Loved this recipe- bravo! They came out perfect!! I used a lot more garlic than called for, but that's my own personal preference. Also used Franks Red Hot instead of straight hot sauce. Delish!

  7. Fry them for 10 to 15 minutes or until some parts of the wings begin to turn dark brown.
  8. Remove the wings from the oil to a paper towel to drain, but don't let them sit too long because you want to serve the wings hot.
  9. For Coating:.
  10. Combine another 1 cup butter, 1/2 cup hot sauce, ground pepper, and garlic powder in a small saucepan over low heat. Heat until the butter is melted and the ingredients are well blended.
  11. Quickly put the wings into a large bowl. *You could also use a large plastic container with a lid for this.
  12. Add the coating mixture and stir, coating all the wings evenly or simply put all the wings inside the container with the lid, add the sauce, then shake.
