Okay, Binghampton, Ellicott City, Horseheads residents, and other denizens from that area...

What's your favorite spiedie recipe? I usually buy the marinade they sell at Wegman's but would love to try some homemade varieties. I'm having some friends over for Labor Day on they are on the menu so I need to get those pork cubes marinating soon!

I was taught: Buy the mix it yourself powdered Four Seasons Italian salad dressing. You know the little pouches with the dry powder.... make it exactly to directions, except double the oil & double the vinagar. Marinade overnight or longer. We use pork tenderloin, but I know people that do it with any meat.

Many people I know use State Fair Spiedie Sauce. It's made locally in Binghamton. Another of their products is the Pinch line of dry rubs. I like the Italian best, but the Hunter's Pride line is also good.

That's the brand I normally get at Wegman's. I'll have to look for their rub.

It's a kabob, usually made with pork or lamb or chicken, marinated in a vinaigrette for a couple of day.

Pretty much Binghamton thing. But you can find it other places.

I grew up in Tucker, which at the time was a distance northern suburb of Atlanta. It's close to Stone Mountain. :D Today it's considered "close in." From there I went to school in Dahlonega which as everyone knows is in the north central part of the state. :D That really was in the boonies. After school I spent several years in Bayonne, NJ before moving to the DC area but I've never heard of spiedies. We just say we are having "meat on a stick." We are very simple people. :D My parents are still in Morgantown, GA which is about 30 miles from Chattanoga. Lisa

Cool - I was just down that way a couple of weeks ago. It's certainly grown up since I'd been back. I left in '82. Heavens, Dahlonega has its own Walmart and chick filet! Until recently my sister lived in Lawrenceville but has since moved to Gainesville. I miss the "we'll talk to anyone who will talk to us" aspect of the rural south. That doesn't go over well in DC; you'd think I had two heads if I strike up a conversation. That always embarrasses my kids but lol, for that reason alone it’s worth continuing the practice. It's great hearing from someone from the old neighborhood. I hope you had a great weekend and a blessed rest of the year.

speedies are one of my favorite foods. Lupo's speedie's in Endicott on Main st. is great. I Always Use Lupo's original endicott style speedie marinade. It's much tastier than state fair. btw, the triple cities has some of the world's best pizza too. and don't forget Roma's Italian bread.

What a great way to be. It doesn't go over all that well here in Vermont either.

Don't feel bad about not knowing what spiedies are, I had no clue either :D

It's akin to asking for a soda or a grinder in Ohio. If you say a pop and a hogie or submarine you've got the correct lingo.

That was the other one I was trying to remember. I didn't know it was made in Endicott. Learn something new everyday.
