Bourbon Street sauce has quickly become the go-to sauce in our house. It’s a very easy sauce to make, using ingredients I always have on hand. I put it on a lot of dishes, like these outstanding Bourbon Street wings. The sauce has a hint of Bourbon, with a little sweetness, and a little heat. Everything you want in a sauce.

Bourbon Street Wings

I make chicken wings in a variety of ways, from deep-fried, to cooked in my Char-Broil Big Easy, to grilled. I recently picked up a Vortex, an insert for your charcoal grill that really concentrates the heat, which makes it possible to make crispy, tasty wings on a grill. What a great invention!

I tossed a family pack (3 or 4 pounds) of wings with a little oil and our Fire-Eater rub and let them ‘get happy’ while I lit up the charcoal. Then the wings went onto the grill, while I made up a batch of Bourbon Street sauce. In less than an hour we were enjoying Bourbon Street wings, and moaning in delight over just how great they were.

I store my leftover homemade sauces in squeeze bottles. If refrigerated, I set them out an hour before using so they come to room temperature. You don’t want to put cold sauce on hot wings!
