    Yeah no ****...that sounds awful! I like hot chicken but there are better ways to do it that won't alter your DNA and make your offspring take up the banjo.

    Thinking about it the recipe for buffalo sauce is hot sauce and butter. This is a paste made with spices and a fat. Similar concept.

    I used to think Popeyes and Bojangles was pretty good but this hot chicken has ruined that for me. They are boring by comparison. So are those hot wings at KFC. The taste explosion is like crack.

    Hattie B's Hot Chicken Recipe : Food Network

    A Hattie B's recipe.

    Note 3 tablespoons of cayenne in this one recipe! Garlic powder and brown sugar balance out the flavor. I'm guessing the paprika is mostly for color.

    A new Hot Chicken place right by my house opened - but I haven't been.
    Rooster's Hot Chicken next door to Carmike.
    Anyone else try this place?

    Hot chicken is great. Hattie b's is great but inconsistently spiced. First 2 visits, hot flavor was incredibly hot. Last visit, it was very weak.

    Hot chicken is way better than buffalo wings. Everyone who likes spicy food should at least try it once. Bishop's meat and 3 sells hattie b's chicken in the nashville burbs. It's just as good with much less wait.

    If you aren't a seasoned hot food eater, get medium heat. Because it will make you poop fire.
    Since I'm a few hours from nashville
    Ocharleys hot chicken: 7.5/10

    KFC's 6/10

    Nothing beats the real thing, but I just can't drive 2 hours for a meal.

    It is delicious.

    I guarantee you would like it if you like spicy foods. Never met a Mexican who doesn't.

    It has become a "must eat" every trip into nashville.

    O Charley's version is an OK way to dip your toes in the water to see if you like it. If you do.. You'll like the real deal twice as much.

    Some recipes use other oils for the coating other than lard.

    Anyone ever eat at Pepperfire or Boltons. Bolton's had the best Hot Chicken around for a long time. Unfortunately the last time we were there it wasn't great.
    Same goes for Pepperfire. We got their hot and it was blah.
    Hattie B's is pretty good. We got the extra hot and it was good but not as hot as they acted like it would be. The chicken was moist and tender. You could taste the spices on the chicken and the crust.
    Still none of them beat the original Bolton's :(
