Step 1: Mustard

Use your palette knife to spread mustard on both sides of you bun to your liking.

Step 2: Add Pork

Use your hammer claw to apply a layer of pork to your bun, use a level to make sure it has been layered evenly.

Step 3: Add Ham

Nothing can pick up ham better than a good pair of pliers. Go on it layer it on there.

Step 4: Swiss Cheese

Screwdrivers are known for their ability to perfectly stack cheese. Be careful not to over tighten, please refer to your cheese packing for proper torque specifications.

Step 5: Add Pickles

Once the pickles have been applied tighten with an adjustable wrench so they don't fall off. It is very easy to forget this little step but it is very important!

Step 6: Measure Twice Grill Once

Once you are done assembling your sandwich, use a square to make sure you have right angles all around. Once that had been corrected you can place your sandwich on the grill. Make sure your grill is properly clamped to the table to avoid burns or bodily injury.

Step 7: All Done!

Great job, once you can smell it it must be done! Enjoy!

    You should mention to use a food grade oil on your tools. A WD-40 flavored Cuban sandwich ain't worth repeating.

    This is exactly how I make my sandwiches. Although I generally try to use a blowtorch, whenever possible :)
