The Origins of Chicken Wings and Hot Sauce


Deep-fried chicken wings have long been associated with America’s southern states. But from the National Chicken Council we learn that the idea of chicken wings cooked in fire breathing (our words) hot sauce began in 1964 at a little place in Buffalo, New York called the Anchor Bar. Teressa Bellissimo, the bar’s owner, invented the first hot wings late one night when she cooked leftover wings in hot sauce and butter for her son and his buddies. She called them Buffalo Wings. They were an instant hit and so she served them to her customers the next day and a national tradition was born.


Fast forward a few decades to the 1980s when American consumers began choosing boneless and skinless breast meat instead of whole chickens. As a result, chicken producers began selling the wings as a side item. Sports bars soon discovered that hot wings were becoming a vital part of the TV sports watching culture, especially football. And they also realized that the only thing better than hot wings was hot wings with friends and a pitcher of beer.

At SmokeEaters, we offer the best wings San Jose CA families rave about and we invite you to join us.
