When my husband and I were asked what we wanted for our wedding dinner, both of us said in unison "pulled pork"! Unfortunately, Smokin' Mary Bloody Mary Mix was just a twinkle, so ours wasn't as smokin' as this recipe, but it's equally appropriate for any occasion, even a back yard wedding.
Smokin' Mary Pulled Pork
In a air tight bag (FoodSaver/Ziploc) place the roast and the Smokin' Mary Mix , seal and then put in fridge for 1 day.
Set smoker to 175 degrees.
Pull roast from bag and place onto smoker for 6-8 hrs.
Take mix and from bag, pour it into a medium sauce pan, add Bourbon, brown sugar, mustard, molasses and onions. Bring to boil, then reduce to simmer and reduce to 1/2.
Cool, cover and place in fridge until later.
Once the roast reaches 190 degrees, remove it from smoker and let cool.
Shred roast; reheat sauce and then mix together.
If you want a killer pulled pork sandwich, serve on two waffles with bread and butter pickles, maple syrup and sharp cheddar cheese. Yum!

Smokin' Mary Lobster Stuffing
Blend everything together in a food processor, pulsing lightly.
You can use this stuffing as a topper for steaks, pork chops, chicken. Or as a stuffing for peppers, mushrooms, etc.
Meatballs are one diverse food. First of all, it doesn't matter what kind of meat you use: beef, pork, chicken, turkey, or tofu, they are fun size morsels that can be dunked or simmered with a variety of sauces to delight the tastebuds. Using Smokin' Mary Bloody Mary Mix as a base for your meatballs gives these little treats a kick that will be sure to start a meal off right.
We like to make appetizer meatballs for an impressive pre-game snack. We like to bake the meatballs, but you can cook them in a slow cooker or InstaPot as well.
Holy Smokin' Meatballs!

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 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.
