After a successful test run last year, the Mexican-inspired restaurant is officially adding smoked brisket to its menus nationwide, according to CNN.

Chipotle revealed the brisket is a limited-time offering and will be available nationwide on September 23. If you’re a member of the chain’s rewards program, you can get it now if you order it through the website or on the Chipotle app.

The chain described the brisket as “smoked to perfect tenderness.” It will be seasoned with spices and a Mexican pepper sauce while also topped with a brand new sauce made with smoked chili peppers for an extra kick.

“This isn’t your standard brisket experience,” Chris Brandt, Chief Marketing Officer, said in a media statement, per Today. “We’ve created a differentiated Smoked Brisket recipe that is authentic to our menu and pairs flawlessly with our real ingredients.”

This is the latest new offer from Chipotle.

In March, the restaurant revealed a Hand-Crafted Quesadilla as its first customizable, digital-only menu item.

The hand-crafted quesadilla is available on the digital-only menu, not in restaurants. Chipotle confirmed that this item had been one of the most popular foods on the chain's social media.

The quesadilla is also the first customizable item Chipotle added since the chain introduced the salad option 17 years ago.

“We’re so excited to answer the call from fans and introduce one of the most highly anticipated menu items in our brand’s history,” the compay said in a release. “The Hand-Crafted Quesadilla brings so many new possibilities to our menu, and fans will love exploring fresh flavor combinations through its sides and salsa options.”
