Buffalo Wild Wings is a popular wing chain, known for their sports theme and extensive wing flavors. Their Blazin Challenge involves eating 12 of their spiciest wings in just 6 minutes. You need to sign a waiver before attempting this spicy challenge. At 350,000 Scoville units, the Blazin sauce is 60 times hotter than jalepeño peppers. Many YouTubers try the challenge and it often takes multiple attempts. Following is a transcript of the video.
This is Buffalo Wild Wings spiciest challenge. The Blazin Wings challenge requires you to eat 12 wings in 6 minutes.
Josh, Blazin Wing Challenge Survivor 2016: Hey friends, my name is Josh, also known as Hoshnasi here on the Youtubes. I have tried, attempted, and completed the Buffalo Wild Wings Blazin Wing challenge exactly one time. I probably wont do it again.
The wings are doused in BWWS Blazin sauce. Its 60 times spicier than jalepeño peppers. This is what it takes to win the challenge.
Josh, Blazin Wing Challenge Survivor 2016: I attempted and completed the challenge about two years ago. So the challenge was kind of intense, to be honest with you. I normally eat Blazin wings, I generally have about two to five in a sitting but thats on my own time.
The time limit and number of wings has changed over the years. Currently, you have to eat 12 wings in six minutes.
Josh, Blazin Wing Challenge Survivor 2016: The problem is, the wings are way more covered than they normally are in their sauce. It feels like its even more thicker and hotter.
The Blazin sauce is Buffalo Wild Wings hottest sauce. Its made of GHOST PEPPERS. It measures up to 350,000 units on the Scoville scale. You have to sign a waiver before you can do the challenge.
During the challenge, you cant drink ANYTHING. No dipping sauces or napkins are allowed. You can only remove the meat with your mouth.
Josh, Blazin Wing Challenge Survivor 2016: You just gotta start mowing through them. You dont get to chew, you dont get to really, you know, take your time with it. You just got to get that meat off and swallow it. I think you should watch Furious Pete.
In 2013, Furious Pete finished the challenge in 31 seconds. People have been attempting the Blazin challenge for years. Its especially popular on YouTube. Many people try multiple times. It took JP from Hellthy Junk Food FOUR tries.
Josh, Blazin Wing Challenge Survivor 2016: Just buckle down, get it done. Youve got six minutes, and thats it. Six minutes of pain, its longer than that actually, now that I think about the afterburn. But you can get it done.

Buffalo Wild Wings Blazin’ Wings Sauce
Be careful with this sauce.
At Buffalo Wild Wings they have a promotion called the “Blazin’ Wing Challenge.” For $12 you get a dozen wings slathered in this sauce. You have to sign a waiver even to try the challange. But, eat them all, in less than six minutes, while drinking nothing (!), and you get a “Blazin’ Challange Survivor” tee shirt and your photo on the wall of fame.
For those of you who know heat – Blazin’ Wings Sauce rates about 300,000 Scoville units. For those of you who don’t – That’s about 60 times hotter than a Jalapeño Pepper.
Seriously, be careful with this sauce.
This is a Sauce-Only recipe. So you are gonna need some cooked wings to cover with your Blazin’ Wings Sauce.

For some reason, I have mostly neglected chicken wings on this site so far, probably because I have been focused on sampling the many spicy chicken sandwiches out there (watch for a ranking of those soon). But I will be turning my attention to the world of wings in the coming weeks, and when it comes to the chain restaurants that focus on those spicy chicken parts, Buffalo Wild Wings remains my favorite (though Wingstop is a close second). They serve up some damn good wings, both bone-in and boneless, with plenty of sauces to choose from, and their menu has quite a number of offerings beyond that.
And among the chains, BWW has remained at the top as far as their spiciest wings and I don’t see that changing anytime soon. For the longest time, their Blazin’ Sauce was their hottest and it was a favorite of mine. They amped that up with ghost chilis for a while, and now they have taken that to an even higher level by adding Carolina Reapers. I just recently took advantage of their six boneless wing bundle (comes with fries for only $7.49) and got all six wings with the latest and hottest version of the Blazin’ sauce. (I may have already tried it earlier in the year, but I can’t remember if that was the ghost chili version or if they had added the Reaper already.)
BWW currently has a Blazin’ challenge that the more daring chilihead might want to try. You have to eat ten bone-in Blazin’ wings in five minutes with no drinks or sides. I haven’t tried it yet, and I’m not certain I will. If it was boneless wings I might. But the bone-in wings assure you will get plenty of the sauce on your face and hands, amplifying the pain. Not certain that is worth it just to get a thousand Blazin’ Rewards post (good for about one entre or appetizer). I’m not in it for the pain, I’m in it to enjoy the heat. So I will just take my time and revel in the wonderful burn delivered by these Carolina Reaper Blazin’ Wings.
Well, they definitely deliver in that department. After just one wing, you certainly feel the burn. After two, your mouth is on fire (if not before that). And three takes you on a direct path into the inferno. But there is still some good flavor there from the sauce, chicken, and breading, so it is not all pain and you find yourself grabbing yet another wing (at least I do). These are not for the meek, though, and may send even some chiliheads running for the fire extinguisher (or a tall glass of milk). But six is definitely doable, especially if you have celery, blue cheese, fries, and/or a drink close by to break up the heat (and I highly recommend their queso as an excellent appetizer and a good dairy product to offset the burn of the sauce).
When you bite into one of these wings, you get an immediate peppery taste with raisiny hints of dried ghost chili in the background. The sauce has a tang and a little bit of sweetness as well, delivering a richer and slightly smoky variation on the expected wing sauce taste. They use whole chunks of chicken which are tender and flavorful, though most of the taste you get is from the sauce. The wings have a decent ratio of breading to meat, though they tend to lose the crunch pretty quickly because of the amount of sauce, unless you are eating them almost straight out of the frier. I don’t count that against them because the crust still delivers good texture.
