I want to relive that meal with a black note & more brisket! YEAH BUDDY!
Didnt even think of a rye beer. Thats a great option too I bet. never paired one up with bbq yet.
Totally agree. Saying "BBQ" is WAY too broad. Not only are there tons of different foods that can be BBQ'd a variety of ways, they can also have different spice rubs etc! Is BBQ a hot dog, smoked ribs, smoked brisket, or my carne asada tacos? lol!
As for my favorite pairing, I tried this last month and really liked it. I did a filet Mignon from whole foods and a Blue Chimay.
False --- BBQ and grilling are different. BBQ is smoking meat low and slow.
Hot dogs and your carne asada tacos are grilled. Smoked ribs, smoked briskets, etc. (regardless of rub) are BBQ.
Regardless if I lumped in BBQ and grilling, BBQ is STILL too big of a category to *always* enjoy the same beer with. I knew they were different categories, but the average person will consider them the same category, unless you're an avid BBQ and griller.
I can smoke brisket, pork shoulder, a ham, a turkey, etc - most of which will have pretty drastically different flavor profiles before the spice rub; add the spice rub and it is even more of a variety of tastes.
We are agreed --- no single style of beer matches with the diversity of BBQ. Cheers.
Plus.. how do you know I am not slow smoking my carne asada!!
I love brown ales and porters with BBQ. The roasty, nutty flavor of those beers can really pair well with the smoked meat.
It's all about that scotch ale. Very malty, semi sweet, and complex. Compliments all of the best smoked polishes, brisket, and pork.
I always like an IPA or Brown Ale with my BBQ
Hmmm...seem to be in the minority here, but a crisp cold pils does it for me.
I like pale ales with BBQ.
Brown ales compliment the smokiness well. I also like to pair saisons with most foods, tropic king is a great food pairing beer.
a good hoppy pale is my fav.... typically doing ribs, pork tenderloin on the Egg. Any other egg heads on here?
Love a good Porter with BBQ- sweet, roasty, and smoky, but thin and light enough so you don't feel like exploding halfway through the meal. If you want your beverage to accentuate/amplify the typical BBQ flavors, go with this.
If you want something to "wash it down" or cleanse the palate, go with a pils or AAL (especially good if it's hot af out and you've been slaving over a grill for an hour- but I'm sure we all know this already).
