HELPFUL TIPS THAT MAKE THIS WORK FOR ME: Say NO to BUTTER!!! lol After trying the most popular wings recipes on this site, I got the baking down (350 for 45 min, take out and re-spray w/pam to make crispy, then 375 for 15 min) .........but I was not satisfied w/the hot sauce! No matter what I added or reduced, it still tasted too buttery. I also didn't want hot because we have toddlers in the house who eat them. Well, this recipe was a hit BUT with some minor modifications like NO BUTTER!!! Even when you cut the butter in half, you still can taste it. Plus it makes the sauce slide off the wings. I add about 2T ketchup or a tad more to the 2T honey and 1/3C hot sauce of any kind. The ketchup and honey really cut down on it being hot the butter would but w/o adding the unneeded GREASE! They stick real nicely too! I love them!!! So if you keep thinking something is just not right, try my suggestions!


Having been born and raised in Western NY, this is the closest recipe I have seen that matches a basic wing sauce. It's a great base and allows for multiple alterations. My wife generally just uses the butter and hot sauce (specifically Franks, it seems to be the best for wings.) But after you make the base, you can do just about anything to flavor it. Teriyaki sauce is a good additive, garlic is ALWAYS great, honey is a good sweetener and tends to bring out the flavor, as does brown sugar although you should start small. (Like about a tbsp for this size batch.) But if you're looking for the way we like 'em back home in Buffalo, this is it. Enjoy.


Typically I prefer a pretty spicy wing, and if you're looking for a hot and spicy wing sauce this isn't it. But If you like wings in general this sauce has outstanding flavor!!!! The ketchup is virtually undetectable it just help make it thicker and the honey gives it a real nice sweetness with just enough pepper sauce to give it some warmth. Not a hot wing sauce but it has real great flavor!!!
