I recently had the misfortune of trying the Death Wings Challenge at Lindy’s at Redline Sports Grill. The challenge requires that you eat one dozen of their Death Wings in under 20 minutes with no sauce, drinks, or anything besides the wings and then keep the wings down without eating or drinking anything else for another 10 minutes. If you manage to succeed, you are rewarded with free wings….
When I arrived, there had only been two people to succeed at this challenge so it sounded like a good idea to try it. Three of my friends decided to take on the challenge with me. You will have to check out the video to see the results!
I will tell you that this is a very tough wing challenge and newbys should not even attempt this challenge. I am rating the sauce a 9 out of 10 on the heat scale! I was told that the sauce is a combination of multiple sauces and peppers with some powder and two different extracts. One of the hardest parts about this challenge was the sheer volume of sauce, these wings had a thick layer of hot sauce caked on them!
The worst part about this attempt was the aftermath. You probably noticed that I was walking around a lot in the video, that was because my stomach was going crazy. As a matter of fact my stomach continued to rebel against me the whole night. It felt like the sauce was burning a whole through the wall of my digestive system if I laid in one spot for too long!
If you feel like you are extra rugged and have easily eaten the hottest wings at any restaurant that you have
visited, then come to Tucson and give this wing challenge a try! Actually, make sure you let me know that you are going and I may stop by to watch! If I don’t join you, make sure you record your attempt and send it to me, I would be happy to watch it and possibly post it!
Rippin Red’ Hot Wing Sauce is not your ordinary buffalo wing sauce. Sure, the sauce still has that buffalo wing sauce flavor in the background, but this sauce has a very rich buttery parmesan cheese flavor in the front. The flavor of this hot wing sauce is quite good and the sauce is lacking in heat. Even in the hot version of the sauce, it was not very spicy. If you can’t handle spicy sauce, this is a great choice for your wings. I am rating the heat of the hot version of this wing sauce a 3 out of 10 on the heat scale.
Mike: I had tried the Nuclear Wings at Alliger’s House of Wings once when I was in college and remembered seeming a little hotter then. The wings were quite spicy and would be a VERY tough challenge for someone who does not eat much spicy food, but I didn’t think the hot wings were too spicy. The flavor of the sauce is similar to a typical Buffalo style wing sauce with extra heat. I am rating the heat of these Buffalo wings a 5 out of 10. These wings were slightly less spicy than the hottest wings at Buffalo Wild Wings, although the wings were close enough to fit in the same heat rating.
Josh: When thinking about my trip back home, I was dreading this wing challenge a little bit. The wings were definitely hot, but not unbearable. I was able to finish all of my wings fairly easily. I would definitely put these wings in the same heat category with Buffalo Wild Wings’ hottest wings, although the taste of the sauce was very different. I am rating the heat of these wings a 7 out of 10 on the heat scale.
Josh’s friends handled these wings fairly well. That is why we decided to have them try a Habanero Pepper. If you have not seen that video yet, it is a little further down the page and its a good video. The post is titled, “Fun at the Cabin”.
Mike: The hottest wings at Buffalo Wild Wings are the Blazzin’ wings. The Blazzin wing hot sauce tastes similar to your traditional wing sauce with some additional heat and some extra touches of black pepper and habanero pepper flavor. I thought the flavor of the hot wing sauce was pretty good. Although these wings had more heat than your average buffalo wings, the heat was no where near unbearable, I actually had more of the sauce on some celery after filming. On the other hand, the sauce did not agree with our digestive systems! Carrie and I both felt uncomfortable when going to bed due to the activity in our systems. I have definitely had hotter wings than this that did not disturb my system as much as these. I am rating these wings a 6 out of 10 on the heat scale.
Josh: Coming into the wing challenge at Buffalo Wild Wings I didn’t expect them to be too hot, until the waitress questioned our order twice. I soon became nervous about the wings and was concerned because the waitress said that the wings were hot and most people did not like the flavor. The first two wings were far less challenging then many of the hot sauces I have tried. Then, once I ate my third wing, the heat began to set in. It became much more of a challenge as I worked through the remainder of the six wings. I thought the flavor was excellent, but I was a little disappointed in the heat after the way the waitress hyped it up. I am rating these wings a 7 out of 10 on the heat scale.
