Yesterday we provided you with some suggestions regarding wines to pair with BBQ. The question was left intentionally vague, and the response that we received from our contributing wine writers were correspondingly all over the map. Today i just wanted to add my two cents worth, though with a little bit more of a focus.
I’m going to offer suggestions regarding my favorite types of wines served with the types of food that comes off of my grill. Notice I changed the questions a bit. While I do slow smoke some mean BBQ, most of what i do, and most of us do for that matter, particularly starting right about now, would be defined as grilling and has little to do with BBQ. So next time you fire up the grill and plan on dishing out some grilled shrimp, chicken, or yes even slow smoked memphis style ribs consider these wine pairing suggestions.
