- BBQ Ribs or Steak with a Good Tomato based BBQ Sauce
- Red Zinfandel is a great go-to wine, stick to the fruitier styles.
- Syrah is my favorite, especially for any smokey BBQ. Again the fruiter styles will pair best.
- A Big Oaky Chardonnay. A big Chardonnay can pair well with a piece of meat simply grilled, but the BBQ sauce and the potential for both sweetness and spice will not make for a happy coupling.
