Now I'm not usually one for whisky food combinations in the strict sense, as I most often am more like to pair food with wine or beer. But BBQ is my main exception to the rule. I make my own sauce from scratch and put in some bourbon while I'm sauteing the onions, garlic and jalapenos.
While I'm earting I most often will pour a glass of good quality bourbon (on the rocks if I'm eating outside) and also have a glass of beer with my food. It's a great combination and if you've never tried it I highly reccommend it.
