Adventure in Hot wings

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I picked up some wings from The Wing Coop: Home Page for game night last night. I normally get the spicy garlic sauce which isn't super hot, but pleasantly so for my taste. But many of my friends are big chile-heads so I got a few wings bathed in the sauce called "eleven" and the rest in the honey-habanero sauce, their most popular sauce.

Hottest thing I've ever eaten. I downed 1 wing, my eyes water, my lips burned and it just got worse. Lasted about 15-20 minutes. Among my friends, one took one bite and started burping and suffering even more than I did and he usually likes things hotter than I do. He only took the one bite. Another friend started eating one of these elevens and got the hiccups from the heat. He cleaned up (washed his hands) and then rubbed his watering eyes. MISTAKE! Still another, one of the truest of chile heads snarfed one down. He gobbled it right down, declaring it delicious but hot. No apparent stress from eating it. Claimed he would eat another one later on but didn't. One friend abstained totally. Another tried to abstain, but saw the carrots and celery underneath the wings. They had no visible sauce on them but what could soak through a plastic coated paper wrap. And that lit her up. She promptly threw out the rest of the vegies. Normally, she's very timid about heat, but loved the honey-habanero wings.

The Honey habanero wings were very good. More heat than sweet buit I'll stick with the spicy garlic in the future. While the spicy garlic is rated as less hot, it feels hotter to me as it lacks the honey to offset the heat as much.

Good wings, probably the best in my area.

your "self proclaimed chili-head" friends should know better than to wipe their eyes even after washing their hands! :eek:

the wings sound great though!

I love wings that burn twice ;)

He had washed his hands, but still should have known better.

I enjoy hot wings. For me it's not "how hot can you make them" that flies

I enjoy hot, real hot but not so hot that all you get is pain and no taste. Gotta have taste. Actually a wing that I can eat and have the heat sneak up on me is about the best. That way, IMO, you enjoy the flavor before your taste buds are scortched. Trouble is when things are that hot there is that delayed reminder as well.:suprise: :eek:No Thanks.:rolleyes:

I love hot wings but Teriyaki wings are the best in my opinion.

For hot wings my favorite is still the original, Franks hot sauce and butter.

love hotwings.....picked up 8# of jumbo whole wings last Sat. at the farmer's market. Decided to bake instead of fry, took off end for stock the sprinkled them with:
salt/pepper/chipotle.....baked for approx 45 minutes, slathered on ketchup with hot sauce and baked for another 20ish minutes. Made blue cheese dip with crema, chevre blue, port balsamic, dillweed, blk. pepper....
Ran out of BBQ sauce/rub just went with what was around and not alot of fuss. Pretty darn good.

Franks, cider vinager, butter, garlic work well too.....fry, sauce, bake.

I'm with oldschool.....hot crawfish, shrimp, etc have to be edible and pain is not a desired aftereffect.....not into masochist exercises.

One client did challenge me (several years ago).....heat wise, so I put habeneros, dried birds chilis, Dave's insanity etc in the enchilada....he sweated, said I won.....whoopee....always giving the caveat that at a certain point I don't taste the product.:eek:

Mmm I love hot wings! I usually go to Wing Stop, I'm not sure if you all have them where you live but their wings are really good. I usually go for the Lemon Pepper and the Original Hot. Their fries are also awesome. The are made with sugar and salt and a tad bit of pepper. Yummy!:D

I like Atomic, Cajun and Garlic-Parmesan. Atomic if I'm eating wings on my own, the others if there's company. I had Atomic once and there was some kind of glitch. For some reason, instead of the usual Atomic, which is plenty zesty, the sauce was minced habaneros. I ate it, but only because I'm not very bright. SWMBO is not a wing fan, and gets Hawaiian Barbecue from the take-out in the same center.

I like hot stuff and I'm glad I can eat enough habanero to taste the flavor and not just the heat. I nibble on plain fresh jalapenos because they taste really good.

But there comes a point where it's ridiculous, like a frat party dare. I'm not into that.
