The real deal, Member Davreyn

Great wing sauce. I used it for the Superbowl which is no small event around here. Got lots of compliments and asked for the recipe several times. People were saying it was better than the local wing joint. Its a bit on the mild side but that is very adjustable with the Red Pepper.
