    Wings should be spicy and I thought this recipe was great!
    I tried making this recipe exactly and it didnt work out as planned. However, I took the basics and made a larger batch and tweeked a few things. The amount of hot sauce in the recipe is way too much and too hot to eat for me and my family. So, I blended some smoked tomatoes from my BBQ pit into the hot sauce blend.
     
    I made this recipe at 2 1/2 times the amount of things listed in the recipe.
     

     
    I used:
     
    5 tbsp - flour
     
    6 1/4 oz. - butter
     
    5 cups - smoked tomatoes (pureed)
     
    1 1/4 cup - Lousiana Hot Sauce (add 1 squeezed lime juice to tomatoes)
     
    2 1/2 tbsp - minced garlic
     
    3 1/4 tbsp - red wine vinegar
     

     
    I kept the times the same and kept the heat medium-low (about 4 1/2 on my electric stovetop).
     
    While leting the finished product thicken on the stove, I added 5 cups of 100% orange juice from concentrate to the mix.
     
    They came out totally awesome and very heat tolerant!
     

     
    I allowed the final product to stay on the stove heat on low for about 15 minutes and everything turned out perfect!
    "Frank's" is a Louisiana Hot Sauce. I don't believe it has ever been made in western NY. I know for sure that it was started in Louisiana. Also to my knowledge a Louisiana hot sauce is just a blend of cayenne pepper/ hot peppers vinegar and salt that has a mild heat. (As opposed to like a much hotter tabasco, or habanero sauce). I thought this sauce was pretty tasty, some tough critics out there.
    Yuk! You might as well pour the Louisiana hot sauce right over the chicken without going through the trouble of cooking it with flour ect. it would taste the same. YUK!
    fantastic tasting quick easy ...you can control the thickness of the sauce...the thicker the better for me....thanks
    I tried this two ways...
     

     
    1. As a sauce over the top of cooked wings, it was terrible.
     

     
    but...
     

     
    2. I baked wings that had been tossed with the sauce, much better.
    I HATED THIS RECIPE HOW CAN YOU USE LOUISIANA ON WINGS ??? USE FRANKS RED HOT I DO NOT THINK I WILL EVER MAKE THIS AGAIN
    yummy
    How are you going to make Buffalo chicken wing sauce with a Louisianna hot sauce? The only hot sauce that should be used is only made in Buffalo NY. It's called Frank's red hot sauce. Anything else is just yucky chicken wing sauce. Get a clue!!!!!!
