Do you know what a torpedo/dynamite is?

Been looking for info on torpedo recipe. Brushing up on family recipes. I grew up in R.I. of Portuguese heritage.
My dad made this for us regularly. Basically same meat/peppers/garlic/onions etc. Used tomato paste not sauce then
simmer 4 ever in a pot. Served in torpedo rolls. Delicious.
Torpedo sauce is familiar in West Warwick, Providence, East Providence areas. Mostly through Portuguese families. I have not heard of "dynomite" @ all.
If you find any interesting Torp. Sauce recipes in your search please let me know. Good luck in you research.
