Original Anchor Bar Buffalo Wing Sauce Hotter Recipe
Looks Like: About as uncharacteristic as you can get, ironic since Buffalo, NY’s Anchor Bar has long been heralded as ground zero for the wing frenzy. There’s an almost maroon appearance, and it’s thin enough to shake around like salad dressing. It can be off-putting, but it belies a great sauce.
Tastes Like: Vinegar fiends will be mighty pleased, and the acidity mingles with the cayenne concentrate to produce a Scotch bonnet–worthy punch. Yummy.
Heat Index: The Hotter isn’t terribly fiery, nor is it their most blazing offering (that honor would go to the Suicidal). You’re left with more of a garlic-vinegar sting than real singe, which isn’t necessarily bad.
Toss, Dip, or Marinade: Too thin for dipping, and a risk for losing emphasis while marinating, this one deserves to be tossed — with abandon.
How Much Blue Cheese Will I Need? As much or as little as you like. A good blue will only marry without overcoming the aforementioned vinegar might.
Any Other Good Accompaniment For It? Believe it or not, eggs, especially if there’s some sausage on the side.Back to top
