Matt Pittman, Meat Church BBQ, prepares this classic adult beverage in the Big Green Egg and adds his own twist to the Grilled Bloody Mary.
10-12 roma tomatoes
1 poblano pepper
1 jalapeño pepper
1 red onion, quartered
3 limes, halved
Smoked pepper infused vodka
2 tbsp. Worcestershire Sauce
1 tsp. Tabasco sauce
1 tsp. fresh horseradish
4 tsp. Spicy Rub
Spicy green beans (optional garnish)
Hot pickled okra (optional garnish)
Lime wedge (optional garnish)
Celery stalks (optional garnish)
MEAT like Slim Jim’s, Benny’s Beef straws (optional garnish)
Grill the poblano pepper for 10 – 12 minutes or until it appears to have softened. Remove the pepper and place it in a small bowl and cover with saran wrap to let it steam. Set aside. We are trying to loosen the blistered skin so we can remove it.
Grill the tomatoes and onion for approximately 15 minutes, also until softened. Flip at least once during the grill.
Add the whole jalapeño and limes for the last five minutes of the cook. Remove all of the vegetables to cool. Core and seed the jalapeño (unless you like it hot!) and remove the skin and seeds from the poblano.
Place the tomatoes, peppers and onions in a blender. Juice the limes into the mixture. Blend until very smooth.
Add Worcestershire, Tabasco sauce, horseradish and rub. Mix thoroughly. You may need to pour this mixture through as a strainer as it is pretty thick. Chill the mixture for a few hours. This cools it as well as allow the flavors to more thoroughly come out. When you are ready for breakfast, pour the Bloody Mary mixture into a glass with ice along with a shot or 2 of vodka. Garnish like crazy and enjoy!
Smoked Pepper Infused Vodka Ingredients
1 750ml bottle of vodka
6 chipotle peppers
Smoked Pepper Infused Vodka Instructions
Peppers of your choice, but we like serrano and jalapeño.
Smoke the peppers (indirect with the convEGGtor on a Big Green Egg at 200°F/93°C. ) until the peppers are completely dry. This process could take 15-20 hours. Let the peppers cool.
Place the vodka in an airtight container such as a large mason jar. Drop the desired amount of peppers in and let it sit 3-5 days.
