Moore’s Original Buffalo and Teriyaki Wing Sauces

We’re kicking off our Week of Wings 7 with a “two-fer” review of Moore’s Wing Sauces – their Original Buffalo and their Asian Teriyaki Wing Sauces.

Week of Wings 7 – Day 1 – Moore’s Original Buffalo and Moore’s Asian Teriyaki Wing Sauces

orig-teri

Moore’s Marinades & Sauces out of Birmingham, Alabama, have a stellar lineup of products that you just may not have heard of yet. Or perhaps you’ve seen them on your grocer’s shelves but were afraid to try them. Don’t be. These Moore’s people know their stuff!

Moore’s Original Marinade was introduced over thirty years ago at a steakhouse in the small Alabama town of Jasper. The original hickory marinade, with a delightfully flavorful taste, quickly became well known throughout Alabama and the South.

Along with their Original Marinade, they have their Teriyaki Marinade – PLUS, five wing sauces – four of which we are featuring in our Week of Wings 7 series here on HotSauceDaily.com.

Moore’s Original Buffalo Wing Sauce

A classic “buffalo sauce” of cayenne sauce and butter. Very mild and delicious. Nice balance of cayenne and butter.

Heat Level: Rated 1.5 out of 5 Stars – Mild yet tangy. Perfect for your next football party. Everyone will love these wings! Mild.

Overall flavor: Rated 4 out of 5 Stars – Delicious! Just what wings should be for your guests. Spectacular and so good. Try this sauce!

Moore’s Asian Teriyaki Wing Sauce

Sweet and sticky, a dark umami flavor, and a mild heat that tingles the mouth. Marilyn says the heat is kicked up at about a level 2 for her. The red pepper flake profile is strong.

Overall, there’s nothing out of place here. It’s very sweet, dark, sticky and umami.

Heat Level:Rated 2 out of 5 Stars – Very spicy, dark and delicious! – huge favorite.

Overall flavor: Rated 5 out of 5 Stars – Our top rating! This sauce is the best grocery store teriyaki wing sauce we’ve ever had! – Amazing.

Datil Dew Inferno Wings

It’s back to a sauce review on wings today with Datil Dew Inferno Sauce from PepperProducts.com. Don’t let the “Inferno” name scare you. This is Week of Wings 6 – Day 4.

Datil Dew Inferno Sauce #7

We love Datil pepper based sauces here at HotSauceDaily.com. Whether it’s a BBQ sauce, a dry rub, or in this case a sauce that defies description… if it showcases the Datil pepper from St. Augustine Florida, we are all in.

Datil Dew Inferno 16 oz bottle

Datil Dew Inferno 16 oz bottle

Wanda and Byron Bates have built PepperProducts.com to showcase their many sauces and pickles, all based around the Datil pepper.

The Datil Dew Inferno sauce is:

Ingredients: Tomato paste, corn syrup, vinegar, salt, onion powder, spice and natural flavors, water, brown sugar, red wine vinegar, Datil and habanero peppers, garlic and salt.

A fine tomato base sauce that has the heat to satisfy any pepper head’s palate! Succulent Datil pepper FLAVOR without sacrificing the heat. ~pepperproducts.com

I mentioned earlier to not let the “Inferno” name scare you away – and now I will mention that #7 on the bottle is also a bit over-stated. This sauce is not a 7 out of 10 in heat. I’m not sure why they have a #7 on the label.

Datil Dew Inferno sauce closeup

Datil Dew Inferno sauce is dark mahogany colored with a light-medium consistency.

Heat Level: Rated 2 out of 5 StarsSpicy, hot, sweet, heat.

We cooked up some wings using our standard bake and deep-fry method (Wings 101). We then tossed them into the Datil Dew Inferno sauce, and for the pretty pictures, we painted on even more sauce!

Final Thoughts

Overall Rating: Rated 4 out of 5 Stars – Delicious and easily a repeat sauce. Great Datil based glaze.

Both Marilyn and I thought this sauce is a great glaze on wings with the sweet and fragrant Datil pepper profile.

Vortex grilled wings in a Weber Kettle

I’m geeking out today about a new grilling accessory called Vortex. Designed for use in any Kettle or Kamado style grill, the Vortex makes grilling super crispy wings easy! And of course it’s great for many other uses as you will see. This is Week of Wings 6 – Day 3.

Vortex – inDirect Heat grilling device

01-the-vortex-grill-accessory

This is the Small Vortex for Akorns, Med-Large Eggs, 18.5″ and 22.5″ Weber Kettles, and Kamado Joes

Overall rating: Rated 5 out of 5 Stars – Ranking right up there with cast iron grill grates, this simple cone produces great results! A 5 Star grilling product if I’ve ever seen one. A must have.

