Buffalo Wild Wings Introduces Bulleit Bourbon BBQ Sauce and Brings Back Hot BBQ

Buffalo Wild Wings is answering fans’ calls to bring back Hot BBQ, the legendary sauce with a devoted social following, and is introducing new smoky-sweet Bulleit Bourbon BBQ sauce in collaboration with Bulleit Bourbon. Guests can indulge in the classic flavor they know and love, now back for a limited time, or try something brand-new and exciting.

Hot BBQ was first introduced to the menu in the 80s when the brand was known as BW3, and fans have been pleading passionately for its return since it was removed in September of 2020. From online petitions, fan social posts and even Twitter groups demanding the sauce’s return, there has been an outcry from fans expressing their love for Hot BBQ. Now, after a three-year hiatus, B-Dubs is proud to reintroduce guests to the spicy and savory flavor that they’ve been craving for a limited-time.

Plus, new Bulleit Bourbon BBQ sauce allows fans to not only drink their bourbon but eat it, too. Guests can now enjoy the sweet, smoky tangs of Bulleit Bourbon not just in their rocks glass but also right on their wings, sandwiches or wraps. These two sauces are the perfect addition for football season to continue elevating the flavor offerings available across B-Dubs’ already expansive lineup of 26 iconic sauces and seasonings.

"We are always listening to our fans and the passion for Hot BBQ has been overwhelming. We know there will be a lot of excited people out there to see this one back on the menu this fall,” says Tristan Meline, Chief Marketing Officer at Buffalo Wild Wings. “We’re also thrilled to introduce Bulleit Bourbon BBQ, bringing a sweet, smoky tang to our stacked lineup of sauces and seasonings. So whether you’re all about the Hot BBQ return or eager to try something new, our limited-only only sauces have you covered this football season.”
