    Thursday evening I was putting together a list of things that I needed to pick up for Friday's smoked spare ribs. I love traditional BBQ sauces, but I was in the mood for something a little different. About the same time I saw a commercial for some vodka and they showed a Bloody Mary. That really got the taste buds tingling. I started thinking that it would be something a little different and definitely unique to have a Bloody Mary BBQ sauce.

    So this is what I came up with.
    • 2 stalks of celery cleaned and chunked up.
    • 8-10 oz. favorite catsup
    • juice of 1 lemon
    • juice of 1/2 lime
    • 1/2 tsp. salt (adjust for your taste)
    • 1/8 tsp. pepper (adjust to taste)
    • dash of Tobasco Hot sauce
    • 1-2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
    Put it all in a blender and blend till it is relatively smooth.

    The celery will give it a slight grainy texture.

    I did add just a little water to thin it down slightly. but it really wasn't necessary.

    I think it turned out fantastic. I will definitely make it again.

    Oops, Left one thing out. I also used a dash of horseradish in the sauce.

    Technically, wouldn't this be virgin Mary BBQ sauce. It does sound interesting.

    Guess it probably would be a Virgin Mary. Of course you could use a little vodka instead of the water to thin it and it really would be a Bloody Mary. [​IMG]

    Just a side note. We used the sauce with pork ribs and it was great. But -  I think it would be even better used with beef.

    I was thinking chicken wings.

    Why not use celery powder? It will solve the texture problem.

    I was thinking of using my juicer for the celery.

    Definitely would be good with the chicken wings or even pulled chicken. I had considered using the celery powder but it just didn't seem right when we had the real stuff for the mixture. If we had a juicer, I would really have gone that way with the celery. all really good ideas. I may try some variations for the next batch.
