Frank's hot sauce?

I have heard so much about Franks hot sauce and tried to find it here in northern MN with no luck. Must be sold only in the southern parts. We were just to MO and AK and we didn't have the time to check out the grocery stores there.Is it a great sauce?

I don't think it's Southern - we got it in Buffalo - I think it's the 'original' sauce used for Buffalo wings. No, not anything particularly spectacular, just a good medium-hot, clean tasting sauce.

Maybe I will just go to the grocery store here and request it and see if they can get it. No harm in trying. I really like a good hot sauce.

good description marmalady. medium heat, vinegar-y, not like tobasco. it is great on wings, pizza, tuna sammiches, hard boiled eggs, salads, chicken breasts, so many things...

Yeah Franks is the original hot sauce used for Buffalo wings as Marm said. the actual Buffalo sauce is just Franks and melted butter. franks is an OK sauce, but don't kill yourself trying to find it. There are much better hot sauces out there. If you have a BJ's or other warehouse type store you could try looking there. they might have large bottles of Franks.

(from the back of a Frank's bottle)

"Frank's Redhot Sauce was the secret ingredient used in the original Buffalo wings created in Buffalo, N.Y. in 1964..."

Frank's hot sauce is definitely the original hot sauce used for the Anchor Bar Buffalo Wings. It is manufactured by Durkeys. I have the original recipe, stolen from directly from Frank & Teresa. I will post it when I get home.
