Meijer Bourbon Honey Mustard Wing Sauce

Is it possible for a bottled store-brand wing sauce to be too good? No, but Meijer Bourbon Honey Mustard wing sauce is about as good as you can get. All of the flavors are balanced and at just the right levels for me. Not too much bourbon flavor. Just the right honey sweetness. And the right mustardy vinegar kick. It’s different and delicious.

I contacted Meijer’s corporate office about the fact that I couldn’t find their Honey Bourbon wing sauce online. As of the time of this post they haven’t added it yet. So just head to your local Meijer and grab a bottle from the condiment section. While you’re there grab a few bottles of the other great Meijer wing sauces.

Also check out Meijer’s Sweet Chili, medium Buffalo and Mango Habanero wing sauces. They’re darned good too!

I absolutely love chicken wings, cooked any way, with any sauce (or without). I love them so much that I created a free eCookbook that is full of my favorite wing recipes.

Garlic-Q Wings

Alliger’s House of Wings has some of most awesome wing sauces I’ve ever had. I just cannot get enough of them. The other really cool thing about Alliger’s is that their website has simple recipes for combining their sauces to make new flavors. Like these Garlic-Q wings. It’s a wonderful combination of, you guessed it, garlic wing sauce and BBQ wing sauce! The garlic sauce by itself is pretty garlicky. Add in some BBQ wing sauce and you get this awesome new taste with just the perfect amount of spice.
Garlic-Q Wings
Garlic-Q wings are a great way to bring a little something different to the party. We’ve all had garlicky wings. We’ve all had BBQ wings. But Garlic-Q wings? Now, that’s new. And it’s so crazy easy to make!

Also try my chili garlic wings!

Kroger Medium Wing Sauce

I’ve said it before. If you’re standing in the wing sauce section of the grocery store, trying to decide on the next sauce you’re going to grab for a great batch of wings, do not hesitate to try the store brand. I was at Kroger, and I couldn’t help myself. I grabbed one each of every one of their sauces, including the Kroger Medium Wing Sauce. The sauce turned out to be perfect! A decent hint of heat (a bit more than Kroger’s Mild Wing Sauce) and the perfect consistency. This is a mighty fine wing sauce, and boy, the price was right!
Kroger Medium Wing SauceIf you by chance end up with any leftover medium wing sauce, toss it in the fridge. Make sure you warm it a bit (at least to room temperature) before using it on your next batch of wings. Nothing makes hot wings sad faster than tossing them in cold wing sauce!

Kroger also makes a fantastic Parmesan garlic wing sauce. Try it too!

Jalapeno Peach Wings

I think it’s safe to say that I am addicted to chicken wings. They’re one of the most versatile dishes you can make. There are literally thousands of different sauces and seasonings for them. When I walk thru the grocery store I always look to see what is in season. Chances are, whatever it is, it can be made into a wing sauce. These jalapeno peach wings are a great example. That wonderful peach flavor with just a little spicy kick. Add a little sweetness and a nice vinegary snap and you end up with fantastic tasting wings.

Jalapeno Peach Wings

I wouldn’t hesitate to make an extra big batch of the sauce and use it to slather onto grilled or roasted chicken. Or brush it onto a rack of ribs just before pulling them off your smoker or grill. And it’s also fantastic on top of a chicken sandwich. The sauce is definitely not just for jalapeno peach wings but it sure is mighty good on them!

Also try my ancho peach wings.

Heritage Fare Garlic Wings

Sometimes I make my own wing sauces, and sometimes I buy wing sauces from the local grocery store (or online). I love the variety. I recently picked up a bottle of Heritage Fare’s garlic wings sauce. Think Buffalo wing sauce, but with a really great garlic hit. Seriously, Heritage Fare garlic wings sauce is drink-it-out-of-the-bottle good.
Heritage Fare Garlic WingsOn the off chance that you have leftover wing sauce (be it Heritage Fare’s garlic wing sauce or any other brand), in most cases you’ll have to refrigerate it until you make your next batch of wings. When you do, make sure you warm it a bit before tossing it with your hot wings. You definitely don’t want to put a cold sauce over hot wings.

