This updated club sandwich is dressed up with a lively spice rub and matching Special Sauce. The toasted bun can be topped off with a prepared pesto sauce and some crumbled feta if desired. For a recipe short-cut, substitute some of your favourite smokey barbecue sauce instead of making the spice rub.
