I love Arby's and find myself stopping by for a quick snack and sandwich fairly often. So when I saw the commercials showing the new Smokehouse Brisket sandwich, I was all over it. It looked incredible and had all the elements I like in a sandwich; good meat, soft bread, cheese, barbecue sauce and onion rings.
Only this isn't your typical sandwich... I think it's so much more. This is a delicious sandwich that starts with quality meat and is smoked low and slow for at least 13 hours and boy it sure tastes like it. We have a smoker at home and you can tell smoked meat vs. meat soaked with liquid smoke. This was for sure smoked for a long time and I love the flavor and aroma that I experienced. And the meat was flavorful and tender. No gristly fat on this sandwich! No way! The smoked gouda cheese adds an extra unique flavor to this sandwich and the barbecue sauce and mayo added was just enough that it did not leave the bread all soggy. I was also pleasantly surprised that the bun wasn't your typical sesame seed or plain bun you find these days but a soft bakery style bun that was delicious and didn't take away from the smoky sandwich flavor. Pair this with one of my Arby's favorites, curly fries, and I had a delicious and satisfying lunch on a chilly rainy day.
Can I also just say how much I love Arby's spokesman Bo Dietl? He's a "real" guy and not some flashy model and that is refreshing to see these days. I just had to throw that out there.
Is your mouth watering yet? Find an Arby’s near you and grab your own brisket sandwich. It's available as a single sandwich or you can have it in a combo with those yummy curly fries and a drink.
