Tell me if I’m wrong guys but haven’t we all dreamt at some point of being a secret agent? Well for Ged at The Chilli Pepper Company this is more a delusion than a dream as I found out when I got the instructions for my next review which is of 4 chicken wing sauces/rub. I was told that they should be shaken and not stirred??? Really? Hope your not winding me up here lol Anyway, as I was saying I have 4 products here chilli peeps. All created by Ged and his brother Brian from Canada. Both as crazy as the other when it comes to Chilli products.

The first is Flamin’ wing seasoning which Ged has kindly coated 2kg of wings for me and left in the fridge over night to soak up all of the flavours and spices. From here my instructions where simple, 200’c in the oven for 15 minutes, then turn and put back in for another 15 minutes. And what a smell I am left with. It’s a mix of bbq and fresh chilli aroma, beautiful. Next up I had to split the wings in to 4 piles, one to be left with just the rub, and the other 3 for the sauces which are…..

Flip the bird, Teryaki wizard, and El Diablo.

So after shaking the wings in each sauce I can on with the taste test along side Alex and Scottie 2 Hottie. First off, Flamin’ Wing Seasoning (ingredients at bottom of review) Awesome dry rub which has truly given the wings a crunchy outer by very moist flesh. Hint of garlic and cinnamon with a lovely mild sweetness and a mildly warming heat. Personally I could quite easily polish off the whole 2kg of wings with just this on. Yum yum.

Ingredients for Flamin’ wing seasoning: Salt, Sugar, Paprika, Onion powder, garlic powder, cayenne pepper, black pepper, cinnamon powder, baking powder, bhut jolokia chilli powder.

Next up, Flip the bird. Considering I am not a mustard lover at all I was surprised I liked this. Well actually I loved this. The mustard flavour I am getting is so mild as mixed in with the tomatoes and spices. Packs more of a punch than the dry rub alone but the mustard/tomato combo offers a completely different flavour and the sauce gives a great slightly sticky messy touch that a wing should really have.

Ingredients for Flip the bird: Tomatoes, Mustard, Vinegar, Water, Paprika, Garlic powder, Celery seeds, Salt, Black pepper, Cayenne pepper.

Moving on to what I would say is of similar heat to the Flip the bird but the flavours in my opinion are taking to an even higher level is Teryaki wizard. This one over all is my personal favourite. Pretty hot but not a killer. The soya sauce and honey are main flavours than pull through and these are a real sticky messy treat. Very fruity on the palate and again with our good friend Mr Naga Jolokia supplying the warmth. Without a doubt my number 1 sauce here.

Ingredients for Teryaki Wizard: Soya sauce, Tomatoes, honey, orange juice, sugar, balsamic vinegar, Sesame oil, Naga jolokia chilli, Fresh ginger, Garlic.

And last but not least, El Diablo. Your immediately thinking that this sauce will be milder as having Scotch bonnets in, but then you see the Naga Morich and finally, CHILLI FLAVOUR. Could be interesting. Straight in with first wing. And already I can feel the heat. First to drop is Alex, then Scottie. I’m hanging on and get through two wings before hitting the milk. Again a very sweet and slightly bbq flavour with an insane kick. Lips are on fire and I actually got some lovely chilli burn too, looks like I’m wearing red lipstick. Well it is the weekend after all 😛 You can see my reaction to the wings, hot hot hot. The rub and first 2 sauces are for the normal chilli head, the last is for the mentally insane. So I will definitely be buying more haha.

Ingredients for El Diablo: Scotch bonnet chilli, Naga Morich, Vinegar, Salt, Spices, Garlic, Chilli flavour.

Follow Geds way of cooking them and apply the sauce as he says and you will get one hell of a payoff. These really are a treat. And at £2.50 for the rub and £4.00 for the sauces you can’t go wrong. They go a long way. Take a look today at www.chileseeds.co.uk

Until next time, if it burns going in, it will burn coming out. Scooby out.
