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.

Hi Caine,

This is the recipe that I have that is supposedly the original. Is this what you have too?

Buffalo Chicken Wings

2.5 lb chix wings
1/2 cup Franks RedHot Sauce
1/3 cup melted butter

Deep fry wings in hot oil (400 degrees) for 12 minutes until fully cooked and crispy. Drain.

Combine redhot sauce and butter. Dip wings in sauce to coat.

(for equally crispy wings, bake for 1 hour at 425 degrees or grill 30 min over med heat)

Variations:

Add one of the following to redhot/butter mix and heat thru...

Tex-Mex: 1tbsp chili powder, 1/4 tsp garlic powder

Asian: 2 tbsp teriyaki sauce, 2 tsp ground ginger

while i prefer my wings deep fried, baked works well also, especially if you like them drier, and a tiny bit healthier. i also add a tbsp of powdered cayenne to my sauce to get the heat goin...

I can get it in Eugene, and it is wonderful. I can use it comfortably whereas most hot sauces are too hot. This one is very hot but it does not remove a layer of skin on the tongue. I found it on the top shelf in the sauce department and I even had to ask about it because I did not see it. Maybe it is there and just missed like I missed it.

.......another good one is Louisiana Original Hot Sauce. It is almost identical to Franks.

"Frank's" is definitely my "go to" sauce for general hot sauce use. Terrific on eggs, in sauces, on sandwiches, on pasta casseroles, etc., etc. Tasty & "just" hot enough without being incendiary.

I love Franks. I put it in chili, enchiladas, my own chicken sandwiches, chicken nuggets dipped in ranch and also in my deviled eggs.

I think GB is absolutely right. Franks is good sauce, and I prefer it over most, but be careful, Overhype will definately result in a letdown. I get it in large containers at Sams club. (our local "warehouse" store)

Frank's has also come out with a specific "wing sauce" in addition to it's regular hot sauce. It's okay, but not as spicy as when you make your own from Frank's & melted butter. I've used it occasionally if I'm making batches of wings in different flavors & just want an easy "basic" batch to add to the group.
