Okay, the answer to this question is probably really, "Beer" but what type of wine do you pair with smoked BBQ? The smoked ribs I made recently went very well with a CA Syrah and I intend to pair that together again tonight.

This is where I probably pull out that fruit forward Malbec or Zin that someone gave me for Christmas last year.

Yes, I've done Zin before and it works, good call. I was surprised by the Syrah and how well it paired. The tannins, spicey/peppery thing, and fruit (although not nearly like a Zin's) seemed to combine nicely with the smokey flavour of the ribs.

I haven't had a malbec that I have liked yet.

I'd do a zin with the BBQ as well. I actually don't like beer with BBQ - the fatty and meaty meat is heavy enough in my stomach, beer seems to make it feel worse.

Ugh, I can't drink beer with anything. Maybe if I was completely naked and sitting on a toilet.

I've liked St Martin de Garrigue Bronzeville with BBQ.

What about Asian food? Tough to find a better match for a lot of those dishes!

I like reisling with Asian food, semi-dry.

I could definitely see a riesling with Asian, but I generally don't drink while eating it.

I should say that were I to drink wine, I would drink riesling. I drink beer with asian food.

So you're saying you agree with a Syrah then?

Riesling, high acid, off dry, is my exact choice for Asian food. Spicy peanut chicken is hard to beat with a nice Riesling.

It's about half syrah, the rest mouverde, grenache, and carignan. It's a lot spicier than the Washington State syrah I drink, and more garrigue then clear fruit. I'm thinking thats the (close to) Provence robustness to smoky, spicy food.
