  • Heat oil in a deep fryer to 375°F (You want just enough oil to cover the wings entirely -- an inch or so deep at least.).
  • Fry them for 10 to 15 minutes or until some parts of the wings begin to turn dark brown.
  • Remove the wings from the oil to a paper towel to drain, but don't let them sit too long because you want to serve the wings hot.
  • For Coating:
  • Combine another 1 cup butter, 1/2 cup hot sauce, ground pepper, and garlic powder in a small saucepan over low heat. Heat until the butter is melted and the ingredients are well blended.
  • Quickly put the wings into a large bowl. *You could also use a large plastic container with a lid for this.
  • Add the coating mixture and stir, coating all the wings evenly or simply put all the wings inside the container with the lid, add the sauce, then shake.
