I tried these wings several times using different barbecue sauces. Each time they were delicious and great to take along for a tail gate party. We liked them with a sweet sauce better than a real tangy one.

I used Sweet Baby Rays new Sweet and Spicy barbecue sauce and they were excellent! Nice and crispy and gooey at 1 hr.

Great recipe and great method for baking wings with a sauce. Pouring the fat from the baking pans and adding the sauce towards the end of the cooking time is the trick. I used two pans because you don't want to crowd the wings. I used Sweet Baby Ray's Honey BBQ sauce. Delicious, thank you for sharing.
