Participating restaurants will offer the new protein for a limited time
Newport Beach, CA (RestaurantNews.com) Chipotle Mexican Grill (NYSE: CMG) today announced Smoked Brisket will be available at U.S. and Canada restaurants for a limited time. Made with Responsibly Raised® beef, the new protein is smoked to perfect tenderness, charred on the grill, and seasoned with Mexican spices, including fire-roasted jalapenos and chipotle chili peppers. The protein is hand-chopped and finished with a new Brisket sauce made with smoky chili peppers.
Brisket: The Chipotle Way
Brisket has been consistently among the top requested menu items by Chipotle guests. Over the past two years, Chipotle’s culinary team has been challenged to develop a reimagined brisket recipe that is uniquely Chipotle. The result is a tender, Mexican-inspired Smoked Brisket that introduces entirely new flavor profiles to every Chipotle bowl, burrito, quesadilla and taco.
“This isn’t your standard brisket experience,” said Chris Brandt, Chief Marketing Officer. “We’ve created a differentiated Smoked Brisket recipe that is authentic to our menu and pairs flawlessly with our real ingredients.”
How To Get It
Today and tomorrow, Chipotle’s more than 24 million Rewards members in the U.S. will have exclusive access to Smoked Brisket on the Chipotle app and Chipotle.com.
Beginning September 23, Smoked Brisket will be available in-restaurant at U.S. and Canada locations and on the Chipotle app, Chipotle.com, and Chipotle.ca. The new menu item will be available on third-party delivery apps starting on September 27.
$0 Delivery Fee
To celebrate the launch of Smoked Brisket, Chipotle is offering a $0 delivery fee on all Smoked Brisket orders via the Chipotle app, Chipotle.com, and Chipotle.ca from September 27 through October 3.
Continued Menu Innovation
In the fall of 2020, Chipotle tested Smoked Brisket in Cincinnati, Ohio and Sacramento, California. The brand leveraged its stage-gate process to test and learn from customer feedback and iterate before deciding on a national launch strategy. Brisket marks the third new menu item that Chipotle has introduced on a national scale in 2021. Previously, Chipotle launched Cilantro-Lime Cauliflower Rice for a limited time in January and debuted the Hand-Crafted Quesadilla, the brand’s first new customizable entrée in 17 years, in March.
