Summer is winding down, but that doesn’t mean it’s too late to get your hands on some amazing BBQ pulled pork – thanks to Wendy’s that is. And this won’t have you sitting in front of a smoker for hours either! They’re introducing their new BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwich and BBQ Pulled Pork Cheese Fries, but only for a limited time! This isn’t your run-of-the-mill fast food pulled pork either, folks. Wendy’s took it to the next level by consulting real pit masters from across the country to develop a BBQ that’s real and authentic. From the cut of meat to the way they apply the sauce, each pit master left his or her mark on the end product. What do you think makes great BBQ? The type of smoke, the cut of meat, a great rub, the right sauce? All of the above above?
Wendy’s BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwich is made of tender, premium pork shoulder, slow-smoked for hours with hickory wood – the way real pit masters do it. The succulent shredded meat is topped with your choice of a custom-crafted BBQ sauce – sweet, smoky or spicy – and served with cool, crunchy coleslaw on a toasted brioche bun. How awesome is it that you get to pick your own sauce!?! I mean… seriously! Wendy’s went to great lengths to create their custom-crafted sauces and they realized that not everyone likes their sauce the same way – which I just love. It took years of watching real pit masters work to create the perfect sauces. Whether you like it spicy, sweet, or smoky, Wendy has you covered in the sauce department. I wonder if they’ll let me have all 3 sauces??
Once they perfected their recipe, they put that amazing BBQ on their new BBQ Pulled Pork Cheese Fries – which I’m really excited about! BBQ. Pulled. Pork. Cheese. Fries. Go ahead, wipe the drool from your chin. I’ll wait… Using their already awesome natural-cut fries as a base, they topped them with rich cheddar cheese sauce, hickory-smoked pulled pork, diced red onions and – like its brother sandwich – topped them with a choice of three sauces, perfect for a savory side or snack. I bet I could make a whole meal off of those fries alone!
