Reader’s Recipes: Real “Buffalo” Style Wings

  • Author: Robyn


Full Wings marinated in:

  • Apple Cider Vinegar

Season heavily with:

  • Kosher Salt
  • Fresh chopped Garlic
  • Onion Powder
  • Cumin
  • Smoked Paprika

Buffalo Wing Sauce:

  • 3 parts- Vinegar based Cayenne Pepper Hot Sauce such as Bulliard’s or Frank’s (Avoid Tabasco as main wing sauce base, but can be used for additional flavor)
  • 2 parts- Butter or margarine.
  • Pinch garlic powder


  1. Marinade and season wings for at least 4 and up to 24 hours
  2. Sear wings over direct high flame 4-5 min. each side (gas or charcoal)
  3. Move all wings to one side under low flame, keep other burners stepped (middle) medium heat (left) high heat to maintain temp. Or a 2 zone charcoal fire keeping wings over low zone. Rotate wings for equal direct grill exposure. (Slow drip of marinade creates small controlled flare-ups to give another layer of flavor!)
  4. With wings almost completely cooked, place wings over high heat, flipping once to bring temperature up and to insure proper “BBQ Glow”
  5. Mop with a little seasoning (Chef’s choice) 3-1 apple juice – cider vinegar mixture. A dash of beer never hurts as it always seems handy.
  6. Toss with Buffalo Wing Sauce and enjoy
