Regional Barbecue Guide
Adding some regional flair to your favorite grilled meats doesn't turn them into barbecue, but it's close!
Texas Dry Rub
While Memphis is famed for it’s ribs, barbecue in Texas is more beef based, with plenty of brisket and beef ribs. The style of preparation is similar, though in texas the dry rubs tend to be spicier with more of a south of the border influence seen in the extensive use of chilies and chili powder. This added kick of heat along with the richer flavors of beef make for a more intense finished product, which in turns calls for a more intense wine pairing. Something powerful and peppery is an ideal match, look to Australia and one of their great Shiraz for a winning combination.
