I’ve always been a fan of Carolina BBQ sauces. And although there are lots of variations from region-to-region, they all have vinegar in common. These Carolina wings packed that great vinegar punch, and then some. I found myself not able to get enough of the sauce on these wings. I’m quite sure I’ll end up using this exact recipe on more than wings.

These Carolina wings are a bit spicy, but they have the right amount of spiciness in my opinion. I like a little kick in just about everything I eat, but that doesn’t mean I need to be in pain and not able to taste my meal. The balance between the heat and sweetness is necessary, and the sauce on these wings has achieved that balance spot-on. It’s fantastic stuff.

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!
