Winger’s Original Buffalo Wings Sauce

I deep fried some wings tonight for dinner. I found a recipe on the web for Winger’s Original Buffalo Wings Sauce. The recipe I used was not correct though. It called for 2 1/2 cups of brown sugar. It was more like carameled wings then buffalo wings. Pretty bad really. I have put a corrected version below so I will not make that mistake again.

1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
3 tablespoons light corn syrup
1/3 cup Frank’s Red Hot pepper sauce
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup hot water

Place brown sugar and corn syrup in medium saucepan and melt over medium heat until boiling. Cook for 3 minutes, stirring constantly or it will burn. Add hot water, pepper sauce and vinegar. Stir all ingredients together well and continue cooking at a low boil, stirring often until mixture has reduced to a syrupy consistency (about 15 minutes). The sauce will thicken considerably as it cools. You can adjust the amounts of Frank’s Red Hot and water to get the right amount of spice for your taste. Some people like only Hot sauce and no water.

Still sounds way too sweet for me! I just use 1 stick butter, 3 tbsp soy sauce, 1 tbsp texas pete (depending on the heat you like), and just enough brown sugar to slightly sweeten the sauce and then thicken it with cornstarch. Trust me this is worth the try. Everyone says my wings are better than the restaurants. I don't bother deep frying my wings either, I just bake them until they are done and then toss them in the sauce.
