Video: DEFCON Sauces at Fiery-Foods Show

John Dilley’s Defcon Sauces at the Fiery-Foods Show

As seen on the Travel Channel, here’s a short clip of Defcon’s segment on The Travel Channel’s recent “Extreme Conventions” show. Considering the whole Fiery-Foods’ segment ran about 8 minutes, Defcon was featured for 3 minutes.

I was disappointed that the 1 hour “Extreme Conventions” show on The Travel Channel only devoted 8 minutes to the Fiery-Foods Show. Guess that’s the limited corporate mentality of The Travel Channel – “we can’t fill an hour just about hot sauce!”. Hmmm. Bet they could!

Hooters Are the Best Wings in the Universe

Is There a Better Hot Wing Than Hooters’ ?

We love to make our own hot wings and our current favorite is our own Sriracha Garlic Wings. You’ve got to check them out. But…

When it comes to carry-out, Hooters makes us happy!

The breading on the wings and the way it absorbs the sauce – the size of the wings themselves… there’s nothing better.
Some people order them “naked” which means without breading and get the sauce is on the side. My Mom would do that. But why?

My wife Marilyn likes the “Hot” style, with a side of “Three Mile”… she’s coming around.

The breading is the magic that is Hooters’ hot wings. It’s what makes them the best in the universe. And, in my opinion, the “Three-Mile Island” sauce is their best!
Yea, they have “911” – their hottest sauce, but it’s all heat and no flavor.
Next down is the “Three Mile Island” sauce – very hot, but with a great flavor. Like a medium level extract-style sauce.
Then there’s the “hot”, “medium” and “mild” flavors – but if you’re reading this blog, you’re not going lower than “hot” anyway.
They also offer “spicy garlic”, “parmesan garlic” and “samurai”, and some local franchise’s have BBQ wings, but now we’re getting out of the “hot wing” arena.

Typically hot wings come with celery and blue cheese (or ranch) dressing. I am disappointed that Hooters charges extra for celery and blue cheese (a plastic cup of a commercial product), but when we bring them home, we make our own blue cheese anyway. See recipe link below.

Before you order your wings from Hooters, cut up your own celery sticks and make our easy blue cheese dressing. (You can even do this the night before.) Then when you get your order home, the sauce will be soaked into the breading, and you’ll have the best carry-out wings in the universe!

Hot Sriracha Garlic Chicken Wings

Sriracha HOT chili sauce, crispy chicken wings, and tons of garlic, make these spicy wings the *best* chicken wings we’ve ever cooked!

The wings are marinated in olive oil & spices, then baked for 30 mins. before being deep-fried to finish cooking, and get their wonderfully crispy skin. Then, you toss them in the Sriracha, butter, cilantro, and garlic sauce before serving. Yum!!!
