Mixed Grill with Rib Eyes, Sausages and Bacon Chops
At his cowboy picnic at Prather Ranch, Chris Cosentino served copious amounts of meat, including Italian sausages, Prather's rib eyes, and "caveman" bacon chops, large cuts of pork that include the chop and a piece of the belly. Ask your butcher to cut the pork chops from near the shoulder, leaving the belly meat attached. More Grilled Pork Recipes
This prodigious sampling of grilled meats could be paired with any number of robust red wines, but if there's one red grape that's distinctly identified with grilling, it's Zinfandel. Old-vine bottlings in particular offer briary, intense fruit flavors and substantial structure—a great combination for hearty chops and sausages.
