Recipe by Nancy Blair
"If you are looking for a less greasy alternative, grill the meat instead of frying. Serve with blue cheese dressing. You can also use thighs in this recipe. Using thighs is less wasteful - no bones, no tips to throw away. Just good eating! Serve these wings with blue cheese dressing."

salt and pepper to taste
hot pepper sauce
distilled white vinegar
I didn't try this recipe yet, but in the creator's defense, I think there has been a misunderstanding. Reviewers are complaining the recipe wasn't hot (spicy) enough. Where the recipe submitter states to use "2 teaspoons hot pepper sauce", I believe she is referring to McIlhenny's Tabasco sauce, which is nearly 10 X hotter than Frank's REDHOT. Any chef worth her salt in the kitchen knows that peppers (and their derivatives, i.e. hot sauce) have a heat rating scale varying from zero (red bell pepper) to 16 million (Pure capsaicin and Dihydrocapsaicin). Frank's REDHOT rates 450 units on the heat scale; McIlhenny's Tabasco rates 2,500-5,000 units; therefore Tabasco is roughly 5-10 times hotter than Frank's. If so inclined, try the recipe again, and make the adjustments, either use Tabasco as the recipe is written @ 2 tsp., or use 5-10 times the Frank's (2 teaspoons X 5-10, anywhere from 3.5 to 7 Tablespoons, which is nearly 1/2 cup Frank's). Add slowly to taste. I realize the cooking levels and knowledge of participants on this site varies as much as the pepper ranking scale, so let's cut each other a bit of slack and work together to share some fantastic recipes, Allrecipes cooks! Cheers!
My husband likes his wing spicy. Unfortunately he hated this sauce. Said it tasted too vinegary and had no spice. I won't make this again.
First, the picture listed is NOT how the wings should look. You should have golden brown wings that are well done (that's the way we enjoy them, anyway) second, Red Hot pepper sauce usually makes the best sauce. I only add as much butter as needed, depending on the heat you're looking for. More heat = less butter. If you are really looking for REALLY HOT wings, cook your RED HOT pepper sauce until reduceded by about a third. You will then LOVE the heat it brings on. And one other thing, DO NOT add any vinegar to this recipe and be sparing with the salt. Any pepper sauce you use will have more that enough
vinegar already as well as sodium.
PS I've been making these for 15 years and have never had one person not love them.
Aww heeeellll no! Ya finnah call these wings? Yo, this recipe is staler than my old Tone Loc records. Tarek Bourie in the hiiizzzzooouuuusssse!
I like them. They could be hotter, if you like it that way - easy fix - just add more cayenne.
This is NOT the original recipe. There is no added vinegar to the Frank's Hot Sauce and butter. Also, this is so bland. You need at least 1/2 cup of Frank's to give it any heat.
This recipe I thought was tasteless. Definitely not hot enough.
It's a good sauce, but it does lack any heat. I used a good spicy pepper sauce, but the extra vinegar cut the heat too much.
Also, one tip that helps increase the heat a little: once you've coated the wings with the sauce, throw them back into the fryer for a minute more or so. Then drain and re-coat. Very good stuff.