Vortex is a cone shaped device that allows for either direct heat or indirect heat in a controlled environment.

You build your charcoal fire in the middle of the Vortex, and with the help of the domed lid of your grill, you get a nice indirect heat zone around the perimeter of the grate.

Simply put, small end up is for indirect heat, and large end up is for direct heat. The uses can get more complicated and more versatile as you will see.

But for now, we’re looking for the perfect grilled crispy chicken wing!

02-the-vortex-closeup

Great quality of build and the welded seams are tight.

The pic above is at a weird angle. The Vortex is not as tiny as it appears here, but I wanted to show off the nice welds, and quality of build of this all stainless steel device.

Hot Whang! and Hot Ass Whang! Chicken Rubs

Hot Whang! and Hot Ass Whang! Chicken Rubs.

We are grilling our wings today with Mad Hunky Brand Meat Seasonings Hot Whang! Chicken Rub. Yea, that’s a mouth full. And Rich Tirpak at MadHunkyMeats.com was kind enough to toss in a sample of Hot Ass Whang! Rub for us to try. (Read thru to the end to see how to get these rubs and many other seasonings for practically free shipping when you purchase a Vortex.)

closeup of hot whang versus hot ass whang rub - one is better.

One of these thangs is not like the other. Sort of close up of the rubs.

See what I did there? One of these thangs is better than the other. 🙂 While both rubs are top notch, we did have a favorite.

We started our coals in a chimney and poured them into the Vortex. This little wing furnace will be cranking out the heat soon.

That’s our obligatory pic of some fat wings ready to die go on the grill. There aren’t as many Hot Ass Whang! wings ‘cuz we was skeered!

Wings around perimeter - bone ends in. No need for flipping or turning.

Wings around perimeter – bone ends in. No need for flipping or turning.

Finally an action shot!

Arranging the wings around the Vortex, with bone ends in, allows the intense heat from the Vortex to circulate around the wings via the dome. There is no need to flip, turn, or just plain ol’ mess with the wings while they get all crispy and done.

You’ll notice our air temp probe is in place (shooting for 350 -375 degrees), and we use our ThermaPen to check the temps of the wings – Vortex or no Vortex, you don’t grill chicken without knowing the meat is at 165º or better when done.

Finished Hot Whang! Chicken Rub wings

These wings were savory with a nice dry crunch to them. The heat level was disappointing – Hot Whang! was not. Mild heat lovers would be happy with it though. Hot Whang! has a delicious flavor, and as a dry rub seasoning, it really does shine. Just not enough for us. Average.

Finished Hot Ass Whang! Chicken Rub wings

Finished Hot Ass Whang! Chicken Rub wings

We only had one question about these Hot Ass Whang! wings… why didn’t we make more? Of the 3 versions here, these hot little wingies stole the show. While just a bit hotter than the original Hot Whang! rub… there was so much more flavor. More sweet, more heat, and more savory goodness.

Hot Ass Whang! Chicken Rub was the big winner here.

Heat Level: Rated 2.5 out of 5 Stars – Medium to medium hot, these dry crunchy spicy wings are winners. Best dry rubbed wings so far this year!

Finished Hot Whang! Chicken Rub wings wet and sticky style

Finished Hot Whang! Chicken Rub wings wet and sticky style

These wings are the original Hot Whang! Chicken Rub with the addition of spritzing on liquid to keep them moist and sticky.

It’s a great concept – 1/2 water and 1/2 white vinegar – spritzed on about 3 or 4 times during the cook. Once near the beginning, once or twice during the cook, and a final spritz at the end of the grilling session.

The method did make for some nice, wet and sticky wings… but we decided we liked the dry rubbed better. Sticky and tacky.

Clockwise from top: Hot Whang! Chicken Rub, Hot Ass Whang! rub, and Hot Whang! rub done wet style with the vinegar spray.

Final Thoughts:

The Vortex is available at http://madhunkymeats.com/

If you purchase a Vortex, there is a ton of space within the Vortex and box that Rich can fill with any rub you desire. Shop around on his site, pick out the rubs and seasonings and brines you’d like to try and he’ll fit them into the box with the Vortex and you’ll only pay for shipping the Vortex.

The Vortex is available in Small (our version), Medium for 22.5″ and 26.75″ Weber Kettles, XL Big Green Eggs, Big Joe (Kamado Joe), and Large for Ceramics Only – XL Big Green Egg, Big Joe (Kamado Joe), Primo cookers.
