    Re: buffalo-sauce - need recommendation

    You can make a good sauce by cooking a little garlic in some olive oil, add in butter, then a hot sauce of your choice. I like Louisiana or Texas Pete's personally. The ratio of butter to hot sauce is your heat control.

    For the blue cheese, I always hit up the produce section of the grocery store and they have the fancy dressings that are refrigerated. Typically these are of better quality and fresher tasting than the stuff with the other dressings.

      I'm pretty sure you can order anchor bar sauce... probably no by tonight though.

        Re: buffalo-sauce - need recommendation

        I'm a a big Frank's Hot Sauce guy. And being in MA I know you can get it in one of the local Stop & Shop's or Hanneford's.

        Buffalo Wings are a family favorite in my house for sure and I make them at least once a month to the delight of my family.

        Some tips I follow for my wings.

        Always buy fresh (relatively) wings. Don't go for those mega bags of frozen wings if you can help it. Yes it's more work to cut the wing's into pieces but it's worth it in the long run. The frozen ones usually are injected with a water/salt mixture and I find them to be tough upon cooking.

        Season your flour before you dredge the wings through it. I use about 4 tbs of Emeril's Essence to each 2 cups of flour. The recipe for Emeril's Essence is below. I make up a batch and store it in an empty spice container to have on hand all the time. I also season the wings before dredging them through the flour.

        After dredging the wings cook them about 12-14 minutes @ 375. Remove from oil. Set aside for a couple of minutes then dip them in sauce individually. Remove from sauce and bake in 450 degree oven 10 minutes. Serve with chunky blue cheese dressing

        Frank's does make a wing sauce that is based on their hot sauce but I always use the regular hot sauce. But first I dump the whole bottle in a stock pot then melt a stick of butter or margerine. When that comes up to simmer I add a few tablespoons of honey.

        My secrets--I dip each wing with the tongs for maximum coverage of sauce and then--super important--bake the wings for 10 more minutes in a super hot oven. MMmmmm...that sauce with the honey bakes right in. So much better than just tossing them in the sauce.

        Sometimes I'll dip them in egg first...then flour...if I want them really crunchy.

        FECK...now I'm going to have to make them for my supper...THANKS W6...!!

        Have fun...cripes...Your making them for the GAME !! me Too !!

        1 tablespoon black pepper

        1 tablespoon cayenne pepper
        1 tablespoon dried oregano
        1 tablespoon dried thyme

              Why not jerk it? ...

              I know what you're thinking... sicko.


              But really. I grabbed this from allrecipes a while ago.

              Eight skinless chicken thighs
              1 tablespoon onion flakes
              2 teaspoons dried mixed herbs
              2 teaspoons sugar
              2 teaspoons salt
              1 teaspoon all spice
              1 teaspoon black pepper
              1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
              teaspoon nutmeg
              teaspoon cinnamon

              Method:
              Throw all the ingredients other than the chicken into a mixing bowl and
              give it a wiz round with a spoon. Lay your chicken out and gently work
              the jerk seasoning into all areas of the thigh. Grill over medium heat for
              about 20 minutes and enjoy! To complete the Caribbean BBQ it’s got to
              be a “dark and stormy” – 1 measure of dark rum topped up with ginger
              beer.
              Shown here with Jasmine Rice and a Mango Salsa.



              Second time I made it I cut the cayenne in half... YMMV. I also didn't try the dark and stormy, this was the night I perfected my Rum Runner recipe. Mmmm... now I'm hungry.

                What? How can this be? The greatest drink of all time...you passed on? All Hail Goslings black rum and Ginger beer.

                  For homemade, I agree, Franks is the way to go. And I've tried their wing sauce and am going back to just regular Franks and butter.

                  For dressing, I like Marie's Blue Cheese in the refrigerated part of the produce section. The "normal" kind is very chunky. I like to stir a tiny bit of crushed garlic into the dressing. (You should just barely taste it.)

                  For takeout, I like Wingstop. They have a variety of sauces and dips, and you can get wings or strips. (I prefer strips.)

                  Schwanns makes strips in "french fry form factor", ie. long skinny strips of breaded chicken. (Schwanns delivers to your house from a refrigerated truck, and has all kinds of yummy stuff. I also like their Pigs in Blankets for breakfast, little sausages wrapped in blueberry pancake.)

                    Mmmm jerk chicken. My recipe is similar to that one but uses habaneros or scotch bonnets instead of cayenne and a little bit less sugar. Capsicum chinense peppers have a nice sweet, fruity flavor in addition to the heat that really comes thru after cooking.

                      An easy recipe that my restaurant uses for a mild sauce:
                      Equal parts Frank's Hot Sauce & Liquid Margarine

                      Also, my local grocery carries a line of yogurt based dressings and they are yummy!

                          How'd they come out Whisk...?

                          This reminds me of the old "Tactical Recipes" thread. That was fun too.

                            I just used straight Franks... came out pretty good... i've got some uncooked wings left over, so i'll fire those up soon with the franks+butter recipe... adding butter always makes things better :D
