No need to stray to far from the classic. Buy Frank's Red Hot. Follow recipe on bottle. All you need is butter. Perfection.

BTW, I deep fry the wings first so they are nice and crispy and the slosh the Franks/butter combo on them.

Just buy the Frank's Buffalo Wing sauce, probably more expensive than making it w/ Frank's + butter, but less work and it's yummy.

frank's red hot
I usually don't bother with the butter, and usually bake the wings with a little sauce on them then put them in a covered pot with more sauce and shake them

My problem with making them at home, is they end up soggy. I deep fry them until they are cooked, and toss them in the Franks/butter combo.

Should I be over cooking them before tossing?

Pick up some of the medium sauce from Buffalo Wild Wings

They have the best sauces I've ever had on wings

Sorry I don't have a recipe!

This may be a lot of work but here's how I cook mine: slow roast in a low oven, say 300 degrees until all the fat has melted away. Then, I crank up the broiler or take them out to the grill and crisp up the skin, then, toss in the butter and Franks.

My wing sauce has lots of tasty (and at this point unnameable) ingredients. It is a continuous sauce that dates back to around 1985. (I just add more stuff to the remains and re-simmer after each use!)

It's mostly Franks or another red hot sauce, some butter, plus other random hot sauces in lesser quantities. I periodically add some tomato paste (not too much) which really thickens it. And some brown sugar makes a tasty ingredient. Other minor additions over the years have been mustard, crushed peppers, olive oil, italian seaonings, etc.

Also, as noted above, a great way to make them is to grill them until they are just getting crispy and a bit black on the outside. Then shake them up in a large container with hot sauce. The grilled flavor blends with the sauce to make an awesome wing! I never bother trying to deep fry them anymore.

of course, now that I'm in NYC and a grill isn't handy, I just head over to Scruffy McDuffy's, 8th Ave at 46th. Best wings in town by a huge margin. (Makes wings from Atomic, Pluck U, Blondies, Off the Wagon, etc. pale in comparison.)
