    Having a little get together at the house today and my son was wanting hot wings, I picked up some wings and now need a sauce recipe. Anyone have and ideas? Thanks for your help!

    I keep mine pretty simple...what I like to do is take a stick of real butter and melt it, dump in a bottle of Frank's Red Hot Sauce, mix and heat. Deep fry wings and toss them in sauce. Simple, but good.

    You posted my recipe for everyone to see it?!?!? [​IMG]

    The good thing with wings is you can fry them, bake them (usually what I do to try and keep the calories down some), grill them or smoke them. All are great!

    You can't go wrong with the traditional butter + hot sauce recipe, however, I also like to sweeten things up just a bit by adding some BBQ sauce and/or sugar to my wing sauce.

    Beautiful thing about hot wings is they taste good no matter what you slather on them, so have a little fun and experiment.

    Thanks guys, going to throw something together. Sounds like they should be pretty good even if I screw up a little!

    +1 on the Frank's Hot Sauce and butter. I drizzle olive oil on the wings then dust them with 2 parts gran. garlic, 2 parts sea salt, 3 parts pepper. Then I grill them, direct heat to get a little char and a nice crisp.

    If you wanted a little different recipe, throw together equal parts of bbq sauce, soy sauce and honey. Finish with some sesame seeds.

    Good luck!

    FRANK's, FRANK's, Frank's!

    I get it from Sam's Club once a year right before Super Bowl, one bIG bottle, last the whole year. I just replaced 2 days ago.

    I use Franks for many different recipe applications
  8. Franks and a stick of butter is always classic, I add red pepper flakes (about a tsp) and garlic powder to it to give it a little extra kick.

  10. For an asian-inspired and DELICIOUS wing, replace Frank's Hot with SRIRACHA.

    You can keep it just as simple... butter + Sriracha and that's it.

    My favorite wing sauce.

    Now that butter and hot sauce is the way to go.

    When I do wings I like to do a couple of sauces for everyone to enjoy. I buy the Franks hot wing sauce and butter as my hot wing sauce. I also make a honey garlic and a parmesan garlic. For the honey garlic its just honey, soy sauce, garlic salt and some pepper. The parmesan garlic is just a lot of butter, parmesan cheese and some garlic salt. I deep fry and then spin them in some tupperware.

    Resurrecting an older thread, but in case anyone's looking, my favorite wing sauce is butter, Texas Pete Louisiana style hot sauce, a splash or two of teriyaki sauce, and just a little brown sugar to taste to compliment the savory side. No real measurements, just mix it up to taste. Round it off with some fresh cracked pepper and you're good to go! I'll give my wings a light breading of 50/50 cornstarch and flour, deep fry, and toss in a bowl with the sauce while they're still hot to soak up the sauce. I've yet to do any on the grill, but I imagine basting them, or used as a mop while smoking, this sauce would be great.

    Hmm... I smell a project coming up. Maybe if I wrap the pieces in a strip of bacon and... Oh lord, I think this place is getting to me... in a GOOD way! :D

    Do a quick search on BBQ Engineer's smoked wings.

    I use Franks, butter, and Tiger Sauce.

    My recommendation would be to SMOKE'M! 

    Sauce, then 275 - 300* for 45 min to an hour, re-sauce, hit'em again for 10 minutes, re-sauce and serve.  I guarantee they will be the best wings you've had.

    I've also injected them with Franks prior to the above process - a bit tidious... but worth it as well.

    Good luck - can't wait to see what you come up with.
