Very popular at public barbeques such as charity fund-raisers, fun runs or other open to the public sporting events.

Making the snag sanger: line up at the trestle table, accept your one or two slices of white bread, shuffle along the queue and accept a red hot sausage plonked onto your bread direct from the barbie, answer "yep" or "no thanks" to onions, shuffle along to the next spot and answer "tomato" or "barbeque thanks" to the question of "what sauce?". Your snag sanger is now complete. Eat standing up and leaning forward slightly to avoid damage to clothes.
