I’ve been contemplating how I would start this post for two days now. Not because I was searching for what to write, but because any time I started thinking about these Torchbearer Chipotle Fried Chicken wings I got hungry and had to go make something to eat.
We were in Gatlinburg, TN, not too long ago. I stopped in to All Sauced Up, a little gourmet grocery store (full of nice folk) on main (Parkway) street in downtown Gatlinburg. I grabbed two bottles of wing sauce from Torchbearer Sauces, one of spicy chipotle and one of buffalo wing. One thing I noticed was that both sauces were made from stuff I wouldn’t expect in a wing sauce, like mandarin oranges. Say what?
Well, say hello to absolutely unbelievably good. I coated these wings with the spicy chipotle sauce. Yep, its spicy. It’s got some of the best heat I’ve had. Not in-your-face-crying-tears-of-sadness heat, but good heat with fantastic flavor. The sauce comes out thick and sticks to your wings. It doesn’t roll off and create a sauce lake in your plate (or basket). It’s just spot-on great sauce.
I could not get enough of these wings. I coated them first and then deep fried them. Tossed them in Torchbearer sauce and chowed down. Get you some of this sauce. You will not be sorry. At all. Oh, and the Torchbearer web site also recommends using this sauce on pork chops and in stir fry. You don’t get that from any ole normal wing sauce.
Torchbearer Chipotle Wings

- Working in batches, cook wings using the Deep Fryer method. Click here for our guide on cooking wings in a grill, smoker, deep fryer, oven, or a Char-Broil Big Easy.
