What an enjoyable experience it is, sitting down to a big ole batch of wings covered in Plucker’s Jamango Jerk wing sauce. Kind of like a Caribbean BBQ sauce, you get mild mango flavor, a little heat, and just the right amount of jerk seasoning flavor. That’s important for me because jerk seasoning, when applied heavily, can be a bit much for me because of the allspice. This sauce has just the perfect amount.
Plucker’s Jamango Jerk wings sauce is another one of my top favorite sauces. But it’s not just for wings, that’s for sure. It’s fantastic slathered on grilled chicken. And absolutely great on smoked ribs. Anywhere you normally might use a store-bought BBQ sauce, use this wing sauce instead.
This here is proof positive that you should not poo-poo grocery store-brand wing sauces. You might want to grab that $8 bottle, but believe me you don’t have to spend that much to get a mighty good wing sauce. The Great Value Caribbean Jerk wing sauce has just the right amount of Jamaican-inspired flavors. And just the right amount of heat, too.
The Caribbean Jerk wing sauce from Great Value isn’t too thick and it isn’t too thin. Neither of those would be good things. It’ll stick to your wings but it’s not so thick as to be gloppy. I really liked the consistency. But I liked the spiciness even more. Just the right amount of allspice, something I watch out for in Jerk seasoning. Too much can be … too much!
Hurray! Another great wing sauce from Meijer! Boy oh boy have I been happy with all of their sauces, and this Caribbean Jerk wing sauce is definitely no exception. It packs the allspice, the cinnamon, and oh yes, plenty of heat, into every single bite. For me, sometimes jerk seasoning or sauces can be a bit too heavy on the allspice. Not the case, here. It’s the perfect blend of flavors.
I don’t like to overly season my wings before cooking them, specially if I’m using a fantastic sauce like Meijer’s Caribbean Jerk sauce. I don’t want the spices to fight with the sauce, so I go simple: salt and pepper.
