The Clubfoot Sandwich is a Mug of Sandwich

The Clubfoot sandwich is an ingenious approach to sandwich design. I don't know who invented it, but the Clubfoot is trademarked by The Saggering Ox, a restaurant chain in the American northwest with most locations in Montana.

The chefs bake loaves in whole tin cans, then hollow out the centers. They then fill the cavities with different ingredients. Beyond that, the preparation process is mysterious. Staggering Ox employees have to sign non-disclosure agreements in order to prevent details from becoming widely known.

The ingredients added to the Clubfeet, however, are public knowledge. The Nuke is composed of ham, turkey and roast beef as well as cheddar, Swiss and provolone cheeses. The Saint Helens erupts with 5 different meats and 5 different cheeses.

I'd love to eat a Reuben sandwich made this way.

I have been looking at cans closer since posting that though, and see some that looked welded. I would still be surprised if any companies would bother with lead-free solder. Leaded solder would seem kind of difficult to use legally, considering how hard it is to use these days in things not even intended for contact with food.

Solderless cans have been in commercial use for over a hundred years now and the only type of can I'm familiar with using solder later than that was milk cans with a solder plug into something like the 50s. Cans are mostly closed by crimping these days, although maybe things are different in some parts of the world still.
