One of the most important reasons for my excitement to move back down to Texas revolved around one of my all-time favorite things….food! Texas is known for the classic tex-mex dishes, juicy, perfectly cooked steaks, and of course, BBQ! BBQ has always been my first love. BBQ brisket, BBQ pork, BBQ turkey, BBQ chicken, you name it! BBQ is defined by tender, juicy, fall-off-the-bone, perfectly seasoned meat that will thrill your taste buds and delight your belly! There’s something about sitting down and enjoying a hearty, perfectly prepared BBQ meal complete with sides and another favorite, sweet tea! My husband has dabbled in smoked meats, and I’ve had a chance to visit many BBQ restaurants, but am most excited about what I’ve just heard regarding Wendy’s BBQ offerings! Inspired by the BBQ Belt, and all of the different restaurants and classic BBQ joints across the country, Wendy’s has taken its offering to a whole new level!
Wendy’s (the Wendy’s Website) now offers, in many of it’s restaurants across the country, a unique BBQ experience. It all started a year ago, when Wendy’s traveled around the country to experience all of the different regional varieties and tastes of BBQ in all different locations and venues. Taking that inspiration back to the restaurant, Wendy’s has created three unique sauce experiences: smoky, spicy, and sweet. These flavors were created to allow each BBQ connoisseur to enjoy their own flavor and personal style. Each sauce is crafted to bring out the flavor of the meat in addition to adding a smokiness (my personal favorite), spice, or hint of sweetness.
Wendy’s prepares, for a limited time, BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwiches and Pulled Pork Cheese Fries, by starting with tender, premium, lean pork shoulder. They slow smoke it for hours using real hickory chips, then shred the pork and top it with your sauce of choice. The best part is the way Wendy’s respects the craft of BBQ by drizzling the sauce on the meat and on the bun, perfect every time.
Imagine enjoying one of these delicious BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwiches along with crunchy, cool coleslaw on a toasted brioche bun. Or better yet, enjoy as a side or snack, a plate of natural-cut French fries with a topping of rich cheddar cheese, hickory-smoked pulled pork and diced red onions, topped of course by your choice of BBQ sauce. Take your family for a great, fulfilling family dinner or sneak out for one of the best lunches you’ve had in a while, and get some of this delicious BBQ while you can! Wendy’s promises it’s for a limited amount of time, so don’t miss your opportunity to sample what real, BBQ Belt inspired pulled pork tastes like before it’s gone! Don’t forget, with your choice of BBQ sauce, you can make the experience uniquely yours!
