Just wanted to note that the original sauce made at Anchor Bar in Buffalo, NY (hence the term "Buffalo Wings"), featured the addition of 1 tsp. of white vinegar to 1/4 cup of butter to 2-5 tsp. Louisiana Hot Sauce.

I don't know if this has already been suggested (I haven't read all of the reviews), but for a more authentic-tasting sauce, use a combination of hot sauce (Louisiana hot sauce) and tabasco sauce.

I have used this recipe for years and I love it. I do add vinegar to taste, as was suggested in another review, I think it adds alot to the flavor. I see alot of people saying it is too hot for kids, here's a solution...add more butter or less hot sauce. Sometimes I want super-hot myself and dump in some tobasco or crushed red pepper too.

Well this is good. But I perfer the thicker sauce in a deeper color.

A little thin, any suggestions to make it thicker? (Cornstarch didn't work out so well...)

I made this for my husbands fantasy football draft and put it on chicken wings. Some of the wings were fried and some were baked. Everyone liked them but i think that it was missing that zing you get with the restaurant type. That is what i was trying to get. I think next time i will add the vinegar as stated by other reviews and see if that will help it. I will make this again to try to make it REALLY work for me.

This is a milder version than some recipes I have seen, but it is easy to adjust the amount of butter and hot sauce to meet your tastes.
