What is it about BBQ food that seems to put a smile on
our faces? Love love love to BBQ. Summer, fall, winter or
spring. It just doesn’t matter. It also seems to bring the
caveman out in the guys. Big hunks of meat, fowl, fish,
pork, ribs. You can almost hear them do their ‘Tim the
Tool Man Taylor’ grunt. (Born in the early to mid ‘90s?
Google it for a laugh).
Beef. Tons of options. Zinfandel is a great choice. The
fruitier styles go great with ribs and the fabulous sauces
used for basting. The ones with more oomph are great
with a roast with a nice flavourful rub or maybe even just
a Striploin right over the coals with nothing but a little
pepper and a wee bit of salt.
Pork (including ham). Okay, so if you have never BBQ’d a
hamsteak you really must try it. Yum. A Gewürztraminer
or a lovely dry Rosé. Pork chops, Pork tenderloin… you
don’t need to go white wine with white meat. Remember
that it is what you are putting on or in it is what counts.
Chicken. How about chicken tenders done with a tomato
sauce? A Chianti Classico would be awesome!
Let’s not forget about fish. Try a Chilean or Californian
Chardonnay with some smoked salmon. If you really want
to have fun, try a Manzanilla Sherry with some Halibut or
Sole (It isn’t your grandmother’s sherry).
