Chili Dans BBQ Bloody Mary recipe

Continuing our Sunday Bloody Mary series, we are featuring a unique BBQ Bloody Mary Recipe using Chili Dan’s All Purpose Start to Finish Sauce, his custom rim topper recipe, V8 Vegetable Juice, and garnished with some spicy pickled green beans from Blaze’s. This is a BBQ Bloody Mary Recipe that you can craft to be your own.

BBQ Bloody Mary Recipe using Chili Dan’s All Purpose Sauce

Chili Dan's BBQ Bloody Mary Recipe

One of our Top Favorite Products in 2013, Chili Dan’s All Purpose Start to Finish Sauce is the basis for this unique BBQ flavored Bloody Mary recipe. Sweet and savory, we reviewed Chili Dan’s here.

Now, “Chili Dan” Miller is going to have my head on a platter for suggesting that this is a BBQ Bloody Mary Recipe. Chili Dan’s All Purpose Sauce is anything BUT a BBQ sauce… but we have to categorize this somehow… and so BBQ it is.

Make this your own version

The beauty of this recipe, like all good recipes, is that you can make it your own! While we would love for you to get your hands on a couple of bottles of Chili Dan’s Sauce… you can substitute any other favorite BBQ sauce (sweeter is best here) and any spice blend you like for the glass rim. And while Blaze’s Pickled Green Beans is celebrating 20 years up in Vancouver, Canada… again, garnishes are up to you. BTW, Blaze’s Green Beans are easily ordered for shipping to the US on their website. Pas de problème.

Overview of the Chili Dan’s Bloody Mary Recipe

You’re going to pour a little bit of Chili Dan’s (or your favorite BBQ sauce) onto a dish to wet the rim of your glass.

Chili Dan's Rim seasonings

You’re going to dredge the wet rimmed glass in Chili Dan’s Rim Topper seasoning (or your favorite seasonings).

Fill that glass with ice, and add 1 or 2 or 3 tablespoons of Chili Dan’s All Purpose Start to Finish Sauce (or your favorite BBQ sauce).

Add 1 or 2 or 3 ounces of your favorite adult beverage (Vodka in this case. Tequila if it’s Saturday Night. Whiskey if you live in Kentucky or Tennessee.)

Chili Dan's Bloody Mary Finished

Add the Blaze’s Beans and/or any garnishes you like. Chili Dan calls for a “floater” of 1/2 ounce juice (brine) from the pickled beans. I passed on that step.

Final Thoughts: Rated 5 out of 5 Stars – Refreshing. Probably the most enjoyable and refreshing Bloody Mary I’ve had in a long time. The overall sweet taste was a nice departure from the typical hot, spicy, horseradish-laden Bloody Mary mixers. NOT THAT THERE’S ANYTHING WRONG WITH THAT!

Margarita Chicken Wings

Tangy, a little salty, and not too sweet. Prep and Cook Time: 25 minutes, plus at least 3 hours to marinate.
Just like the cocktail it’s named for, this easy marinade is a four-ingredient flavor explosion of tart, sweet, and salty all rolled up into one. Here it’s used to jazz up chicken wings, but it works wonders for flank steak, grilled pork, and chicken thighs too.

Old Bay – Santa Maria Seasoning

Dougherty’s Wings – arguably the best chicken wings on the planet.
These grilled wings are seasoned with a Santa Maria seasoning and Old Bay Seasoning. They are basted with a mix of Foster’s Beer, brown sugar and Walkerswood (wet) jerk seasoning. A little complex, and a hard recipe to follow, but you Weber Kettle grillers should have no problem.
