Get a deep fryer and deep fry the wings. Nice crispy sin that holds the buffalo sauce better than any other way. The sauce recipe is pretty good.

Just don't try and make it harder than it has to be. Preheat oven to 350 degrees 5 lb of wings 2 cups flour 1 tsp black pepper 2 tsp garlic powder 1 tb salt Mix it all up in a large zip lock bag. Add a few pieces at a time and shake. Put on a pan(s) that you have sprayed with cooking oil to prevent sticking. Keep an eye on the wings, they should be sizzling and golden brown in about 30 minutes or so. If you don't want the flour just dust the wings with the spices after you mix together. The hot sauce is not hard, we used it years before they ever did in Buffalo, I can tell you that. LOL

I tried to look for the basic oven fried too, but even with the recommendations from others where to look I still was not able to find it.
