"A Rhode Island exclusive. Kind of like a Sloppy Joe but far superior. Spicy enough to earn it's name, it's best washed down with a good beer. For you non Rhodey people, torpedo rolls are just the long sandwich rolls."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

I am from little Rhody. And this is a recipe that brings me back to my childhood. I remember carnivals they always had the dynamite stands. They go quick and now it is a family favorite. You can make them as mild or as spicy as you like according to your taste buds. My grandmom gave me this recipe along time ago and I lost it in a move. I was craving for some dynamites and so I looked it up knowing I would find the recipe on this website. Thank you for posting this recipe. It brings back some fond memories.
I want to rate this recipe higher, because dynamites are so freakin awesome. But unfortunately this recipe is a start but as-is does not make a great batch of dynamites. Here are the changes you need:
After browning your meat add a large red bell pepper (not one strip) and 2 large green bell peppers, seeded and cut into STRIPS. Add two large onions (not medium) also cut into strips. Add 4 cloves of garlic, and 4 large ribs of celery, chopped. Cook until vegetables are tender. Drain the grease and add a tablespoon of dried oregano, 1 to 2 tablespoons (not teaspoons) of red pepper flake, and salt and pepper along with the rest mentioned in the recipe to the crock pot. The secret ingredient is 4 to 6 ounces of yellow cheddar.
Unfortunately one batch of dynamites will never replicate the taste of church bazaar dynamites, where all the members of the ladies auxiliary make a batch of their recipe and 20 batches are mixed together in a huge pot and dished out to lucky patrons. Mmmm.
This is as good a recipe for dynamite as I've seen. I double the amount of onions and peppers and add a large can of chopped tomatoes. Just my preference. I like the veggies cut into 1" pieces for a chunkier sandwich. After browning the meat, I put everything into a crock pot and cook on high until very tender. At the end, taste for heat and adjust (slowly) with Red Hot Sauce! Make a pot full and watch it get devoured during halftime! Thanks!
For more flavor I added about 4 cups of chopped celery (at least 1/2 inch chunks),one can of tomato paste with equal parts water, one 15 ounce can tomato sauce and large can of whole tomatoes. My mother-in-law makes this and usually serves it on hot dog or hamburger rolls. I've even served it on top of pasta...yummy. Thanks
I'm from R.I. now in texas and My daughter makes this and everyone loves them.Making a pot right now They are the best,and deserve the name DYNAMITES ! ! !
i follow driections and my family loved it.will be making again i like to add hot sauce seperately
I can't believe I made this! I was stupid enough to make something that had only two reviews. My DH and 3 teen sons poured BBQ sauce on to try to give it some flavor. Sorry to be so negative but please make ANYTHING besides this!
Great for parties. The longer it cooks the better it is.
I add fresh Parsley, basil also. Childhood staple in my home growing up.
