Best Wine, Beer & Liquor Pairings

Best Wine, Beer & Liquor Pairings

It wouldn't be an All American Grilling celebration without some ice-cold beer, wine or cocktails to refresh your spirits and compliment your grilled goods. When pairing liquor, beer or wine with grilled goods it is important to know what contrasting flavors compliment each other.

Seafood Kabobs or Fish Tacos:

  • Cocktail- A classic margarita in your favorite flavor is the best cocktail compliment for all things seafood! Try adding fresh lime wedges in your drinks as well because they give your seafood that extra hint of citrus that will put your meal over the top.
  • Wine- White wines in fruity flavors such as apple, pear or pineapple pair extremely well with a variety of seafood dishes! Try one today to complete your meal.
  • Beer- The perfect beer compliment to all things seafood is a brew with light citrus tones or a squeeze of lemon. These beers bring out the saltiness and natural sweetness of the meal while cleansing the palate!

Rib Eye Steaks:

  • Cocktail- For a big and bold flavor that will accompany the strong flavor from a rib eye try a Manhattan! This deliciously refreshing drink will compliment the strong and smoky taste of the rib eye.
  • Wine- Try a cabernet to compliment this tasty meal. The tannins in this wine help to cut through the fat and juices from the steak thus making a delectable combination!
  • Beer- We recommend your favorite red ale variety to compliment this meal. The flavor from this beverage will help to lighten the richness of the cut of meat. It will soften the intensity of the beer and is sure to leave your rib eye even juicer than it was when it was first removed from the grill.

Hot Dogs & Sausages:

  • Wine- If your hot dog toppings or sausage have a hint of spice try a lighter wine with a fruity flavor such as peach or nectarine. Add the wine to a glass of ice, lemonade and top with club soda and you've just found your new summer drink!
  • Beer- The best beer for hot dogs and spicy sausages is a hoppy wheat ale. This brew pairs well with hot dog toppings and seasoned sausages. Try a lemony favored brew for an extra kick!

Marinated Chicken:

  • Cocktail- Depending on the seasoning you'll want to try a drink that won't overpower the flavor of this yummy meal or and assumed vegetables etc. that will accompany it. Try your favorite mojito recipes or anything with a lime!
  • Wine- Chardonnay pairs well with chicken that is white meat. While pinot noir or zinfandel goes great with darker meats.
  • Beer- At times chicken can be somewhat greasy, so try a hoppy beer to clean your palate and add a little carbonation to the meal.

No matter your grilling style or whether you enjoy crafts, light beers, Moscato, red wines or any liquor you can imagine - Coborn's Liquor is the place to head to when you need a delicious and refreshing beverage to accompany your grilling party!

How to Grill a Salmon Kabob

How to Prepare a Salmon Kabob

 

Grilling Tips

Direct Heat is used for foods that take about 30 minutes or less, such as steaks, hamburgers, kabobs, boneless chicken breasts, fish hot dogs and vegetables. The food is cooked directly over an even heat source. The food is turned halfway through cooking time. Cover or uncover the grill while cooking according to recipe directions.

For a charcoal grill, spread out the preheated coals in an even layer.

For a gas grill, preheat the grill with all the burners on high. Place food on cooking grate, then adjust temperature to the one recommended in the recipe.


Indirect Heat is used for foods that take longer than 30 minutes to cook, or are high in fat or are usually cooked in the oven rather than on the stovetop, such as roasts, ribs, thick steaks, whole chickens and bone-in chicken pieces. Foods cooked with the indirect t method do not need to be turned.

For a charcoal grill, bank half of the coals on one side of the grill and the other half on the other side. Place a foil drip pan in the center of the grill, replacing the cooking grate and place the meat over the drip pan. Cover and grill according to recipe directions. Every 45 minutes of grilling, you should add more briquettes to the bank of coals.

For a gas grill, preheat the grill with all the burners on high. Turn the center burner off and place a drip pan in the center. Place food on cooking grate over the drip pan. Adjust temperature to the one recommended in the recipe, then cover an d grill for the recommended time. If the gas grill has only two burners, turn one burner off and place the drip pan on that side.


Hot and Fast: For thin cuts of meat and smaller items like kabobs, steaks, chops, burgers, and dogs you want to turn up the heat and go quickly.

This means you need to keep a close eye on the grill, and more importantly, the food. So how hot is hot?

The Rule is to (carefully) hold your hand just above the cooking grate and start counting seconds.

