- 4 tablespoons (1/4 cup) butter, melted

What to Do
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
Split the wings at each joint and discard tips; rinse, then pat dry. Place in a single layer in a shallow baking pan.

In a small bowl, combine the hot pepper sauce and melted butter; pour over wings Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours or overnight, turning several times
Remove wings from marinade, reserving marinade. Place wings on a sheet pan and broil for about 5 minutes on each side, brushing occasionally with marinade, until brown and crisp. Brush with remaining marinade before serving.
Deep-Fry Method (Original Buffalo-Style):

Deep-fry at 400 degrees F for 12 minutes or until cooked through and crispy. Place on paper towel and drain.
In a small bowl, combine the hot pepper sauce and melted butter. Toss wings in sauce to coat completely. Makes about 5 to 6 servings.
Don't have a thermometer? Maybe you do - an electric skillet or wok gives you a controlled temperature.
