The forward Drell-Yan (DY) lepton pair production together with a backward jet is proposed as a new way to study the BFKL effects due to a large rapidity gap between the two systems. Predictions for quantities to be measured are computed using the leading order DY impact factors and the BFKL kernel with a consistency condition which takes into account an important part of the next-to-leading order corrections.
