Review: King’s Hawaiian BBQ Brisket Sandwich from Arby’s

When Arby’s released their Smokehouse Brisket Sandwich last year, I praised in most areas and shamed in a few others.  Overall I felt the sandwich was good and had a lot of potential to be an amazing fast food BBQ sandwich.  The new King’s Hawaiian BBQ Brisket Sandwich at Arby’s should please those looking for a stripped down version of the original. Arby's Kings Hawaiian BBQ BrisketArby’s describes their King’s Hawaiian BBQ Brisket Sandwich like this:

Sweet and savory. Fluffy and smoky. We combined the best sweet buns in Hawaii with our Texas-smoked brisket to create a sandwich that makes both states proud. Send your mouth a souvenir from Hawaii and Texas without ever leaving Arby’s.

The King’s Hawaiian BBQ Brisket Sandwich has fewer ingredients than the Smokehouse version.  I’m sure a lot of you will be happy (including myself) to know there’s no mayo this time around.  There’s also no crispy fried onions of smoked Gouda cheese with this one. … continue reading “Review: King’s Hawaiian BBQ Brisket Sandwich from Arby’s”
