    I love chicken wings, and want to attempt making my own sauce. There’s lots of bottled sauces but I wanna try making my own. I’m sure there’s a base ingredient list, similar to when you make bbq sauce, and there’s lots of online recipes. However, I wanted to ask my fellow tele heads. If you have any spicy recipes, that’s even better!

    I thought the original Buffalo wing sauce was just Louisiana hot sauce (like Red Dot) mixed with butter. I like this over a crispy fried wing.

    A ba-jillion sauces out there.

    I like to rub mine with jerk seasoning, then put some Baby Rays BBQ on them ... maybe even mix a bit of the jerk seasoning into the BBQ sauce. This works best with smoked or grilled wings.

    I know someone who owns a small chain of wing restaurants. They buy Louisiana hot sauce and butter in vast quantities, then cook them together in a huge cauldron. Simple, but effective.

    You can make all sorts of wing sauces, but the very basic sauce, the one that originated in Buffalo, is essentially butter and Tabasco. Melt the butter, throw in hot sauce and that's pretty much it.

    EDITED TO ADD: I guess y'all beat me to it.

    What I used to do to fill some bellies when camping was to get a couple of foil pans, and put some thickly slived onion in the bottom (keeps the chicken off the foil). Put foil on the top and on the fire until the chicken is cooked. A bottle of Frank's and a bunch of butter and everyone ate happy. I didn't use wings much, though -- I was feeding hungry people.

    Add a little Scorpion Pepper or Carolina Reaper sauce. Make it worth while.

    The original is butter and Frank's. I like Dinosaur Wango Tango for a change of pace.

    As someone from the Buffalo area I can confirm the Frank's Red Hot sauce and butter mixture. Something I like to do instead of adding more butter to lower the heat factor is to add some honey. It adds sweetness the wings while also cooling them down a bit. I prefer hotter stuff anyway but the honey just adds a nice touch to the wings.

    I remember reading somewhere that the Anchor recipe is margarine instead of butter, plus a bit of vinegar, cayenne, Worcestershire and maybe garlic powder. Who knows.

    I like the idea of adding just a bit of honey or maple syrup.

    Cheers,
    Geoff

    A lot of references to "butter"....Just how much do you add?
    Just to thicken it up I'm assuming. Also, anyone ever tried a little brown sugar for the rub before adding the sauce?

    It helps the sauce stick. I add 2T for a dozen wings.

    Here you go: https://www.allrecipes.com/recipe/219109/buffalo-chicken-wing-sauce/

    This is the recipe I use, its pretty foolproof and you can add more or less of things to taste, I add a couple of cloves of fresh garlic run through a garlic press. Never tried a rub on the wings but if you toss them in a little corn starch before they go in the fryer it will help them crisp up.

    I used to add a little balsamic vinegar also. Just don't breathe in the fumes when you're heating it up

    I make a batch of this every 2 weeks or so. It's what I like so others may not care for it. It's a sweet/hot sauce. I've taylored it to make it cheap and easy while still tasting good.

    One jar peach jam
    1/3rd to 1/2 or so bottle of sirracha
    Two handfulls of white sugar
    Nice big handfull of brown sugar
    Squirt or two of cheap yellow mustard
    Splash or two of vinegar (pickled pepper juice if handy)
    Bunch of shakes of dried onion, the more the better
    Teaspoon or so of minced garlic
    Dash of allspice
    Big dash of ginger
    Several dashes of cumin
    Couple dashes of black pepper
    Dash or two tumeric (or leave out)
    Couple dashes of sea salt
    Bring to boil and can it or just pour in a large mason jar and use it.
    I use it as a chip dip, on wings and such.
    For taco sauce just cut the sugar and add more mustard and a little more vinegar.

    Classic Buffalo Wing recipe is a cayenne pepper sauce, thickened with butter and some garlic.

    My own recipe I use Red Hot as the base, but add some habanero sauce or scotch bonnet to kick the heat up.

    In 1991 I was kitchen manager at a local tavern. We had insanity wings- if you could eat a dozen in a half hour without drinking more than 1 beer you didn't have to pay for them.

    Recipe was Red Hot, pureed red pepper flakes, additional cayenne pepper, white pepper (sustained the burn), Bacardi 151 and boil. Once it was reduced by a third you'd dredge the wings, roll in red pepper flakes and cayenne that had been pulsed in a food processor, microwave them to make the sauce stick.

    I spilled some on a stainless cooler bottom, wiped it up and the stainless looked brand new.