Heritage Fare also makes a darned good Buffalo wing sauce.

Copycat Quaker Steak and Lube Thai ‘R’ Cracker Wings

Whenever we are in the Cincinnati area we make a stop at Quaker Steak & Lube for wings. They have the best sauces and service around. Anita’s favorite sauce there is Thai ‘R’ Cracker, a somewhat sweet chili sauce. We also usually pick up a few bottles of sauce to take home. Those bottles don’t normally last long, so I decided to make a copycat of the sauce. Just like the original, this chili sauce-based mixture combines a bit of sweet and a bit of heat all with a slight Asian zing. It’s really, really good stuff. The kind of stuff that makes you want to lick your wings, which is borderline weird.
Copycat Quaker Steak and Lube Thai 'R' Cracker WingsThe secret to this copycat Thai ‘R’ Cracker sauce is in the chili sauces you choose. Both garlic and sweet chili sauces come in a lot of different variations, making it difficult to match the original taste exactly. I recommend getting a few bottles of each different sauce and mix them and try them to find the combination that you prefer. Our local grocery store had several different brands of each. You can also try your local Asian market for others.

Ingredients

  • 3-4 pounds chicken wings flats and drumettes separated, tips discarded or saved for making chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon freshly ground black pepper

For the sauce

  • 1/4 cup garlic chili sauce or more as desired
  • 1/2 cup sweet chili sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil I used a bit less than 1 teaspoon. You might want to start with 1/2 teaspoon and taste and add more if you desire. A little sesame oil goes a long ways.
  • 2 teaspoons grated ginger I substituted 1/2 teaspoon dried ground ginger
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce

Instructions

For the sauce

  • Combine all ingredients. Add more garlic chili sauce and sesame oil as desired.

Buffalo Sauce-Injected Wings

Oh how many thousands of wings have I eaten? I sure do love my wings. But you know, maybe a little something was missing. Once you get inside the wing, well, there’s just chicken. Good tasty moist chicken, sure. But no sauce. What if instead of tossing my wings with sauce I injected them with it instead? So I did. Buffalo sauce-injected wings are crazy good and fantastically different. Crispy skin on the outside with a burst of wing sauce in the middle. No lame wings here.
Buffalo Sauce-Injected Wings

I really enjoyed these Buffalo-sauce injected wings. It’s like I get the best of all the tastes. I get to enjoy my wing seasoning. None of it is diluted after the wing has been covered in sauce. And I get my wing sauce, and lots of it. I didn’t end up with a lake of sauce at the bottom of my plate. It was definitely a chicken wing win, and a real attention-getter at a party.

Of course, you don’t have to use just Buffalo wing sauce like I did. Any wing sauce will work, but you’ll want to try and use ones that are thin enough to make it through your injector. And don’t skimp on the injector either.

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Place wings in a large resealable baggie or container.
  • Add the oil and seasoning. Seal and toss to coat.
  • Refrigerate for 1 hour.
  • Insert an injector into the bottle of wing sauce and fill the injector. Alternatively, pour some of the sauce into a tall glass and fill the injector from it.
  • Insert the end of the needle into each wing and gently push down on the plunger to fill the wing with sauce. Slowly remove the needle and inject the remaining wings. Serve.

Notes

Note: If you are using leftover sauce that has been refrigerated make sure to heat it first. You do not want to inject cold liquid into hot wings.

