    These were great. Hot wings are a regular around our house and this is my new recipe. I'm making 120 of these for the football game today. I leave the red pepper flakes out on half and it really cools them down. The first time I made them I couldn't refrigerate them and they still came out great. The hot sauce I use is Franks Red Hot and they come out great. Flour makes them nice and crispy. Thanks for sharing this Rita!

    Turned out great with deep fat fryer - I am not much of a fryer & used these as a first try on a new deep fat fryer (gets frying out of the house & on the porch LOL). Used 20 wings, cut off tips for soup stock & cut the drummetes from the middle section of wing. Had plenty of flour mix to cover these & a few more. 12 minutes at 375 degrees F in peanut oil made for perfectly cooked nongreasy wings. Did not crowd frying basket so had 4 batches to cook. Used a tupperware tub to toss wings & sauce - used that to fridge leftovers too! Used 3/4 cup of Marie Sharp's Belizean Heat hot sauce to make the wing sauce with good effect. It made a brilliant orange-red sauce that had depth of flavor with 3/5 heat. After a couple of pieces you were ready for blue cheese dip (used zaar # 55514) & celery or a coconut shrimp ( zaar - Outback Steakhouse Gold Coast Coconut Shrimp). Will definately be making again for guests! These are good & my waistline needs me to do this ONLY on special occasions (hmm,football games, hockey games, bullriding tourneys...:)) Thankyou Rita L.
    Made this for the boys. They really liked these. I thought they came out good. I used Cajun Spice Rub Mix Recipe Recipe #92066, which is excellant! A must make again for them and also me.

    Great wings! Loved the crispiness and the flavor of the cajun seasoning. Next time I will use the full 2 teaspoons as I was cautious and used only one. Thanks for the recipe Rita.
