This is a camping variation of the American Ruben sandwich which has corned beef and sauerkraut. Our version is grilled over the open fire before being eaten.

Using the classic combination of corned beef, Swiss cheese, sauerkraut, and Russian dressing on rye bread, ingredients can be substituted with what you have available. Or try other known variations such as the Montreal Ruben using smoked meat for the corned beef; Lobster Reuben, or Rachel sandwich that substitutes the corned beef for pastrami and sauerkraut for coleslaw.

By carefully managing the heat of the BBQ you can create a perfectly grilled sandwich as good as or better than what you would buy in a shop.
