So, for my first attempt at making the world’s greatest hot wings I used a very simple recipe. I wanted to start simple and tweak it gradually over time so that I truly am able to make the world’s greatest hot wings. So without further ado, here is that recipe:
- 1/3 cup Frank’s Red Hot Sauce
- 1/3 cup butter
- 2 tblsp vinegar
- 1 tblsp garlic powder
This time around I cooked my wings according to the instructions on the package. While that was going, I mixed together the sauce ingredients. I heated up the sauce just enough to melt the butter so I was able to get a nice even constancy with the sauce. Once the wings were done, I took them out, dipped them in the sauce and then put them into a bowl to serve.
The sauce was great! It had some awesome kick to it, not too hot and plenty of flavor. The problem was just dipping the wings into the sauce did not keep nearly enough of it on the wings. Next time I will marinate. Also, I now realize that the quality of the actual wings you are cooking is crucial.
In conclusion, my first attempt at making the world’s greatest hot wings turned out pretty awesome. They were no where near the best wings in the world, but better than some restaurants I’ve been to that claim to have the greatest wings. Next time around I will try the exact same recipe but I’ll marinate the wings in the sauce for at least a few hours before cooking. Also, I will try and find some better quality wings.
Today my wife, Dennay, and I were the only two people that participated in the taste testing. The beer served with our wings was Leinenkugel’s Oktoberfest. No sides to go with the wings today because I just didn’t have that much foresight.
Do you think you know how to make the greatest hot wings in the world? Leave me a comment.
