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!
We visited Thunder Canyon Brewery in Tucson, Arizona to try their hottest wings, Natural Disaster hot wings. This hot wing sauce has a pretty decent flavor, thick texture and a good amount of heat. The wings were almost as spicy as the XXX Atomic wings at Quaker Steak and Lube. If you like spicy wings, these are definately worth a sample. I am rating the heat of these wings a 7 out of 10 on the heat scale.
When Carrie and I were traveling last week we visited Pic-a-Lilli Pub in Atlantic City, NJ. This was the place advertised as having the hottest wings in the city. When we asked the bartender if the wings were very hot, he told us that most people who order the wings are lucky if they can finish two! He told me that he would be very impressed if I was able to eat six, so Carrie and I ordered a dozen to share.
When the wings came out you could see piles (literally) of cayenne pepper powder on top. The first bite tasted very similar to your typical buffalo wing sauce. As we ate the wings, they seemed quite dry due to all of the cayenne powder on top. Carrie and I each ate our six wings with ease. The bartender could not believe that Carrie ate all six.
I told the bartender that the wings tasted as if they had a spicy buffalo wing sauce and then piles of cayenne pepper powder were dumped on top. He said that is basically all they do. The wings were spicy, but nothing scary. I would not go out of my way to eat these wings if you are looking for really spicy. You can recreate the wings for yourself by ordering hot buffalo wings and dumping approximately half a container of cayenne pepper powder on top of the wings. I am rating these wings a 5 out of 10 on the heat scale.