  • 5 Seconds - Low
  • 4 Seconds - Medium
  • 3 Seconds - Medium High
  • 2 Seconds - High
  • 1 Second – Crazy

Control the Heat: Hot and fast isn't the way to go for everything. fish, chicken,vegetables, and fruit are better grilled at lower temperatures. Aim for medium heat with these foods. For a gas grill this means turning down the knobs, for charcoal it means going smaller when you build a fire. You still need to watch these foods closely, but they are generally going to take longer to cook because of the lower temperature.

  • Rule 1: Always keep your grill grate clean to prevent sticking.
  • Rule 2: Oil the food, not the grill. Oil burns away at high temperatures so it is pointless to oil the cooking grate.
  • Rule 3: Always keep an eye on what you’re grilling.
  • Rule 4: Do not use spray bottles of water to control flare-ups. Flare-ups are caused by too much fat and too much heat.
  • Rule 5: Do not add sugary sauces or marinades to meat on the grill. This causes burning.
  • Rule 6: Spice up your food a good hour before you grill. This lets the flavor sink in.
  • Rule 7: Have the proper grill tools to do the job.
  • Rule 8: Place grilled food on a clean plate.

Get Your Grill On!

If you’re using a charcoal grill, empty the ashes from your last grilling session.

  • Both types of grills need to be pre-heated before you start cooking. Gas grills turn on easily (make sure the lid is open while you’re lighting the grill!). Let the gas grill heat up for at least 10 minutes and your charcoal grill for at least 20.
  • After your grill is preheated, use a brass-wire brush to scrape the charred goo and gunk off of the grate. You’ll need to give it a good scrape at the beginning of grilling season. Then, during grilling season, a quick brush before and after grilling should do.
  • Now that your grill is hot and the grate is clean, your food won’t stick to it as much, and you’re likely to get those classic grill lines!
  • To avoid losing juices during turning, always flip your meat or vegetables using tongs or a spatula, rather than a fork.
  • Try to limit the flips. Ideally, you should flip each item once during the grilling process.
  • Whatever you do, don’t press down on burgers or chicken (or anything) with a spatula while they’re grilling! This squeezes out the juices and once they’re gone … they’re gone! For great smoky flavor, soak some wood chips (hickory, oak, or other hardwoods)in water for a while, then throw them onto your charcoal and cover the grill, or if you’re using gas, put them into your smoker box following the manufacturer’s instructions.
  • To infuse grilled foods with herb essence, toss herbs directly onto the charcoal while you’re grilling. Or, if you’re using a gas grill, soak the herbs in water, and place them on the grate before putting your food on top of them.
  • If you want to baste your meat or vegetables, save this step for last. That way the sugars in your marinade or sauce won’t have time to caramelize or burn.

Other Grilling Tips

  • When threading food on a skewer, allow 2 inches at one end so you can handle the skewer while it’s on the grill. Also be sure to have oven mitts and a pair of long-handled tongs nearby so you can grasp the skewers to turn them.
  • If you’re short on time, give firm vegetables, like potatoes and carrots, a jump-start by cooking them halfway done in the microwave. Then you can finish them all on the grill.
  • When making foil packets to use on the grill, fold the foil around the ingredients and double-fold all the seams, leaving enough room in the packet for steam to circulate. Place the packets on the grill with the seam side up to prevent leaks and to avoid possible flare-ups. Open the cooked packets very cautiously to allow the steam to escape and to prevent burns.
  • Grilling Asparagus – For foods that could fall into the grill or that would twist around on a skew thread on two parallel skewers. Allow ¼ inch between items to ensure even heating. Then simply turn for even grilling.
  • If you’re looking for a way to give a gourmet touch to your homemade hamburgers, try this…serve them on toasted buns. Simply butter both sides of the buns, place butter-side down on the grill for about 5 minutes or until golden brown. Top with your favorite hamburgers.
  • Test for Doneness – Cook beef, pork and lamb burgers to 160 degrees. Cook chicken or turkey burgers to 165 degrees. To test doneness, use tongs to hold burger while inserting instant-read thermometer horizontally from a side. Make sure thermometer is far enough in to read temperature in center.
  • Spice up your burgers with creative add-ins. For juicer burgers loaded with extra flavor, mix in 2 to 3 tablespoons of beef broth, vegetable juice or other seasoned liquid to a pound of ground meat.
  • Burger Bars: When serving a burger bar at your barbecue, set out a large platter loaded with an assortment of condiments and toppings. Traditional additions include lettuce, shredded and sliced cheese, dill pickles, pickle relish and tomato and onion slices, ketchup mustard, mayonnaise, butter and sour cream. You can also add salsa, pickled jalapeno slices and guacamole for a little zip to your burgers. Some new additions to burgers could also be sautéed mushrooms, warmed process cheese sauce or a can of heated chili, with or without beans.
  • When purchasing ground beef, remember that the fat content factors has everything to do with how flavor the product will be. The leaner cuts contain less fat and will have a drier texture when cooked. Ground sirloin and ground round are very lean cuts that work well in both casseroles and low-fat recipes. Ground chuck has a good balance of fat and lean, making it a perfect choice for hamburgers, meat loaves and meatballs. Ground beef is a combination of several cuts and has a high fat content and is best use for recipes in which you rain the fat from the meat.
  • Making Kabobs: Meat selections that you can choose from are pork, beef, tenderloin, chicken breasts, lamb, kielbasa, salmon, scallops, shrimp, tuna, and swordfish. For vegetables you can include cherry tomatoes, mushrooms, eggplant, pearl onions, zucchini, mushrooms, potatoes, squash, and peppers. What to add some sweetness to your kabobs with fruits like mango, strawberries or pineapple.
  • Beef Doneness Guide: Medium-Rare internal temperature of 145 degrees. Medium internal temperature of 160 degrees. Well-done internal temperature of 170 degrees.
  • For food safety, beef should be thawed in the refrigerator, never at room temperature. Allow 12 to 24 hours to thaw ground beef and steaks. Large roasts require 4 to 7 hours per pound to thaw, while smaller roasts can thaw in 3 to 5 hours.

