Whenever Anita and I are in the Gatlinburg, Tennessee, area we always make it a point to swing by a Pepper Palace store. They have several stores in the area, including a new one in Sevierville in an area called The Island. We also usually end up at one of the stores in downtown Gatlinburg. The stores always seem busy. People everywhere are enjoying samples of the hot sauces and salsas, from the hot to the mild. Me, I headed straight to the wing sauces and in particular, Pepper Palace’s own line of Wing Master sauces, including this Ranch sauce.
As soon as we returned from our trip I threw a few seasoned wings onto my Weber Performer grill outfitted with the Vortex insert. When the wings were done I tossed them with the Ranch sauce and dug in. The sauce is mellow with a hint of Ranch flavors. There’s a slight wing sauce kick, but again, not overwhelming. It’s a very enjoyable sauce, that won’t scare off anyone that doesn’t like hot hot wings.
Pepper Palace has a wide range of sauces, from the extremely hot to the nice and mellow. The Ranch sauce is nice and mellow with not a lot of heat. I seasoned the wings with your standard Ranch dressing seasoning mix, which complimented the sauce flavors perfectly. And since I was on a Ranch them, might as well have some Ranch salad dressing for dipping!
You can order Pepper Palace’s sauces online but if it is well worth stopping in at one of their many stores.free eCookbook that is full of my favorite wing recipes. Also check out my always-growing list of my favorite store-bought wing sauces.
