Wendy’s is bringing barbecue to a national audience with its three new BBQ Pulled Pork offerings: BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwich, BBQ Pulled Pork Cheeseburger, and BBQ Pulled Pork Cheese Fries. 

Wendy’s new BBQ Pulled Pork offerings feature hickory-smoked pulled pork that’s shredded—not chopped. Wendy’s also took a cue from local barbecue spots, offering fans a choice of three sauces—sweet, smoky, or spicy—to fit consumers’ personal barbecue style.

“We’re known for our menu innovation, and our new BBQ Pulled Pork offerings deliver on the taste, quality, and customization our customers have come to expect,” says Brandon Solano, senior vice president, marketing. “We’re giving customers the barbecue choices and flavors they deserve with the convenience of their local Wendy’s.”

Wendy’s three original BBQ Pulled Pork offerings, available until early November, include flavors and ingredients that go beyond typical quick-service barbecue condiments of pickles and onions.

The BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwich features hickory-smoked pulled pork and slaw made in Wendy’s kitchens every morning, topped with the customer’s choice of three barbecue sauces—sweet, smoky, or spicy—all served on a toasted brioche bun.

The BBQ Pulled Pork Cheeseburger starts with a beef hamburger patty, topped with hickory-smoked pulled pork, a slice of Cheddar cheese, slaw, and one of three barbecue sauces, all stacked on a toasted brioche bun.      

The BBQ Pulled Pork Cheese Fries use Wendy’s Natural-Cut Fries as a foundation for Cheddar cheese sauce, hickory-smoked pulled pork, diced red onions, and a choice of Wendy’s three custom-crafted sauces on top.
