Spontaneous Combustion Chicken Wing Sauce is made by Southwest Specialty Food, Inc (the company sometimes goes under the Ass Kickin’ brand), and this sauce comes all the way from Arizona USA. I picked this up from my local Hot Headz online shop since I love trying different wing sauces, and really liked the packaging this sauce comes in.
Spontaneous Combustion Chicken Wing Sauce is your typical glossy and runny wing sauce constancy, and is a muted orange colour. There is vinegar on the aroma, as well as raw chilli extract will clear out any cold.
So as I’ve mentioned in previous posts about Wing Sauce, it’s only fair to review these sauces when cooked with chicken wings rather than trying the sauce in isolation. That said, when you do try the sauce alone it’s full of instant searing, burning heat that makes my eyes water every time. This sauce has not got a deep or complex flavour, and the heat seems to get in the way of any subtle balance between pepper and vinegar.
Spontaneous Combustion Chicken Wing Sauce is a seriously hot sauce that makes tangy and fresh tasting super-hot wings, but it doesn’t have the full flavour that I like from sauces such as Louisiana Wing Sauce or Frank’s RedHot Xtra Hot Sauce. The sauce seems to be heat over taste, and although this is disappointing it does have its uses such as ‘Roulette Wings’, or adding to other wing sauces to beef up the heat.
I haven’t got much to say about Spontaneous Combustion Chicken Wing Sauce since it’s a fairly one-dimensional sauce, but it does make exceptionally very hot and tasty wings. Personally I’d rather a more full flavoured sauce and add extra heat.
