The wings are terrific, don't get me wrong, but I think this recipe is more about the method than the ingredients. Having to satisfy multiple taste buds, including children of 9 and 15 yrs, I decided to make several different sauces. The first, was the recipe as written, minus the cayenne pepper. next was Heinz 57 in place of the hot sauce, and last was Sweet Baby Rays original in place of the hot sauce. By a unanimous decision the Sweet Baby Rays won hands down. The recipe as written, minus the cayenne, is not overly hot, and is nice for a football game or backyard partying, but it just doesn't appeal to everyone's palate. A little Ranch dressing on the side for dipping tempered the heat for those that were on the bubble. The Heinz 57 just didn't show up, it wasn't hot or sweet, and not "zesty" as the label suggested. Everyone enjoyed the sweet baby rays, regardless of whether they were "heat" fans or not. For those that have concerns about moving the chicken in and out of the sauces, the sauces are constantly simmering, so I don't think there is much need for concern. This is not a recipe that you throw in the oven and check back on it in an hour. It requires actively working the barbecue for almost one hour, but it is worth the effort. I will make the recipe as written, minus the cayenne, and the Sweet baby rays in the future. Something for everyone to enjoy.
