Best Reds for BBQ: All American Style

Summertime is finally here and while you are excited to be grilling on your new Weber, the precious sun-filled days on Nantucket are oftentimes better spent not having to cook (or clean up) for yourself. With the abundance of culinary destinations that this small island has to offer, this gives you the opportunity to stay at the beach a little longer, cast your line in the surf a few mores times or just relax by reading the new murder mystery book recently launched by Nantucket author Elin Hilderbrand. Advanced Sommelier Jenny Benzie offers us an insight into some of the best All American BBQ take-out options available on Nantucket, along with the perfect wine pairing to enjoy while licking your fingers cleans instead of having to do the dishes. _____ ANNYE-body who is hungry will agree that Annye Camara of her eponymous Annye’s Whole Foods is THE go-to for healthy eating and lifestyle on Nantucket Island.
