Traeger's Smoky Meatball Subs

Posted by Mary M. on May 20, 2013

Traeger's Smoky Meatball Subs

The submarine sandwich is known by many names: hoagie, sub, hero, grinder, foot-long - just to name a few. But we at Traeger know it by just one name: smoky sub sandwich perfection. (One really long name.) How do you improve on perfection? Add grilled meatballs, sweet marinara sauce and melted cheese. We're talkin' about the ultimate level of enlightenment, here.


Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 40 minutes
Serves: 4
Recommended Pellets: Hickory, Oak

1-1/2 pounds ground beef
1 large egg
1/3 cup milk or buttermilk
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1/2 cup dry seasoned bread crumbs or crushed croutons
1 tablespoon Traeger Cajun Rub or your favorite rub
1/4 cup onion, finely minced
2 cloves garlic, finely minced
1-1/2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper
Jarred marinara sauce
4 6-inch sub rolls, or baguettes, cut through the sides
Thinly sliced or grated provolone cheese

In small mixing bowl using a fork or whisk, beat the egg. Whisk in the milk and Worcestershire sauce. Stir in the bread crumbs and Traeger Cajun Rub and let the mixture sit for 5 minutes.

In another bowl, combine the ground beef, onion, garlic, and black pepper.

Add the egg mixture to the meat mixture and combine well. (Your hands are the best tools for this.) If the mixture seems dry, add a bit more milk. If wet, add a few dry breadcrumbs. Roll the mixture into balls about the size of golf balls.

When ready to cook, start the Traeger grill on Smoke with the lid open until the fire is established (4 to 5 minutes). Set the temperature to 325 degrees F and preheat, lid closed, for 10 to 15 minutes.

Arrange the meatballs directly on the grill grate.

Bake for 30 - 35 minutes, or until the meatballs are cooked through. Leave the Traeger on.

These meatballs are seriously so good that you could just eat them as is. They'll like meatball bonbons. I'm sorely tempted to carry some around in my pocket to use as bite-sized midday snacks. (Who needs protein shakes?!)

In the meantime, heat the jarred marinara in a pan on the stovetop. Transfer the cooked meatballs to the pan and let them simmer for 5 to 10 minutes.

Tear off four sheets of aluminum foil and lay them on your work surface. Put a hoagie roll in the center of each. Divide the meatballs among the rolls. Top the meatballs with provolone cheese. Wrap the sandwiches tightly in the foil and return to the grill to heat, 10 to 12 minutes.

Grab some lemonade and serve these subs while they're still warm and extra messy!

If you're not eating immediately or feeding a large crowd, you can turn your oven to 350 degrees F and let it preheat for about 5 minutes, then turn it off. Just throw the warm subs in there until you're ready to chow down.
