Sloppy Buffalo Joes

I love wings and when I found this recipe I couldn't resist trying it... I was a little nervous dishing it up for Beau, since he isn't super excited about spicy food. Beau ate it up pretty quick without a word about it being too hot! Josh on the other hand, who loves spicy food, but also likes his sloppy joes sweeter then I make them, was not a big fan of these!
