Pittsburgh Pepper Company Gourmet Wing Sauce
The Pittsburgh Steelers won the Super Bowl and the Pittsburgh Pepper Company Wing Sauce served us well in our annual wing off. Why the long delay in this review? Well I wanted to wait until readers could buy it online directly from the Pittsburgh Pepper Company website. And the of course, the 2006 Fiery Foods Show got underway and things got pushed aside. But we’re back on the review track and your tastebuds will be much happier.
Winging it for the Super Bowl
Ingredients: Hot Sauce, Red Cayenne Peppers, Vinegar, Water, Salt, Guar Gum, Xanthan Gum, Ascorbic Acid to Preserve Freshness, High Oleic Sunflower Oil, Hydrogenated Soybean Oil, Spices, Contains 2% or less of Salt, Soy Lecithin, Artifical Color, Hydrolyzed Soy Protien, Autolyzed Yeast Extract (contains Barley, Milk and Egg Components).
Don’t be scared by the ingredient list. Frankly, I don’t know what all the ‘lyzed stuff is all about but it sure doesn’t effect the flavor of this wing sauce.
Hey, nice flecks you got there.
There may have been a winner in the Super Bowl, but our wing off resulted in a tie. A three way tie at that. Six people couldn’t agree on which sauce they thought was the absolute best, so a tie was agreed upon between Pittsburgh Pepper Company, Defcon 2 and the Anchor Bar Honey BBQ (not a real wing sauce in my opinion).
But I’m very glad to see that Pittsburgh Pepper Company can hold its own amongst some more seasoned competitors. With a consistency close to a Frank’s & Butter mix, this gourmet wing sauce evenly coats each wing and still manages to stick around and maintain its flavor. The bite of the vinegar is a bit more then some wing sauces – but it works in this case. It helps to open up your taste buds and your nostrils so the pepper party in your mouth is that much more fun. Try it out on your next slice of pizza as well!
