"We collaborated with some of the most talented pit masters in the country to create a one-of-a-kind taste experience that features the unmistakable flavor that comes from using real smoke and freshly baked bread. It's a combination that simply can't be beat."

Subway expected a good amount of skepticism, which is why they put their new sandwich to the test in Austin, Texas, a city known for its pit-smoking.
In Austin, Subway disguised themselves as the mysterious pop-up restaurant Monty's Smokehouse, where the served their new creation to 100 locals and self-proclaimed barbecue connoisseurs. You can imagine their surprise when it was revealed that Monty's Pit-smoked brisket, which gained the approval of their veteran taste buds, was created by Subway.
