Red Wine and BBQ [moved from Austin board]

Luxint | Aug 22, 2011 07:29 AM

Is it just me, or does anyone else enjoy a Merlot and BBQ?

I know, I know I'm at risk of being called not really Texan. But I assure you folks I was born and breed right here in the Beer and BBQ Nation. As a matter of fact, my father cooked all of my life with him on the BBQ cook off circuit. So I know my Q. But lately I've been spending lots of time in Italy and my wine taste is growing. Breaking all Lone Star Nation rules I started started mixing the vino and the beef. And to my pleasure they match well. A great slice of brisket and a nice merlot are perfect for each other.
Am I alone here, Should I turn in my boots and tongs?
