These wings deliver the winning flavor! Grill Mates® Zesty Herb Marinade is the perfect short-cut to great taste with crushed red pepper providing the kick.

Those are NOT fiery. Even my tender-tongued kids didn't think this was fiery enough. I liked the flavor of the marinade, but in order to even be considered fiery, I'll add in a couple of ghost peppers and a Trinidad Scorpion pepper, and let it marinade for a couple of hours to allow the flavors to reach a proper level.
