Smokin’ BBQ Bliss

The best thing about summer is, hands down, barbecue. Ahhhh those charcoal briquettes, the lighter fluid, that sweet snap of a struck match. My dad had many ways to test when the coals were just hot enough to put food on that sizzling metal as we all eagerly waited for our favorite meat to come off slightly charred and smoky. Smokin’ Mary Bloody Mary Mix adds a punch to your grilling masterpieces by turning up the heat with a BBQ sauce so tasty, too bad the vegans can’t put it on their veggies.

Mary’s Smokin Heat BBQ Sauce


  • 1 cup Smokin’ Mary mix
  • 1 shot of Vodka or Bourbon
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tsp molasses
  • ½ tsp dry mustard or 1 tsp prepared mustard
  • ¾ tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp cayenne pepper


Put all ingredients into a saucepan and simmer until thickened to the consistency you prefer.

Mary Says: If you use Smokin’ Mary Bloody Mary Mix as a marinade for your meats, don’t toss it away, cook it down using the above recipe into a smokin’ good BBQ sauce. This sauce will keep in an air tight container in the fridge for up to a week.
