My kids and DH love the buffalo wings, but I am not crazy about hot/spicy burn your mouth types of foods, so this was made for me. I just used two drumsticks and marinaded them overnight and planned to fix for lunch. A tornado hit our home that day so we were without electricity and I had to cook them a different way, so I grilled them and basted with the sauce as they grilled. I just loved these even though it was the wrong cooking method. I will definitely make these wings for me and let the rest of the family have the hot ones!! Thanks for sharing SaucyCook. Made for Spring PAC 09.