Success Grilling Steaks:

  • Trim steaks to avoid flare-ups.
  • Pat dry with paper towels before grilling…a dry steak will brown better.
  • Avoid grilling at too high temperature, which will char the outside of the steak before it reaches your desired doneness.

Grilling Chicken:

  • Leave skin on the chicken while grilling to preserve the chicken’s natural moisture.
  • Woods, like hickory mesquite or cherry, can be added to the preheated coals to give the chicken added flavor.
  • Place smaller pieces of chicken around the outer edges, to allow them to cook slower. Always leave space between each piece of chicken for them to brown and cook evenly.
  • White meat and small pieces like breasts and wings will get done faster than dark meat pieces like legs and thighs.

Grilling Turkey:

  • Thawing a turkey in the refrigerator is the best and safest method. Allow up to 5 hours defrosting time per pound.

Tenderizing Ribs:

  • To tenderize ribs place them on a rack in a shallow baking pan. Cover tightly with foil; bake at 350 degrees for 1-1/2 hours and then place on grill.

Grilling Pork:

  • Thin cut pork chops can be easily overcooked. For tender pork chops from the grill buy chops that are about ¾ to 1 inch thick. It’s important to preheat the grill so that the meat’s juices will be quickly sealed in.
  • When threading food on a skewer, allow 2 inches at one end so you can handle them while on the grill. To make sure that everything cooks evenly, don’t crowd food on skewers. It’s best to allow about ¼ inch between items.

Grilling Fish:

  • Add flavor to grilled seafood by sprinkling fresh rosemary, oregano or tarragon onto the hot coals.
  • Always grill fish and seafood to at least an internal temperature of 145 degrees.
  • Grilled seafood will cook more evenly if the pieces are placed about ¾ inch apart on the rack.
  • Be careful not to over marinate seafood. It’s normally tender and fish usually flakes apart.
  • To keep fish from sticking, brush the grill rack lightly with vegetable oil or coat with nonstick cooking spray before starting the grill.

For this homemade corn hole game all you need is bean bags, container lids and flour! Simply lay the container lids down on the lawn and sprinkle flour around the lids to make a circle outline. Without a lot of effort you have your very own homemade corn hole game!

Drip, Drip, Dunk!: This particular game is perfect on an especially warm summer's day. Have participants sit in a circle facing each other. Then, similar to duck duck goose, take turns going around in a circle dribbling water on everyone's heads until you choose someone to dunk. When you make your choice completely dump the cup of water on them and then be ready to run!

Lawn Twister: This fun yard game is a creative spin on a classic! Use circular stencils and spray paint to turn your lawn into a twister game board! For extra fun you could use a tarp, trace circles and place a few dots of paint in each for a painted twister game - just be sure you are definitely outside for this one!

Giant Jenga: This super sized version of the family stacking game is a great way to get everyone in the family involved. Looking for directions to make this fun game? Check out this game and tons more at our Party Time Board on our Pinterest Page at https://www.pinterest.com/coborns/
