Wing King's BBQ Buffalo Wings

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by NorthwestGal

This is a recipe from Drew Cersa (the Wing King) who recently appeared on the Live with Regis and Kelly show, in a cooking segment that featured appetizer recipes for Super Bowl Sunday get-togethers. This recipe took top honors in a Bobby Flay ThrowDown! competition. It sounded so scrumptious and perfect for a Super Bowl gathering, and I thought others might be interested in preparing it for their Super Bowl festivities.

Found these tasty and warm, could have had more heat! Of the four wing recipes we made for Super Bowl these took 3rd place with my guests. Good recipe, thanks for posting


  1. Chop up and sauté the shallot & garlic cloves with the butter.
  2. Add the dark beer, chili sauce, and BBQ sauce, and stir for 1 minute.
  3. Add the ancho chili peppers, brown sugar, honey, and cayenne pepper sauce, and stir for 2 minutes.
  4. While you are creating the sauce, drop 50 chicken wings (the amount you drop in at one time will depend on the size of your fryer) in a deep fryer until fully cooked. (The wings can also be grilled or roasted instead of deep fried.).
  5. Once wings are fully cooked, add the wings to a large mixing bowl. Add the sauce, and flip gently to be sure the wings are thoroughly coated with the sauce.
  6. Serve with a side of blue cheese dressing.
