Now that i have the blackstone griddle ive been playing with grilled subs. Here in Detroit Tubby Grilled Submarines has been turning out some fabulous grilled sandwiches for over forty years. These things kick Subway in the face IMO. In fact as a teenager my mothers first job was at a tubbys.

Once a week ive been doning my paper hat and making my own grilled sub creations and i think i have came up with a keeper.......














Brisket philly cheese steak.

Griddled grilled peppers and onions in butter
some chopped smoked brisket
A little cheesewhiz
Toast the bun
Pile on the brisket
A slice of cheese
A layer of veggies

Everything good about smoked brisket came through but in cheese steak form. The brisket gets this little crust from the griddle that is just amazing.

This one had both!

Last time i made cheesesteaks Becky wanted wiz... i went provolone...the saltiness of the whiz really adds something. I tried it and was kinda sold but am afraid to admit it.

That sandwich looks delicious.....but as someone who grew up and lives in Phillys shadow, I always found it funny that all around the country "philly cheese steaks" come with grilled bell peppers, but at most of the legit shops in philly, grilled bell peppers aren't even an option. Long hots usually are available but most Philadelphians use those on what is actually Phillys favorite sandwich, which is roast pork. All that being said, that brisket sandwich wouldn't last 30 seconds on my plate! Nicely done.

Whiz definitely adds a filthy deliciousness that everyone secretly loves but doesn't want to admit lol. Mmmmmm a good Italian roll, thin sliced ribeye, whiz wit onions......I'm hungry

Man, living on the edge. I only ridicule because I haven't had cheesewhiz on anything since my moms celery 20 years ago. I have seen the shows where provel and whiz are the conflicting factors on good and bad sammies. I also grew up in mid Missouri with a restaurant owned by people from Philidelphia who always had provelone on their cheesesteaks. I will have to go get a can of whiz to see if I break out any heartwarming child hood memories...

On second thought, I hated celery. Well, maybe I will break it out and make some cheese steaks and see for sure. I will have to try a "ninja special" to see how it works combined!

The people who run the Philly sandwich shop in my hometown in central Missouri don't even offer bell peppers to appease the locals who probably always expected to have a cheesesteak with bells. I like them, but prefer the real deal better.

Aw man, I think I just drooled on myself thinking about it. :oops:

Dont matter... just some bell peppers.... never new philly cheese steaks didn't have peppers so it really dont matter as thats concerned...round here "grilled steak subs" have pepperers, onioons, and even mushrooms or picked banana peppers...guess its a Detroit thing...

Provolone is very popular in Philly too, lots of Italians in south Philly lol and to be honest, a cheese steak is probably the only thing I'd ever even consider eating cheese whiz on lol

Not a Detroit thing at all. It is a taste good thing and we have been doing the pepper, onion and mushroom thing with ours for years. We just call them pepper steak sammies. We just never did them with smoked brisket. I do think that would put ours over the top. Thanks for the great idea!

Steak subs here are the same. I'm a big fan of the mushrooms and banana peppers myself. One place even coats the bread in garlic butter before melting the cheese. Garlic bread steak sandwich. Nothing wrong with that.

My cheese steak order is always fried onions and mushrooms, mayo, ketchup, and provolone. Bell peppers aren't on the menu around here, BUT pickled hot and sweet peppers are.
Your sammie looks great.

What is this "leftover brisket" you speak of?? Ain't gonna happen around our house. You would be lucky to get "thirds" around here. "Seconds are a given though.

Any way, great looking sammie there Ninja.

Next time your smoking anything, throw on as many peppers as you can. Slice up and freeze. I used smoked peppers all the time in a lot of my stuff including my mustard.

Looks great! Smoked meat makes everything better. Cheese steaks with wiz are awesome. Just don't put mayo and lettuce on it and call it a cheese steak or you will offend the Philadelphians. If you put that stuff on it, then it is a steak sandwich. Philly people are quite picky about their cheese steaks and the believed rules, including me.

When I make'em for the family, I cook onions and bell peppers until they are soft. We put that on with some Provolone and stuff ourselves. Great idea with the brisket, if I ever have leftover brisket, I'll try it.

Ditto, I find this a surprisingly peculiar, and delicious tasting, combination. Most Italian joints in Durham called it "special steak." Look forward to trying it with sliced smoked beef.

Ha, Tubbys puts the lettuce and stuff on top of their steak and cheese but they dont call it a cheesesteak though. Definitely a big difference once you add a salad on top. I never knew they were traditionally only onions.

Grilled subs aren't limited to bbq meat. Ill make up a sandwich out of any leftovers. Roasts,steaks, pulled pork, rib tips, leftover chicken, tuna fish, whatever. I dont really see why one would even make a sandwich and not grill it.

The brisket flat really shines though. The fat from the cap melts throughout making moist and the griddle puts just enough crust on it to boost the flavor. Id say i prefer brisket flat chopped and griddled to sliced.
