Gore may not like Cheez Whiz, but as a matter of fact, I don't think he's ever had it, as he thought it came out of a can! That's Easy Cheese, close but not the real deal, which is actually why I entered this throwdown. You see, he asked me if it would be possible to get cheese to come out of my steel whipped-cream dispenser, you know, the kind with the CO2 chargers, and I started thinking it through and when I finally thought to ask him why he mentioned that he needed Cheez Whiz for this sandwich. And that's when we made the distinction between the two. Now I try to avoid eating plastic whenever possible, so when there is a healthy alternative, I make my own. Cheez Whiz is pretty straightforward. It can be made with real cheese, like a colby, in this case, grated really finely. Now I'm not a hater. I grew up with all sorts of cheese-like products in the house: Velveeta, American, Squeeze Cheese, Easy cheese and of course Cheez Whiz. My Dad liked cheese, you see, and he liked it with lots of things. He would always grab a wedge of cheese with his apple pie, but if that wasn't available on more then one occasion he would have it with a scoop of Cheez whiz. He also tried to eat a pot holder once, so he may not be the best one to look to for culinary insight. In any case, I start out with some real colby cheese, finely grated.



I melted this into evaporated milk:



Some recipes call for eggs, but this has a great consistency all by itself, as you'll see. While you're at it, you might like to jazz it up a bit with some sriracha. I added a few doses until the taste was nice.



I wasn't going to do with some store-bought roll, so I made some Italian-style buns:





and I sauteed some onions and red peppers:



Of course I also had some steaks. This is the real dilemma because the standard Philly steak sandwich is made on a griddle and we are required to smoke or grill. Since this is our interpretation, I went with grilling ... and I wasn't going to ruin the ribeyes, so I cooked to medium rare:



It was then just a matter of putting that sandwich together. I sliced the bun down the middle and added a layer of homemade Cheez Whiz to keep the bread from soggying up, even homemade Cheez Whiz acts like an impenetrable shield:



added a layer of meat,



then a layer of onions and peppers,



and finally topped it with more cheese:



Now doesn't that look like the perfect cheese spread, and this tastes like real cheese too!



(Chris, you can use that picture). I only wish I had ever had a real Philly Cheese steak sandwich to know if it tasted like one. If it tastes anything like mine I would Shirley have another.

Thanks for looking!

Sneaking in under the wire with my entry. First time in a throwdown...be gentle with me.

Here's a thread with some background on our sandwich:
http://www.bbq-brethren.com/forum/sh...10#post2222910

Used to cook a philly-style sandwich for a living. Kind of miss the "good old days" when I got to eat these for lunch on a daily basis.

We've combined the philly style sandwich with my sons B.O.M.B. (beef, onion, mushroom, bacon) burger that has brought him much Kid's Q glory.

Here's the short version. Started with some eye round over oak and cherry, seasoned with montreal steak, cooked on the mini:


Cooked, rested, halved, and on to the slicer:






On the griddle with some onions. Bun was buttered, garlic seasoned, toasted:


Mushroom/beef stock combo for the base of the sandwich.


Garlic bun, beefy mushroom goodness, grilled beef/onions, provolone, bacon, more onions, sauce...soon to be topped by other half of bun

(this will be our entry photo)


Some good stuff!! Will be making this again for sure!! It's the B.O.M.B.

I think bigabyte may be having poll disfunction issues. He can't seem to erect a single poll today. Where is Ginger when we need her?

I'm thinking either Biggie's poll is too tired and sore, ... or the skycrane is back at NASA for repairs.

I figured it was from lack of blood flow and he was waiting for another transfusion, that last poll Shirley must have made him light headed.

After that last poll, there is definitely proof that size doesn't matter. Have you considered working on your technique?
