"This is my wing recipe that I've tweaked over the last 10 years to suit my specific tastes. If you don't like vinegar and cayenne; these wings will not be for you. I've never seen a middle ground with this recipe; they are either raved about or politely passed up. If you like a hotter wing experience, double the amounts of chili powder and cayenne powder. Enjoy with chunky blue cheese or ranch dressing." — HEATHEDWARD23

Yikes! This is VERY Spicy and Tangy! I added quite a bit more Catalina and some chili sauce (Heinz) to tone down the heat. After tossing the first few wings, we decided to use the rest of the sauce to dip them - it's that potent. The flavor is very good, though. Thanks!
This recipy had very little flavor & the wings tasted like vinegar.
Pretty tasty! I love vinegar! I loved the spice of these wings. I dont know when I will make them again since my husband doesnt like wings in generally. But pretty yummy!
Very tasty. We tried one following this recipe exactly, and I would have been very happy with them all this way. My family likes to breath fire though, so to compromise we added 1 tbl hot pepper sauce, a few dashes of cayenne pepper and a dash of crushed red pepper flakes. This recipe is definitely added to our rotation.
very good, cut back on the amount of dressing a little to sweet
You have to be a lover of vinegar to fully appreciate this receipe.
I made these as written only I made sauces to go with them. Blue Cheese, Buffalo Sauce and Honey Mustard, all from this site. Thanks for the recipe.
i'm sure it's bc we love vinegar and we love spicy.. so this was super perfect for us.. i used worcestershire in place of malt vinegar.. ketchup instead of catalina dressing.. didn't dredge the wings.. just fried them straight up and then tossed in the sauce.. would love to see how the malt vinegar would change this up.. ty so much for the recipe
