  1. Preheat a grill to medium heat.
  2. In a large pot, mix together the hot sauce, cola, cayenne pepper, black pepper and soy sauce. Add the wings to the sauce - frozen is okay. Place the pot to one side of the grill, so the sauce comes to a simmer.
  3. Use tongs to fish wings out of the sauce, and place them on the grill for 8 to 10 minutes. Then return to the sauce to simmer. Repeat this process for about 50 minutes. The sauce will thicken. When the chicken is tender and pulls easily off of the bone, you have two options. You can dip one last time and serve for sloppy style wings, or serve right off the grill for dryer wings.

I personally would have given this recipe only three stars where it not for the fact that my friends raved over these wings. I made them for the super bowl and followed the recipe exactly. The taste was good but I felt that the soy sauce was a little overpowering and the hot sauce taste was not strong enough. The sauce was also a little runny and not as spicy as I would have liked. I prefer a rich and hearty sauce with a little extra bite to it. When I make these again (which my fiends will kill me if I don't) I wont actually cut down on the soy sauce used but instead double the amount of hot sauce used and possibly melt some butter into the sauce as well.

I love your recipe but I think for safety reasons ,you should put aside the sauce for dipping and eating , You should use sauce that you have set aside to dip the raw chicken and then put on the grill. then the sauce that you have put aside for eating you can use for after the chicken is done for dipping.

These are very very good! Since it was early Feb., I decided to try this inside the house instead of on the grill-simmering on the stovetop, then baking in the oven for 10 minutes at a time. It turned out very good, and they were a big hit with the family!

Wonderful Wings! Before placing the wings in the sauce, I rubbed them down with salt & papper, garlic powder & cayenne pepper. This seemed to give them that extra little punch. My guest raved about them and could not stop eating them. Everyone left with the recipe in hand. Thank you so much for sharing this with us!

This is an awesome recipe... My husband and I love buffalo hot wings and I was looking for something different to make. These wings hit the spot!! I used more hot sauce and a little less coke because we LOVE our wings spicy. Thanks for the recipe.

A little work but worth it!Try using CHERRY COKE and adding a little honey(but watch it carefully on the grill, it will burn easy).

These wings turned out great. Dip in the sauce one last time for hot wings, serve dry for medium wings.

This recipe is fantastic and I agree, these wings are way better than fried wings. I have made them many times and I always get rave reviews!
