As a 43 year old native of Des Moines and pretty much raised on Grinders I have to say Graziano's Sausage is what makes the sandwich. Their seasoning plays a big part in the taste of the sandwich. Without it, it will not be the same regardless of how it is prepared or seasoned.


I will not go an Iowa State Fair without a Gizmo. I actually just had a pizza from a local joint that was a Grinder pizza, based off of the Gizmo. It's only available in August though, so I had to find the recipe to make it myself. I can't wait to try this! Thank you!
