A buffalo hot wing is a deep-fried chicken wing dipped in Louisiana hot sauce. We prepare the chicken wings on the grill as it should be because you are not a BBQ hero if you do otherwise.
We also make our own Louisiana hot sauce. It is one of the easiest hot sauces to make, making your hot buffalo wings unique.
Chicken wings are the perfect snack for your barbecue party
Cooking chicken wings on the grill is also one of the easiest jobs. Sprinkle the chicken wings with salt and pepper and leave them in the fridge for an hour or overnight if you have the time. The salt will draw moisture from the skin, making it dry and giving it a chance to get crispy on the grill.
After that, you throw them on the grill with an indirect temperature of 150ºC (302F) and close the lid. Halfway through, you turn them over, and after about an hour, you have wonderfully tender chicken wings with crispy skin. The grill does its job while you enjoy a beer with your guests. That’s why chicken wings are the perfect snack for your barbecue party.
When you turn the chicken wings, place a pan on the grates. Melt the butter in it and add the hot sauce. We made our our own Louisiana hot sauce, and of course, we wanted to try it.
Louisiana hot sauce is naturally sour, and we like these hot buffalo wings a little sweeter. That’s why we also add some agave syrup to the sauce. A little Worcestershire sauce is added to give the sauce a little barbecue flavour.
Now all you have to do is dunk the chicken wings in the sauce and serve them. Throwing another batch of chicken wings on the barbecue might be helpful. Your guests will be ready for more wings before you know it.
