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.

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 Louisiana Lickers Sauce

If you’re gonna name a wing sauce ‘Louisiana Lickers’, I’m going to buy it. And so I did the last time we were in Cincinnati while shopping at Jungle Jim’s. I picked up a few bottles of Quaker Steak and Lube’s wing sauces, including one of Louisiana Lickers. I never need an excuse to fire up my Big Easy Wingin’ator 3000 for some wings, so this was a no-brainer. If you don’t have a Char-Broil The Big Easy TRU-Infrared Oil-less Turkey Fryer, just bake the wings or grill them. No matter how you cook them, you’ll love wings tossed in Quaker Steak and Lube Louisiana Lickers Sauce!Quaker Steak and Lube Louisiana Lickers Sauce

I really like the Louisiana Lickers sauce. It is spicy, but definitely not overly spicy. It’s different, almost Jamaican jerkish (somewhat citrusy) in flavor to me. The Cajun flavor lingers, with just a bit of burn. It’s addicting, like all of the Quaker Steak & Lube sauces (see them all here).

I cooked these wings up my standard way. An hour or so in my marinade and then onto the Big Easy for a little over an hour. Tossed with the sauce of choice and served with quality Ranch dressing and our homemade wing dipping sauce.

I also love Quaker Steak and Lube’s Golden Garlic and Arizona Ranch wing sauces.

Instructions

  • Prepare the wings by cutting off the tips and separating the flats and drumettes.
  • Divide the wing pieces into two large baggies. Add a batch of the wing marinade to each. Seal and gently shake to coat. Refrigerate for at least an hour, tossing every once-in-a-while.
  • While the wings cool, warm about 1/2 cup of the wing sauce.
  • Add the wings to a large bowl, drizzle with sauce and toss to coat. If you like more sauce, make sure you warm it a bit before adding.
  • Serve with dipping sauces.

I was worried that for $5-$6, the sauce was over-priced, but I was pleasantly surprised to find that that isn’t the case. For the number of wings I made I used only a little sauce, without sacrificing flavor. And the sauce sticks to the wings. Not gloppy, molasses sticky, but just sticky enough to not run off and form a puddle. I liked that. A lot.

I gave the Louisiana Lickers sauce high ratings on the ‘Mater Rater.

Quaker Steak and Lube Golden Garlic Sauce

I picked up a few bottles of Quaker Steak and Lube wing sauces the last time we were at Jungle Jim’s in Cincinnati, including their Golden Garlic Sauce. I was anxious to fire up my Big Easy Wingin’ator 3000 with some wings. If you don’t have a Char-Broil The Big Easy TRU-Infrared Oil-less Turkey Fryer, just bake or grill the wings until done. The Quaker Steak and Lube Golden Garlic Sauce is the star of this show but don’t skimp on the wings either.Quaker Steak and Lube Golden Garlic Sauce

I really like the Quaker Steak and Lube Golden Garlic sauce. It is definitely garlicky. You won’t bite into a wing and think to yourself “I thought this was supposed to have garlic in it.” It brings the garlic. Look at the picture above. You can see how the Golden Garlic stacks up heat-wise to the other yummy Quaker Steak & Lube sauces here.

I cooked these wings up my standard way. An hour or so in my marinade and then onto the Big Easy for another hour or so. Tossed with the sauce of choice and served with quality Ranch dressing and our homemade wing dipping sauce.

I also love Quaker Steak and Lube’s Louisiana LickersArizona Ranch and Smoked Jalapeno Honey wing sauces.

I gave the Golden Garlic sauce high ratings on the ‘Mater Rater. You’ll have to really love garlic to truly enjoy these. Garlic is what you’ll get and not a lot else. For me, that’s just fine.