TGI Fridays Buffalo Wings

I’ve always been a fan of Buffalo wings so I’m always up for trying an already-made Buffalo wing sauce, specially since there are so many different ones. I picked up a bottle of TGI Fridays Buffalo wing sauce and quickly got to making a batch of wings, this time using my Vortex insert on my Weber Jumbo Joe. This is not a thick Buffalo wing sauce, but instead it’s quite thin. A bottle goes a long, long ways. It’s a mild sauce so you get great Buffalo-style flavors but without a lot of spiciness. I would say it’s a good  standard Buffalo wing sauce, perfect for a crowd since you don’t have to worry about it being too hot.
TGI Fridays Buffalo WingsTGI Friday’s Buffalo wing sauce isn’t just great on wings, either. It makes for a perfect dipping sauce for chicken fingers or nuggets. If the sauce is too thin just warm it in a sauce pan. Then whisk in just a bit of flour. Not much, but just enough to thicken it up.

Rotisserie Chicken Wings

I have cooked my share of wings and then some. On my Char-Broil Big Easy. And on a smoker. Sometimes, on a charcoal grill using the Vortex BBQ. Deep fried. Slow cooked. Any way, any time, I do love wings. Heck, I even put together a free eCookbook full of wings, using homemade and store-bought sauces. But until now I had never cooked wings using a rotisserie basket on my grill. One thing is for sure, this is not the last time I’ll be doing it, either. Perfectly crispy wings cooked up in no time, using a gas or charcoal grill. Nothing but yumminess here!
Rotisserie Chicken WingsI coated the wings in a just a bit of oil first. Then I tossed them with my favorite wing seasoning. That’s it. For the rotisserie all you need is a super hot indirect fire. You don’t want flame directly beneath the wings as they will drip, and that’ll cause flare-ups and burning. So keep the fire around the wings, but not below and your wings will come out as great as mine did.

Resist the temptation to open the lid to your grill while the wings cook. But I have to admit, I peaked once or twice because hey, it’s cool to see wings toss around in a basket. It’s the ultimate in food porn.

Also try my super-easy rotisserie whole chicken.

Ingredients

  • 3-4 pounds  chicken wings flats and drumettes separated, tips discarded
  • 2 tablespoons 
    vegetable oil
  • Your favorite wing seasoning I used my Fire-Eater rub
  • Your favorite Buffalo wing sauce

Instructions

  • Place wings in a large resealable baggie or container. Add the oil and seasoning. Seal and toss to coat. Refrigerate for 1 hour.
  • Fire up your grill with a rotisserie attachment. You do not want any direct fire beneath the basket. I put a disposable pan under the basket to catch and drippings. On a charcoal grill you'll want to keep the lit coals in front of and behind the rotisserie. For a gas grill you want any burner(s) to the left and right of the basket to be lit if your burners run from-to-back. If your burners run from left-to-right you want to have the burner(s) in front of and behind the basket to be lit. If you have an infrared burner above your basket, light it also and turn it to medium-high. All other burners should be on high.
  • Transfer the wings to the basket and place on your grill. Turn on the rotisserie and close the lid. You want high heat, so no peaking. Let the wings cook for 20 minutes before checking them. They should start to crisp and the meat will start to pull back from the bones. Mine ended up taking 25-30 minutes until they got how I liked them.
  • Carefully remove the wings from the basket and sauce and serve.

Heritage Fare Buffalo Chicken Wing Sauce

This right here is one fantastic bottled Buffalo chicken wing sauce. Heritage Fare hit this one out of the park, big time. Just the right Buffalo flavor, just the right amount of heat. And just the right consistency, too. And that’s just as important as taste. Doesn’t matter how great tasting a sauce is if it all ends up at the bottom of a plate, and not on your wings!
Heritage Fare Buffalo Chicken Wing Sauce
I can’t recommend Heritage Fare Buffalo Chicken wing sauce enough. I loved it. Sure, you can make a Buffalo wing sauce at home easy enough, but you’re going to have a hard time beating the taste and convenience of it right out of the bottle.

This sauce also makes a great marinade for grilled chicken. It’s not just for wings! Heritage Fare also makes a darned good garlic wing sauce. Try it too!
