True story. Goldilocks and the Three Bears was originally written about Nashville hot wing sauces! It’s right there in the book: “Goldilocks moved to the third plate of wings, with Sweet Baby Ray’s Nashville hot wings sauce, and took a bite. “It is just right!” And before she knew it, the wings were all gone. And she was right, this is a great sauce. I knew that any sauce from SBR would have the perfect balance of flavor and heat. There are a lot of Nashville-inspired wing and BBQ sauces out there, but this one ranks way, way up at the top. Get yourself soon before the bears find out about it!
Sweet Baby Ray’s Nashville Hot Wings sauce has a bit of a kick, but it’s definitely not a 4-alarm fire sauce. If you’re looking for a crazy hot Nashville chicken experience, you’ll get that classic flavor here but without the mouth-burning heat.
I’m a big fan of Nashville hot chicken. I make it often, varying the amount of heat to suit my fancy that day. I was excited to try a bottled sauce with the same flavors: Buffalo Wild Wings Nashville Hot wings sauce! This sauce is tasty, with a hint of smokiness. It’s spicy, but I wouldn’t call it crazy spicy by any means. I’d say it’s just over medium hot…. ish. It reminds me of the real thing but without all the oil.
Sometimes I sauce my wings lightly. Sometimes I’m pretty liberal with the sauce. Buffalo Wild Wings Nashville Hot wings sauce is one I definitely go heavy with. I really liked the somewhat earthy, chili flavor and spicy kick. It’s a nice enjoyable sauce that’s different from many of the sauces on the market these days.
