I cooked our wings at 350 for 1 hour and they came out perfectly glazed and brown and delicious. I turned down the heat on ours and only used 1 tsp. chili powder and less hot pepper sauce, about 1/2 as much. Al Roker, you rock.. These wings are GREAT! Thanks!

Maybe it was just us, but we didn't find these spicy at all. I was trying 3 different wing recipes and these were our least favorite. They are "ok", but for us they just had too little flavor.

I used Frank's Hot Sauce and it worked fine. We loved the wings and had them when friends were over so they could help me rate them! We all give them thumbs up, so you know they will be made here again! We all loved the hot/sweet combination of flavors! We had them with rice and peas with mushrooms. It was a very nice dinner if I do say so myself! Thanks!
