The Brisket Sandwich: How to Create the Ultimate Comfort Food Experience

What is a Brisket Sandwich?

A brisket sandwich is a classic comfort food that features succulent, slow-cooked brisket nestled between two slices of bread. Brisket is a cut of beef that comes from the lower chest area of the cow, and it's well-suited for slow cooking methods like smoking or braising, which helps to tenderize the meat and imbue it with rich, smoky flavors.

To make the perfect brisket sandwich, it's essential to choose the right cut of brisket. At Meatguy Steakhouse, we source only the highest-quality brisket from trusted suppliers to ensure that our sandwiches are packed with flavor and tenderness.

In addition to the brisket itself, a typical brisket sandwich includes bread, cheese, and various toppings such as onions, pickles, or barbecue sauce. However, there's plenty of room for customization when it comes to making the ultimate brisket sandwich.

Meatguy Steakhouse's Signature Brisket Sandwich

At Meatguy Steakhouse, we take the brisket sandwich to a whole new level with our signature creation, the Smokin' Joe. This sandwich is a true masterpiece, featuring 12 hours of house-smoked brisket that is so tender and flavorful, it practically melts in your mouth.

But that's just the beginning. We also add seared purple cabbage, garlic mashed potatoes, and a savory mushroom in vol au vent, all perfectly seasoned and cooked to perfection. And to top it all off, we serve it with a homemade mustard au jus that has been slow-cooked for 48 hours to infuse every drop with rich, bold flavors.

When you take a bite of our Smokin' Joe, you'll experience a perfect blend of textures and flavors that will leave you craving more. From the juicy brisket to the creamy potatoes and crispy cabbage, every bite is an explosion of taste that is sure to satisfy your cravings for comfort food.

The Perfect Pairings for a Brisket Sandwich

When it comes to pairing side dishes and drinks with a brisket sandwich, there are plenty of options that can enhance the flavors and textures of the meal. Some popular choices include:


The crunch and acidity of coleslaw can balance out the richness of the brisket.

Sweet Potato Fries

The sweetness and earthiness of sweet potato fries can complement the smokiness of the brisket.
