Unique BBQ Sauce

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

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.

You had me at "unique"     Change is part of the spice of life, this is going in my recipe book. Thanks!

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. thumb1.gif

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.
