These are very, very good wings!! DH and I spent a lot of time at the Outback when we were dating. The one thing that was always on our table were the Kookabura wings. When I made this recipe we tried them with and without the sauce because we knew true Kookabura wings were drier than the average buffalo wings. Even though neither version were really Outback Kookabura wings, both were good, but, to us, the sauce-free version were closer--they just need a bit more cayenne pepper than the recipe calls for. The pics I submitted are the dry version. Since our grocery store only had the 2-bone wing portion on hand--no drumettes--I kept cutting back on the fry time and although they seem a little dark in my pics they were very tender. The reason I'm rating this a 4-star recipe is only because they're not quite up to Outback standard, but they're close and I found this recipe is only one of two recipes all over the Internet for Outback wings and it's the better one. Thanks JLBurnell for posting this winner on RecipeZaar!

I thought this recipe was very close to the Outback wings. Regardless, the wings were very good and will be my go to wings. I did everything according the recipe, but instead of frying the wings I baked them in a 375 degree oven for about 60 minutes. The wings came out crispy and tasted great. I'm sure frying them would be even better. I also omitted the sauce and ate the wings plain. They were still good.

Outback has closed down in the UK now and this is a Fantastic Recipe use it all the time now.
My local shop has just started to sell Crystal Hot sause and this is by far the best one you can get.

These are wonderful!! The coating makes them look dark, but they stay so moist! We didn't have Louisiana Hot Sauce, so we barely watered down Ken's Buffalo Wing Sauce (THE BEST WING SAUCE) and just dribbled it over the wings so they were slightly moist. WOW, if you are hankering for Outback wings, these will satisfy!!! Now for the Gingerbread Martini recipe....yep, I make those too!!

very good and very close to the original since this comes from Todd wilbur it has to be close right! The one change I make is reducing the salt by half which is still a stgrong salt flavor but just so that someone concerened with salt intake knows that you can get away with 1/4 of the salt called for and not risk any flavor loss. thanks for sharing such a close cousin of the original so we can get our "fix" taken care of from home!
