Is there a difference between a chicken wing and a buffalo wing?
Typically a chicken wing consists of the entire wing area from the joint to the tip. Buffalo wings are the smaller portions of the whole wing, so the drum and the flat.
Why are they called Buffalo wings?
One theory is they were created back in the 1960s at a bar in Buffalo, New York. 
Is there a difference between Hot Sauce and Buffalo Sauce?
Yes, there is a difference. Hot Sauce is basically hot peppers, salt, and vinegar. Mix hot sauce up with melted butter and that is Buffalo Sauce.
What dipping sauce should I use for my wings?
Most people prefer Blue Cheese or Ranch Dressing. Along with some carrot or celery sticks.
