Stubb’s Wicked Habanero Pepper Wing Sauce
Looks Like: Liquefied BBQ sauce teeming with cracked black pepper.
Tastes Like: Peppery in the best way possible (i.e. its habaneros and paprika come across more buoyant than blunt), with no lack of tomato-y softness to round it out.
Heat Index: Just because it’s thinner than your average wing sauce doesn’t mean it can’t start a gourmand flame war. In other words: somewhere a tick above medium (nothing that’ll singe the roof of your mouth), but spicy in the purest sense.
Toss, Dip, or Marinade: Stubb’s Wicked makes a terrific, unconventional marinade that should please traditional buffalo acolytes and those who skew toward sweeter iterations.
How Much Blue Cheese Will I Need? Not necessary here, though if ritual commands, go forth.
Any Other Good Accompaniment For It? This is probably the most versatile offering in its class, good for any fish, mammal, or fowl on the grill or a good overnight subsuming in the fridge. A refreshing light beer to wash it down wouldn’t hurt, either.Back to top
