Recipe by Tortoise

While wings are 'relatively' healthy, they still maintain the glorious crunch, tang, and richness of the authentic fried gems from Buffalo. This recipe is a product over a decade of experimenting, and borrows from a few different wing recipes, including Tyler Florence for the low bake-before-grill technique, which makes the wings both less fatty and easier to grill. These measurements are a rough guide; adding more butter and cutting out the chili powder will reduce the spice.
