Brisket Po Boy Sandwiches are a great way to enjoy leftover smoked brisket. Soft French bread rolls topped with bbq brisket, coleslaw and ripe juicy tomatoes for an ultimate sandwich that will satisfy a hungry family.
Leftover smoked brisket is one of the best things to have on hand for getting dinner on the table in a hurry. We often enjoy leftover brisket tacos, brisket taquitos and even brisket mac and cheese but most often we add a little homemade bbq sauce and make sandwiches.
Po Boy sandwiches are a Louisiana classic. They are typically made with thin sliced meat or seafood and topped with lettuce and tomato. We love shrimp po boys and we've made them with catfish too but I have to say the brisket po boy is definitely my favorite!

How to Make Brisket Po Boys:
- Slice or shred brisket.
- Place meat in a skillet with homemade bbq sauce.
- Place over medium heat and cook, stirring often until heated through, about 8 -10 minutes.
- Slice French rolls in half lengthwise, not cutting all the way through, to be able to fill the sandwiches.
- Fill with bbq brisket, coleslaw and sliced tomatoes.
- Drizzle with additional bbq sauce if desired.
Smoked brisket is plenty flavorful on it's own and we don't always use barbecue sauce but a Memphis style bbq sandwich, topped with creamy coleslaw is just hard to top.
If you aren't into smoking your own brisket, pick some up from your favorite bbq and get a few extra pounds to enjoy throughout the week. These sandwiches are going to be your new favorite for bbq night.
