  1. How many hoagies does this recipe yield? Thanks

    1. The finish product yield was around 3 lbs. The amount of meat you put on each hoagie will depend on how many.

      1/4 lb - 12 hoagies
      1/3 lb - 9 hoagies
      1/2 lb - hoagies

  2. Have 2 friends coming over for pre-season football game, so maybe I'll get a 3lb and go from there. Can't wait to put it on the Primo. Thanks again

    1. That sounds like a perfect finished about for 3-4 people! Hope you all enjoy! Please let me know how you like it!

  3. Thanks Dominic! Please let me know how you like it!

  4. Any hints on where to get a grill safe pan like the one you used?
