New menu item served on a custom toasted cornbread roll, available for a limited time.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – September 26, 2019 – Firehouse Subs is firing up the fall season with hot flavors featured in its newest menu item, Nashville Hot Brisket, available now for a limited time at all U.S. Firehouse Subs restaurants.* This hearty sub features slow-smoked USDA Choice beef brisket freshly sliced with a kick of spicy Nashville Hot seasoning, spicy pickle chips, mayo, sweet and tangy slaw and melted pepper jack cheese served on a toasted cornbread roll.

Celebrating 25 years of award-winning subs, the Nashville Hot Brisket is the brand’s latest result of a dedicated focus on culinary innovation.

“I truly enjoyed creating this flavorful and unique sub, inspired by the cult-favorite Nashville Hot Chicken, but with a bold Firehouse Subs spin that showcases our high-quality beef brisket,” said Firehouse Subs Director of Product Development Jay Miller. “The Nashville Hot Brisket will surely be a hit with guests this fall by delivering the crave-able flavors and large portions our brand is known for.” 

Depending on your desired heat index, guests can expect a medium hot spice level with the Nashville Hot Brisket, and for an added kick, guests can visit the complimentary hot sauce bar, offering an assortment of 25+ complimentary hot sauces, including Captain Sorensen’s® Datil Pepper Hot Sauce, named in honor of the founding brothers’ father, Rob Sorensen, a 43-year retired fire captain.

To order the new Nashville Hot Brisket, visit or download the Firehouse Subs app to have it hot and ready for pickup at the Rapid Rescue To Go® station inside at your nearest Firehouse Subs location.
