Buffalo Style Chicken Wings and Blue Cheese 

Buffalo chicken wings … the final frontier. Not really, but the cook can make or break a good batch of wings. It’s easy to overcook wings leaving you with a couch full of friends that won’t return your phone calls. Peep the recipe but check out the Instagram link to get your cook game on point.

Tips / Suggestions

  • For the blue cheese dip add as much blue cheese as you want (or as little). That’s what I love about making it at home. Everyone has a different level of blue cheese they like or tolerate. This way you can make it exactly the way you like.
  • If you want a more traditional buffalo sauce you will use Frank’s Red Hot sauce. I used a hot sauce I really enjoy and it was great. Not too strong of a buffalo flavor. Experiment with hot sauces you like.

Cooking time




Chicken wings grilled over wood and tossed with a homemade buffalo style sauce. To make things even better, a homemade blue cheese dressing for dipping.


  • 3 lbs 3 chicken wings

  • 2 tbsp 2 olive oil

  • 4 tbsp 4 poultry seasoning of choice

  • Buffalo Sauce
  • 1.5 cups 1.5 hot sauce of choice (most prefer Franks)

  • 1 tbsp 1 worcestershire sauce

  • 16 tbsp 16 unsalted utter (2 sticks) at room temp

  • 3 tbsp 3 apple cider vinegar

  • 1/2 tsp 1/2 garlic powder

  • 1/2 tsp 1/2 cayenne pepper

  • 1/2 tsp 1/2 paprika

  • 1/2 tsp 1/2 salt

  • Blue Cheese Dip
  • 1/4 cup 1/4 crumbled blue cheese

  • 1/4 cup 1/4 mayonaise

  • 1/4 cup 1/4 sour cream

  • 1/4 1/4 lime

  • 1 tbsp 1 parsley finely chopped

  • 1/2 tsp 1/2 salt

  • 1/2 tsp 1/2 cracked black pepper


  • Add the wings to a bowl and coat with the olive oil. Add the seasoning and mix thoroughly. Set aside.
  • Heat a sauce pan to medium low heat. Add all of the buffalo sauce ingredients (except the butter). Mix thoroughly.
  • Once you see the sauce begin to simmer, turn off the heat, and stir in the butter. Keep stirring until all of the butter is melted. Once the butter has melted add the salt, stir again, and set aside.
  • Mix all of the blue cheese ingredients thoroughly in a small bowl and set aside.
  • Light your grill (or fire pit) with wood logs (I used oak). Once the firewood as burned down and mostly just smoldering, spread the coals out, and then add the wings to the grill. Cook for roughly 15-20 minutes, rotating frequently. When the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees F they are done.
  • Add the wings to a mixing bowl and coat with the buffalo sauce. Toss the wings until fully coated. Serve the wings with the blue cheese dip, top with parsley, and dig in. You will only need 1/2 to 3/4 of the sauce. Save the rest for another use.
