Well, did you know that Duke’s has come out with Southern Sauces, that are FABULOUS?!!

And from someone who prefers to make her own sauces, these are the real deal yummy in my tummy.

You can order some up on their website, and have them shipped right to your doorstep!

Tips for Making Spicy BBQ Chicken Wings

How do I keep the wings crispy after coating with sauce?

Okay, that’s just part of eating a saucy coated chicken wing… they can get a little limp.

But! First, be sure to use a wire rack on your sheet pan, so air can flow around the wings. This will ensure that each side is crispy during baking, which will help keep that crunch after sauce time.

Can I use a different BBQ sauce?

Of course, you can! Use whatever you like, or what you have left in your fridge. It’s a great time to use up something you’ve already got!

Can I use a different kind of hot sauce?

Yep! Of course! While I love Chipotle Tabasco, use whichever you prefer… Or, if you don’t want them extra spicy, leave it out!

What about using Boneless Wings?

Sure! Go for it! You can also use chicken thighs or chicken breasts from the grill with this sauce combo.

So, while you’re making your chicken wings, fill up a platter!

Go ahead and make this an “all-in-one” meal, complete with fresh veggies and chips, that you can dip.

Set this on your table, in front of your couch, or wherever you’re having your couchgate!

For me, there is nothing better than wearing a t-shirt and some yoga pants and ‘watching’ (eating all the snacks…) the game. I’m really just there for the conversation with others and the snacks. 



Why not give these fun things a try for your next tailgating party?!
