After a few weeks of rumors, Subway officially announced the existence of the Pit-Smoked Brisket sandwich, in stores now.
Subway teamed up with a pit-master with decades of experience for the sandwich and even gave customers a blind taste test of the product before its launch, with many being shocked that the sandwich came from Subway and not a BBQ joint.
The hot sandwich comes on an Italian roll and is topped with cheddar cheese and barbecue sauce. Though it’s gotten a red-carpet roll-out, this sammie is only available for a limited time starting September 5, so hop to it!
Subway has been totally innovating the sandwich game lately, if you haven’t noticed. After all, these are the geniuses who made sandwiches out of garlic bread. But the chain’s rumored new project is a fresh take on two old classics: brisket and SLIDERS.
The Fast Food Post first reported that Subway would soon be launching a Pit-Smoked Brisket Sandwich along with these slider sandwiches. The brisket will apparently be smoked for 13 hours and smothered in barbecue sauce and cheese…the way it should be. This sandwich will be available in six-inch and 12-inch sizes so you can take your pick.
Though the brisket hasn’t been launched—or even announced—nationwide (Delish reached out for comment to confirm this information but did not immediately hear back), it has been spotted a few different places, and YouTuber Timothy Birmingham tried it for himself, so it is out there, somewhere. It’s also worth noting that Subway offered a similar brisket sandwich in 2012, so they clearly know what they’re doing.
Also rumored to be coming are sliders that honestly sound adorable. The sliders are $1.79 each and come in Little Cheesesteak (with steak, American cheese and veggies), Italian Spice, (pepperoni, salami, American cheese, and vinaigrette) Little Turkey (with turkey, pepper Jack cheese, spinach, and mayonnaise) and Ham & Jack (which is what it sounds like!).
Like the brisket, these have also been spotted in various locations and even on some commercials, so keep an eye out at your local Subway to see if you’re lucky enough to try them before an official nationwide launch. We’ll update this post when we hear back from Subway.
