Buffalo Sauce

  • 1 cup Buffalo sauce I prefer Frank's RedHot
  • ¼ cup salted butter
  • 1 Tablespoon brown sugar


  • Preheat. Preheat your grill to 425-450 degrees F.
  • Season. Season the chicken thighs on all sides with Hey Grill Hey Beef Rub.
  • Grill. Place the seasoned chicken on the grill and cook for 5-7 minutes per side. Continue to cook until you reach an internal temperature of about 155 degrees F.
  • Make the sauce. While the chicken grills, prepare the Buffalo sauce. Set a medium saucepan on your grill grates alongside the chicken. Pour in the Buffalo sauce, butter, and brown sugar. Melt the butter and heat the sauce, but don’t bring it all the way to a boil, as this will cause the butter to separate.
  • Baste. Once the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 155 degrees F, begin basting on both sides with the Buffalo sauce while flipping on the grill. Cook and baste until the chicken thighs reach 175 degrees F. If cooking breasts, only cook to 165 degrees F.
  • Serve. Remove from the grill and allow to rest for 5-10 minutes before serving.
