At Arby’s, their latest slogan is “We have the meats”. The impressive list of meats has reached nine with new smoked turkey breast which is featured in the new Smokehouse Turkey Sandwich.  Let’s review.Smokehouse Turkey 1Arby’s describes their new Smokehouse Turkey Sandwich like this:

Our smoked turkey isn’t “smoke flavored.” It’s smoke infused. We smoke it for eight hours over mesquite wood in a smokehouse in Texas. Then we put it on an artisan style roll and top it with smoked cheddar, crispy onions and white BBQ sauce to make our Smokehouse Turkey sandwich.
