It is that time of the year again.  The second annual wingtacular! Saturday May 16th 23rd .  Last year we had 15 competitors making their own hot wing sauces.  Below is the picture of last years top three.

As you can see first place was the coveted wingtacular cup, yes it holds a beer.  Second place was a roll of toilet paper.  You know what that is for.  Third place was a wetnap.

Wingtacular Rules:

  • Make a sauce from scratch, you can use pre-made hot sauces to help, but no bottled hot wing sauces.
  • All wings will be fried by the wingtacular fryer.  Once the wings are cooked the wings are distributed to the competitors for saucing.  The competitors then sauce and put the wings into the serving vessel given to them.  Then they deliver the wings to the judging table. 
  • Three wings will be taken out for the panel of judges.
  • Once the judges have the wings we will continue to cook hot wings and sauce wings for each competitor’s sauce.  These wings will be labeled and placed on the public table for the popular vote.  Total points from the judges and the popular votes will be counted.  Top three in the points standing will be the 2009 Wingtacular Champion and the holder of the coveted Wingtacular Cup. 

This year we have moved venues and will have the capability to cook 80-100 hot wings at a time.  We will have double blind judging. 

Last year was a blast.  We went through 60lbs of hot wings.  This year is going to be bigger and better.  All of the competitors from last year have been invited back.  We will have 3 spots 5 spots open for new competitors, and are looking for one more judge a couple of judges with a stomach of steel.  If you are going to be in the Washington, DC area on Saturday, May 16th 23rd and are interested in competiting, send me an email [email protected].
