Pittsburgh Pepper Company Gourmet Wing Sauce

Posted March 8, 2006 by

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.

Wing Sauces Galore
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.

Pittsburgh Wings

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!

    Nick – how does the Pittsburg wing sauce compare in heat to the others? Is it as hot as the Defcon 2? It looks frickin delicious!! I am a huge wing fan and now I’m thinking wings for breakfast.

    Well, all I have left is Defcon 1, that might not be the right start to my day this early in the morning. I’ll be popping Tums like TicTacs.

    Ahhhh…Hot wings for Breakfast.

    A True Chilihead!

    Beer and wings. Breakfast of champions. NOthing better than COLD wings the next morning. YUM




  5.  

    Not much heat to it, but I see on their site they’ve come out with a HOT version. The version I tried was the Original – the heat was more then Defcon 3 – but slightly less then Defcon 2.




  6.  

    Our #1 sauce is perfect for breakfast, especially after a bender weekend like the past one.

    Aaron

    Ahh Such delicious ideas for a spicy breakfast to start things out! haha
    I see I have another sauce to try on some wings come payday. I hope I don’t go broke with so many aspirations of sauces to try!

    Great news, Thanks Nick. Another local (somewhat, its in PA) Hot Sauce company. Even better, a three way tie.”Six people couldn’t agree on which sauce they thought was the absolute best, so a tie was agreed upon”
    I will need to try some of that.

    chris k

    I dont know what it is, but thanks for all the new hot sauces Nick has been listing here lately. Welcome Pittsburgh Pepper Co and Three Hot Tamales.

    MMMMMMMMMM Hot Wings and beer for breakfast

    Nick, just a thought, how about a Hot Wing eating contest at the FFS next year?? We could see if Dave is interested, our we could organize it ourselves with the Hotel Catering Director as a little HSB event. We could have different catagories like, the hottest, best flavorful and of course, who could eat the most. The champ could hold the title for one year or whatever. Just something fun to do. Heck some companies might donate sauces to try or whatever. Just a thought.




  12.  
    Aaron

    I’ll donate some time eating wings! 🙂

    I agree with chris k. Thanks for all the new hot sauces Nick has been posting lately

    Awsome sauce, I’m in the army over in Kosovo I had this sauce sent over here & all of the people in my Company love this sauce, Good going you got it right.

    cary solinski

    I tried your hot sauce and it was really good.i use it on most everything i cook,keep up the good work.




  15.  

    I’d throw some sauce into the mix, and maybe even join in the eating contest. However, it might be difficult ingesting with a respirator on.




  16.  
    Cheffy

    Hey John, you could do it!!!! Might look a little funny though. heh heh heh




  17.  

    Maybe I could just puree the wings and hook them up to an IV set on super-drip.




  18.  
    Cheffy

    Absolutely!!! You could run multiple lines as well.

    pmac

    WoW I am getting hungry, just the thought of pureeing some really tasty wings with my favourite wing sauce and sucking it up through a McDona**s sized straw. That would be awesome. Good idea for someone with jaw wired shut too 🙂




  20.  
    chris k

    Liquid wings? might work…lol
    Another feature of that would be that you can take them anywhere with little or no mess. Wings, anytime, anywhere.

    Creator, you working on that?




  21.  

    I have to perfect the boneless chicken first. I am having a bit of a problem though. The chickens look like puddles of meat, and I can’t get them to run on the chicken wheel I created. Atrophied meat is always good (veal), but these things would be better off in a water balloon slingshot. Stay tuned…




  22.  
    chris k

    What is the reason you need to use boneless chicken? Is it to eliminate the step of needing to remove the bones before you puree them, thus improving the manufacturing process to allow you to make more?




  23.  
    MattUK

    Creator we don’t want you to die, we need your sauces!! IV chicken wings would surely cause foreign body response and harm you. lol




  24.  
    Aaron

    Hey you never know if you dont try! haha Sometimes I feel like doing some good wings like that. Just keep me a steady drip all day to keep me going full speed




  25.  

    Ahhh Matt, you can rest assured nothing will happen. With the various Dr. Moreau experiments going on as we speak, I have learned to isolate the chicken wing genome, and genetically splice in failsafes to protect me from full body rejection in the form of nanoprobes. Quite interesting actually.

    Sounds like a CRISIS, Cataclysmic Result Incurred by Sipping Insidious Sauces.

    Pittsburgh Pepper Co………Good Stuff! I highly recommend giving it a try, you won’t be disappointed.

    The Pittsburg Pepper Co. has a new garlic hot sauce that is fantastic on your morning eggs. But those cold wings for breakfast sound really good. I love to add the hot to just about everything we eat ,it is great in meatloaf. I am going to be giving tons of this stuff as gifts to every hot head I know. Keep up the good work.

    And how are you related to James and Cheryl Solinski of Pittsburgh Pepper Company? It’s doubtful your revies is uunbiased.




  30.  
    Blade

    No I am not related to them. I am unbiased I just like to try new sauce and credit where credit is due. The defcon products are common stock in my pantry too. I also love Sweet Baby Ray’s BBQ maybe he is my real dad? Daddy can I borrow some cash?

  38.  

    [Comment ID #60595 Quote]

    I thought the same thing. Well, at least the Yankess can say they are from the “AMERICAN” league. LOL!!!
    The Createss is a Mets fan, always makes for an interesting playoff season.

    Now Huvason, stop shrinking your underwear, it won’t increase your tolerance for the upcoming wing eating competition next Saturday. 😀

    Blade

    NO problem I been a little trippy from pain meds. Bummer of a game the boys played today, always next week I guess. Here’s hoping you feel better Bret. Take care.

    I think I’m going to build stronger head gear before I try the Zero sample.lol

    [Comment ID #60647 Quote]
    Not a problem man, enjoy. And just remember to stare at the glow just before you close your eyes at night, it allows the Defcon assimilation to take effect a lot easier. 🙂

    [Comment ID #60646 Quote]
    Good morning Huv.

    [Comment ID #60649 Quote]
    Like I said, The Createss is a bit apprehensive about allowing me to serve up the ZERO wings. She thinks they really might hurt someone. I love the idea, but she, being the voice of reason within the Defcon Continuum, has the final answer on this one. Not to mention the fact I don’t want to have to sleep in the basement. 😀
