So what are we to do with such a situation? Experiment! My coworker Michael went to the fridge and pulled out some condiments and other containers and we ended up with the following:
- Texas Pete hot sauce
- duck sauce
- various hot mustards
- organic Maple Syrup (yeah, I know, what maple syrup *isn't* organic? silly marketers)
My first experiment was to go whole hog and mix maple syrup, duck sauce, hot mustard and Texas Pete together, then spread it on a wing. It was definitely flavourful, but it was too many competing flavours all at once. Mainly the duck sauce overpowered everything else.
Experiment two proved to be a winner: equal parts maple syrup and Texas Pete. It was wonderful - a heavenly blend of sweet and heat. All it really needed was a thickening agent (perhaps butter). Otherwise it was about as awesome as awesome gets, which is good as I only had 5 chicken wings and was running out things to experiment with.
Since the maple syrup was imported from Canada, which means odds are it is from Quebec (they make 75% of the worlds maple syrup supply) I dubbed this delicious concoction the "Texas Pierre", tho Michael preferred "Maple Pete".
I highly recommended you try it on your next chicken wing.
