New King’s Hawaiian BBQ Brisket Sandwich from Arby’s

Last year Arby’s released their Smokehouse Brisket Sandwich (review) and now it’s back and there’s a new version coming September 28th… the King’s Hawaiian BBQ Brisket Sandwich.  Some locations have the new sandwich already, including my local Arby’s with a price tag of $5.49.  I’m guessing this will be pretty good since the King’s Hawaiian Roast Beef BLT was great as was the King’s Hawaiian Roast Beef & Swiss.

Arby’s NEW King’s Hawaiian BBQ Brisket Sandwich. 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.

Review: BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwich from Wendy’s

Today is the last day of summer so let’s go out with some summer-y grub to help break up the onslaught of pumpkin we’re in the middle of (just realized I did something similar to this last year).  It seems like the BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwich from Wendy’s should’ve been available a lot earlier in my area, but better late than never. Wendy's BBQ Pulled Pork SandwichWendy’s describes their BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwich like this:

Barbeque has a new home! Introducing Wendy’s BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwich. Tender slow-cooked pulled pork, topped with crunchy slaw and your choice of three barbeque sauces – sweet, smoky or spicy. All served on a toasted brioche bun. Experience your right to new hickory-smoked BBQ Pulled Pork at Wendy’s for a limited time.

Back in April we brought you a first look at this sandwich when it was in test markets.  I’ve always been a little iffy about pulled pork at fast food places for whatever reason, but in my experiences, the quality at Wendy’s has usually been pretty solid. … continue reading “Review: BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwich from Wendy’s”
