I was cruisin’ down I-70 near Springfield, Ohio, when the lunch time hungers started to hit. I took a quick glance at the map (which is always set to show nearby wing restaurants) and saw a Fricker’s. Since I’ve never been to one, I figured well heck, now’s the time! So I went on in, grabbed a seat, and ordered some wings. Long story short, I left the place full and with a sack full of Fricker’s wing sauces. That way I could enjoy the same flavors at home, starting with Fricker’s BBQ wings.
Fricker’s BBQ wings have a slight smoky flavor with just a hint of heat. It’s a thinner tomato-based sauce with a slight sweetness to it. At first I thought it was pretty much your standard BBQ-like sauce. But it really grew on me. A lot. And now I wish I’d bought more.
The sauce comes in glass bottles (yes!) and they have 4 of their signature flavors available online and in the stores. You can get any of their sauces in the restaurant to go, too. They’ll make them up for you fresh and package them in Mason jars. They’re very reasonably priced. And hey, you get a Mason jar to boot!
June Moon Sweet-n-Spicy wings are a little different. In a good way, too. The sauce is a little bit tomato-BBQ-sauce-like. A little sweet with a little tang, a little kick, that makes it different. It’s not thick or too thin. This is a good sauce that you can serve to your friends without worrying about scorching their tongues or making their taste buds fall asleep.
I picked up a big ole variety pack of sauces off of Amazon. This June Moon Sweet-n-Spicy wings sauce was just one of the great sauces that arrived. If you want a big huge variety of sauces for wings and more, grab a box and get to cooking! You won’t be disappointed in the flavors, variety or quality!
If I am serving my wings with Ranch or blue cheese or some other sauce, I use these little sauce dipping cups. They’re the perfect size for dipping wings, nuggets, tenders and even vegetables. And they’re easy to clean, too!
It’s not unusual for me to open some wing sauce, make a batch or two of wings with it, and put the half-full bottle back into the fridge for wings for some later day. Well, I made some Wing It Sweet ‘N Tangy wings and let me tell you, the bottle is getting finished before I move on. This sauce is so dang good no way do I want it sitting around. It’d be rude. Sweet thanks to molasses, tangy thanks to mustard and vinegary, this sauce seems BBQ-like but with so many twists and turns that it’s definitely different and outrageously good. This is easily one of my favorite sauces of any kind.
These Wing It Sweet ‘N Tangy wings had a slight hint of heat to them. Not much. And a little Asian-inspiration from soy sauce. Yep, all sorts of things went into this sauce and they all work together perfectly. I so regret not ordering more of this sauce because it will be fantastic on roasted chicken and smoked ribs. Well, time to remedy that and order some more!
It’s rare when my wife says that she really loves a wing sauce. Her tastes are pretty picky (nothing wrong with that!), whereas mine run from the hot to the sweet and anything in between. These pepper jelly barbecue wings made us both very happy. They aren’t very spicy. They aren’t very sweet. They’re just right. And definitely finger-licking good.
I’m not quite sure when a barbecue sauce becomes a wing sauce. Maybe it’s just a simple matter of putting it on wings and boom! It’s a wing sauce! I brushed the wings with the pepper jelly barbecue wing sauce just before they were done. That gave the sauce some time to set up on the wings. You could just as easily tossed the wings in the sauce instead.
I know some folks aren’t fans of liquid smoke. This sauce is much better with it. If you don’t want to use it, just add some adobo sauce (from a can of chipotles). That’ll add a bit of heat too.
House of Wings BBQ Wing Sauce is what a wing sauce should be. The perfect balance of traditional Buffalo wing flavors with a hint of BBQ sauce, I could eat these wings all day long. This is the kind of sauce that’ll satisfy everyone from the hard-core wing aficionado to the I-only-eat-wings-during-the-Superbowl guy.
I picked up a few bottles of each of the flavors from Alliger’s House of Wings. When they arrived I thought to myself “yowsa, that’s a lot of wing sauce”. Now that I’ve been enjoying them I realize that there’s no such thing as having too many on hand. House of Wings BBQ wing sauce is just one example of pure wing sauce greatness.
Also try some Garlic-Q wings made with Alliger’s House of Wings sauces.
