    For both flavor and it helps to bind the sauce to the wings. The same principal as to why arteries get blocked. Actually, I've found that margerine works better. It's the only thing I use margerine for.

      Are you kidding? Mix some melted butter and Frank's Hot Sauce. Saturate your chicken wings with that, and you will be in wing heaven, LOL.

          I use the butter/Crystal combination with the addition of a healthy dose of this stuff. Give it a try. pb

                Years ago I called the Anchor Bar to find out exactly what they used, and they told me "Durkee's Hot Sauce"

                  As I understand it Frank's and Durkee's is the same as Hellman's and Best Foods.

                  (But, I'll check up on that to be sure.)

                    I first started using what is now called Frank's Red Hot sauce in the early nineties. At that time it was called Durkee's Red Hot. I think the product was originally called Frank's Red Hot, then was Durkee's Red Hot, and then changed back to Frank's Red Hot in the mid to late 90s.

                      Texas Pete is very good also.I make wings by going straight from the fryer to a Big bowl with melted butter and a little sugar. Then to the Texas pete of Red Hot

                        I use Frank's hot sauce,butter, a little vinegar, then add about two tablespoons of Asian chili garlic sauce. Not too hot, not too sweet, just right. Came across this by accident when I ran out of Frank's and only had enough for half the batch of sauce. Maggi makes a good sauce, I can find it in Kroger.

                          I went to school in Buffalo, and a local gave me her recipe for wings, which I have stuck with.

                          Basicly, it is 4:1:4 ratio of hot sauce, white vinegar, and butter. I have always found Frank's to have an odd, stale taste (which you can detect in the Anchor Bar wing sauce). I prefer Crystal, or Trappey's Bull.

                          Your taste may vary.

                            butter helps to bind it to the chicken.
                            12oz franks, 1 stick butter and 1 oz tobasco will make the standard Buffalo wing (hot). "Fire" is 2 oz tobasco. Med is 1/2 oz, mild uses no tobasco.

                            This is more or less the Buffalo recipe, which comes from growing up in CNY/WNY, my buffalo family and friends, et al.

                            Margarine will make it watery.

                              Score, I do close to what you said but use 2 cups LA sauce to 1 stick of butter.

                              I cook legs and breasts in it also. Then I serve it, with the juice, over white rice. Weird I know but my family all likes it. It's one of the few things I cook that they will all eat.

                                 I know it's not traditional, but Cholula is very good on wings. They have a tasty recipe on their website. I make a large batch and take it to work. They're gobbled up in no time.

                                  I do not use butter as I find it a little too greasey for our tastes.

                                    Another "side effect" of the butter is that it reduces the heat from the hot sauce.  Pepper capsicum is fat soluble.  The butter helps the heat in your mouth dissipate faster.

                                    In general, not necessarily for wings, I like Crystal much better than Frank's.  I'd also buy Texas Pete before I drop good money on Frank's.

                                      Always been a Frank's man ever since my first trip to the Anchor Bar 20 years ago, prefer it to Crystal, Texas Pete's and Tabasco, but hey that's my taste, great on eggs every morning, 6yr old daughter loves it on her eggs too, and wings of course, raising her right.

                                      Franks & Durkee's is the same sauce, name just changed with corporate take-overs

                                        Frank's & butter - that's how I learned to make wing sauce working in restaurants in the Falls in high school & college, and I still think this makes the best wing sauce.

                                          I'm a Crystal's hot Sauce man myself Jay, never did like Frank's and will use Texas Pete in a pinch. I tend to like to add a little sweet to my heat.

                                          Lately though I have been doing something different though. I use my traditional Eastern NC vinegar based sauce, add a dash of ketchup just to turn the color of it and start dip the wings in this modified vinegar sauce when they are half way done. After 2 dips I cut my heat back some and continue to cook until super tender. The wife and our friends swear by them.

                                            Frank's is super and Crystal is an excellent standby.  Texas Pete goes in the trash.

                                                  I bought the Anchor Bar wing sauce once (we have it in stores locally), and didn't care for it. I like to use half Franks, half Tapatio, and butter.

                                                    We used margarine, Frank's Hot Sauce and dry seasonings; garlic powder, onion powder, thyme, pepper, basil and oregano.  But no matter how much Franks we added, it was never hot enough for our customers.

                                                    So we started cooking the sauce and adding a pepper mash of red dried Chinese peppers that we'd put through the blender with the seeds.  We cooked it and strained the peppers and that became our medium sauce.  

                                                    Our hot sauce had the pepper mash added back into it.  I don't know how people ate it, but they loved it.  Still there were those who still said that wasn't hot enough! 
                                                     
                                                    Never used habeneros.  I don't know if there is anything hotter.  But, the guy on the Travel Channel did a show where he was really sweating!  Great show!

                                                      For hot wings, I'll stick with the original idea:  Franks and butter.  One thing that may help those who think butter makes for a greasy result is to use a higher quality butter.  There are some store brands (and a lot of butter in restaurants) that are not worth the trouble.  Margarine is then comparable or even better.  For those where they are available, Land O Lakes and Costco's Kirtland butters are both good.   Always use an unsalted butter.  Add salt if you want, but don't depend on the butter for that job.
                                                       
                                                      I like most of the hot sauces named above for other uses and have tried them at one time or another.  Generally I ask for "what ever is handy" if hot sauce is not on the table.  Tabasco is always welcome, a standard, but I guess many places cut corners with some of the others.  Franks would be welcome also but I don't see it as often.  Ditto for the Siracha, whick generally I see only in Thai places and Cholula which is genrally limited to Mexican places. 
                                                       
                                                      One thing, if you want to season the chicken in the hot wings, and not just make for a more piquant sauce, season the chicken before cooking,  Trying to add salt or pepper after is never so effective.

                                                            Ingredients:

                                                            1.5kg chicken wings (about 16 wings)
                                                            salt and black pepper, to taste
                                                            360ml barbecue sauce
                                                            60ml runny honey
                                                            2 tsp prepared English mustard
                                                            2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
                                                            Tabasco sauce, to taste

                                                            Chicken Wings in Barbecue Sauce Preparation:

                                                            Method: Wash the chicken and pat dry then cut off the wing tips (either discard or keep to make chicken stock). Now cut each wing at the joint to make tow sections then season all the wing parts with salt and pepper. Place the wings on a grill pan and grill on medium heat for about 20 minutes (10 minutes per side) or until the chicken is brown.
                                                            Transfer the coloured chicken pieces to a [style="color: blue ! important; font-family: georgia,divona,bitstream charter,john baskerville,baskerville; font-weight: 400; font-size: 12px; position: static;"]slow cooker (crockpot). Whisk together all the remaining ingredients in a bowl to combine then pour over the chicken wings. Cover and cook on low for about 5 hours (or on high for 2 hours). Serve hot as an appetizer or with beer or a barbecue.
