Week of Wings 5 – Day 7. We’re wrapping up our Week of Wings 5 with a look at some recipes that just scream “Yes! Try me!”. You know the types… sexy wings, bathed in sauce or grilled to perfection. Great pictures that tempt you to cook them up and realize your pics will never be that good. 🙂

If you’ve stuck with us for the entire week, we thank you for reading. I’m sorry we neglected to have any grilled wings this year, but the weather has just not cooperated. Nevertheless… let’s check out these recipes together, and see if any of them become a favorite. Let us know if you try any of these.

Margarita Chicken Wings

Tangy, a little salty, and not too sweet. Prep and Cook Time: 25 minutes, plus at least 3 hours to marinate.
Just like the cocktail it’s named for, this easy marinade is a four-ingredient flavor explosion of tart, sweet, and salty all rolled up into one. Here it’s used to jazz up chicken wings, but it works wonders for flank steak, grilled pork, and chicken thighs too.

Old Bay – Santa Maria Seasoning

Dougherty’s Wings – arguably the best chicken wings on the planet.
These grilled wings are seasoned with a Santa Maria seasoning and Old Bay Seasoning. They are basted with a mix of Foster’s Beer, brown sugar and Walkerswood (wet) jerk seasoning. A little complex, and a hard recipe to follow, but you Weber Kettle grillers should have no problem.

Spicey Rooster Buffalo Wing Sauce

Our Week of Wings 5 continues on Day 3 with Buffalo Wing Sauce from Spicey Rooster.

Week of Wings 5 – Day 3. We’re still in the land of “mild” wing sauces with Spicey Rooster BBQ Company’s Buffalo Wing Sauce today, although upping the heat a notch.

Coincidentally, Randy and Gloria Combs are also from Ohio, as were Sam and Joyce from Day 1’s Sissy Sally post. Spicey Rooster BBQ Company’s motto is “This ain’t your ordinary barnyard chicken”. Let’s see what their Buffalo Wing Sauce does to our chicken.

Preparation: Deep fried. We did our usual 3 step cook – baked at 350º for 40 minutes (turning once half-way through), deep fried at 350 – 375º for 2 – 3 minutes, then tossed in the sauce. See our Wings 101 post for more info.

Ingredients: aged cayenne peppers, vinegar, soy oil, hydrogenated soy oil, soy lecithin, water, salt, garlic, onion, sugar, natural flavor, horseradish, lemon, spices, citric acid.

I’m liking the addition of horseradish and lemon that help “brighten up” the overall flavor of this sauce. I’m puzzled by all the soy products, and suspect that’s how this sauce gets its bright color.

spicey rooster buffalo wing sauce texture

Texture and Appearance: On the medium-thin side, this smooth sauce is bright orange in color. Marilyn thinks it’s a classic buffalo sauce color with a creamy looking finish.

On the wings, the sauce sets up as a medium thick coat with a light shiny finish. It tends to sit on top of the wings, yielding a very wet wing… and the overall coating reduces the crispiness of the deep-fried skin. Hearty and handsome.

Taste on wings: Very tangy, very little sweetness. First up is the classic cayenne flavor, followed by the vinegar tang. Again, a classic taste that is also not too vinegary here. Since we eat with our eyes too, the orange color has me expecting to taste some butter or even mustard, but the soy is doing its job to bring on the “buttery” consistency and flavor. Enjoyable.

Heat Level: Rated 1.5 out of 5 Stars – Just a tad above mild. Typical of a mild buffalo wing at your local bar. The heat does build ever so slightly as you eat more, yet never reaches beyond the short range of 1 – 1.5. Mildly spicy.

Overall rating: Rated 2 out of 5 Stars – While certainly tangy and zingy in overall flavor, with a mild heat level, Spicey Rooster’s Buffalo Wing Sauce is fine as bottled sauces go. We can see this sauce on your grocer’s shelves. Its classic taste (sans butter) would appeal to everyone at your party or game day gathering. Above average.

About Spicey Rooster BBQ Company

Marilyn met Randy and Gloria Combs at Jungle Jim’s in Ohio in 2013, and proudly brought home a bottle of their Hysteria Hot Sauce – which we think highly of, and need to get around to reviewing.

While Spicey Rooster is in a state a flux regarding their website and online store, the best way to order their Buffalo Wing Sauce is to simply email Randy at [email protected] – at only $6 per 12 ounce bottle, we think it’s a good deal. And why not throw in a bottle of Hysteria Hot Sauce for a fun surprise?
