Legend Larry’s Raspberry Habanero Wings

I have been more than pleased with the wing sauces from Legend Larry’s. I’ve never been to the actual restaurants, but if their bottled sauces are any indication of how good the food is, I’m going. And soon. Legend Larry’s Raspberry Habanero sauce is crazy good. You get a wonderful light raspberry flavor. Perfect. Then comes the heat. And it comes, too. Definitely spicy, but not so hot that you lose the sweet raspberry flavor. It’s the right amount of kick.
Legend Larry's Raspberry Habanero WingsLegend Larry’s Raspberry Habanero wings sauce is fantastic on wings. It’d also be great on smoked ribs, pulled pork, or roasted chicken for that matter. I’m all about the wings, though, and this sauce really hit all the right notes on a batch of wings I cooked up for lunch.

Also try Legend Larry’s Hot Garlic Wings and the over-the-top great Bacon BBQ wings.

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.

Quaker Steak and Lube Smoked Jalapeno Honey Wings

I love to make my own wing sauces, but I have to admit, I’m a sucker for bottled sauces too. Specially when they’re as good as the Smoked Jalapeno Honey wing sauce from Quaker Steak and Lube. Anita I had lunch at a Quaker Steak and Lube on the north side of Cincinnati.

I enjoyed a big ole helping of their fantastic wings tossed in just the right amount of Smoked Jalapeno Honey sauce. And yes, after one bite I decided I was going home with a bottle of the sauce for my homemade wings. Just the right amount of heat and sweet, with a little light smokiness, this sauce is very tasty and not spicy enough to scare off your I-don’t-like-spicy friends.
Quaker Steak and Lube Smoked Jalapeno Honey WingsI would say that I on occasion have a good number of wing sauce bottles on hand. That used to worry me, but honestly, I eat wings so often that they don’t last very long at all. Specially when they are as good as the Smoked Jalapeno Honey wing sauce from Quaker Steak and Lube. I wish they had a restaurant here in Indy. I do love their wings (though they certainly serve a lot more than wings).

I also love Quaker Steak and Lube’s Louisiana Lickers and Arizona Ranch wing sauces.

Dr Pepper Hot Wings

Not long ago I made some wonderful BBQ sauce made with Dr. Pepper. That got me thinking about how I could use Dr. Pepper with my favorite thing, chicken wings.  And here they are, in all of their glory. Slightly sweet, slightly spicy, and oh-so-sticky good. The Dr. Pepper flavor isn’t real strong, but it’s there. The balance is perfect. These Dr Pepper hot wings are some mighty tasty wings.
Dr Pepper Hot WingsMake sure you reduce the sauce when you make these Dr Pepper hot wings. The cornstarch is optional, depending on how thick you like your sauce, but for me it wasn’t so optional. I like the sauce to stick to my wings. I don’t like a lake of sauce in the bottom of my plate while my wings are dry as a bone.
