"Where I'm from, they're just called 'Wings.' I've made this recipe for as long as I can remember - hopping from my hometown of Buffalo, NY, to Raleigh, NC, now to Seattle, WA. This wing recipe has been sought after by many that have tasted them, and I've never given up the recipe or prep method...until now."

  1. Heat oil in a deep-fryer or kettle to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Gently add the wings, one at a time, to the hot oil. Stir gently to assure the wings do not stick together. Fry the chicken wings in the preheated oil until cooked through and the are floating gently atop the oil, about 15 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the wing should read 180 degrees F (82 degrees C).
  3. Stir the melted butter, hot pepper sauce, garlic powder, and black pepper together in a large mixing bowl until thoroughly combined. Add the cooked wings to the sauce and turn to coat; transfer to a serving platter.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • For a "medium hot" wing, add 1 tablespoon red pepper flakes to the wing sauce.
  • For a truly "hot" wing, add 2 tablespoon white vinegar, 1 tablespoon red pepper flakes, and 1 tablespoon of your favorite super-hot hot sauce to the wing sauce. My favorites are Scorned Woman(R), Black Rhino(R), and Vicious Viper(R).

This is my husband's wing recipe, too. Peanut oil is really the only way to go. Crispier wings and the flavor just can't be beat. I don't like wings usually but these are MONEY. Try them for you...

I am born and raised in Buffalo, NY and this is not the best recipe for wings. REAL wings use only equal parts of Frank's Hot Sauce (no substitites allowed) and butter for mild sauce. That's i...

Oh man! These were really good. I pan fried them in about 1/4 inch of peanut oil for 10 minutes per side. Much better than using an entire gallon of peanut oil and this got the wings good and...

Nothing secret about this recipe. I brine my wings for a day, then rinse so the salt content is not high. I use a K.C. rub and in the smoker for 2 hrs using applewood for smoke. Deep fry @375F ...

Loved the recipe. @mimihouse27 its very distasteful to make comments on here that are so demeaning. If you really watched the video and read Scotts notes you could comprehend better. He stated t...

While this is a good basic recipe for Buffalo wings I would tweak the recipe by adding honey. I love the contrast between HOT and Sweet!

I learned to make wings the same way from a friend who ran a catering business. I do used minced garlic instead of garlic powder, but the recipe is the same otherwise. This concoction is a lit...

To Rich, she never said it was a secret she just mentioned that she never gave out the recipe before. What is your problem...They tasted wonderful and will make again and again, it is a keeper....

This recipe is pretty basic with most wing cooks. I on the other hand jazz them up with the Frank's hot sauce, or you can use your favorite. Add the juice of 1/2 a lemon juice and garlic. If ...
